Bandon is probably the most beautiful spot I’ve been to on the Oregon Coast. It was my first time photographing the area and was amazed by the gorgeous beach and incredible sea stacks. It really was a photographers paradise. I was speaking to a friend Yesterday and he made the comment that you could spend a week shooting this beach and still not get bored! While doing my research I found a particular Sea Stack that caught my aptly nicknamed Howling Dog (Above – *corrected by a local expert I originally misidentified the sea stack as wizards hat another local seastack). We were fortunate enough to get a really fantastic sunset and wonderful moody blues highlights of orange. My last few attempts to shoot a sunset on the coast have been fruitless and made this epic sunset that much more bittersweet.
Landscape photography to me is a very meditative process. It requires slowing down, taking in and enjoying your surroundings.
