This shot at the Yaquina Head Lighthouse took a while to get. Lighthouses, like benches, are a motif that shows up a lot in my pictures. The concept of a lone lighthouse and its keeper has always been fascinating to me. So given the chance to drive the Pacific Coast Highway, I marked off every lighthouse that I could get to. I think from Morro Bay to Portland, I left out only two. But alas, I wasn't fortunate enough to get to all of them. The first one, was under construction. The second and the third one was closed. I got one or two in between, and then headed to the last one, the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. As soon as we got there, it started raining. Hard. Determined to get a good shot of at least one lighthouse, I refused to leave. A park ranger came around and asked us when we were going to leave, because everybody else was gone, but the park wasn't closed yet. I assume if we left they would close the park. Disappointing the ranger, we stuck around, and eventually we were rewarded with this beautiful sky.
