Yaquina Head - Newport, Oregon

Many of those who follow me are well aware of my love for lighthouses. Living in New England, there are some amazing ones that can be found from Connecticut to Maine. I am always on the lookout for lighthouses wherever I go. My frequent trips to the Oregon Coast has allowed me to find some new gems to shoot. While there are as many lighthouses on the Oregon Coast, the ones that are there are quite beautiful. This particular lighthouse, Yaquina Head Lighthouse in Newport, Oregon, is perhaps Oregon's most picturesque. The light was built by the US Army Corps of Engineers in the 1870's. The lighthouse tower measures 93 feet tall and is the tallest in Oregon. It is managed and maintained by the The Bureau of Land Management and is not far from the center of town.
