Yaquina Lighthouse

Yaquina Lighthouse

Near Newport, Oregon, is a place called Yaquina Head, once upon a time known as Cape Foulweather. Jutting out into the ocean is a point of land weathered by the waves, carved into a point, where in 1871, a lighthouse was constructed. To this day, it is the tallest lighthouse in Oregon, and was even featured in the 2002 film "The Ring". To date, I don't believe I have ever visited a more forlorn place...nor have I visited a place with so many flies. The odd, unexpected thing about this place is the sheer mind-boggling amount of kelp flies buzzing about, the benign bugs zipping about in such numbers that I honestly had difficulty keeping my footing for this HDR shot, since the flies would land on my legs and tickle them. Still, the trip to Yaquina Head was completely worth it!
