• Oregon Coast – Boiler Bay and Otter Crest


    Lately, I went back to playing with long time exposure (LTE) imagery. Additionally, I like the look of black&white. Here I have a small collection of pictures taken at Boiler Bay and Otter Crest State Wayside during a recent trip down the Oregon coast.

  • Oregon Coast – Florence

    Siuslaw River Bridge with Fog
