A NIGHT IN BANDON

At the last minute my buddy Allen Larkin and I decided to head to Bandon for some night photography scenes. The tide was out, the clouds were gone, and the wind was still. We couldn't have asked for a better night down on the beach in Bandon Oregon.

THREE SISTERS WILDERNESS

An off and on night of rain mixed with constant wind kept us in our tents most of the night, until a little break in weather gave way to allow us to crawl out and photograph the Milky Way reflecting in one of the Green Lakes. By morning, the rain was gone and a sky of blue dominated.

In the dawn of morning, I reluctantly crawled out of bed to see if an "epic" sunrise would greet us, but no such clouds existed for that. The morning was windy and cold, so I set up the camera to work on its own and I crawled back into the warmth of my sleeping bag and tent.

This is the shot the camera captured of the South Sister and the Green Lakes Basin located in the Three Sisters Wilderness.

The Howling Dog? OR Wizards Hat?

So where exactly is the mysterious rock named "Wizards Hat"? It is a question that when asked to strangers and some locals on the beach in Bandon, some get it right, and some don't. Others give this rock a completely different name depending on where you stand before it and allow your imagination to determine the shape.

With any common imagination, this rock from the north takes on the appearance of a standing Sea Lion. From the east, the rock takes on the shape of a wizards hat, and when viewed from the south, the rock resembles a howling dog.

The Howling Dog rock is often given the name Wizards Hat because it does resemble a wizards hat from the east, a shape that looks more like a wizards hat than the actual Wizards Hat which is located in the cluster of rocks south of this rock and south the Face Rock parking lot.

The towering rock in this photo IS the HOWLING DOG even though from this view, it looks more like a wizards hat, but it is not. Much like the infamous inkblot tests, different people see different things.
Look harder and you can even see the resemblance of a standing Sea Lion. But don't be fooled. This is still the Howling Dog, no matter which way and which side you look it.  And, by-the-way, according to the Indian legend, the Howling Dog rock has a name. His name is Komax.

So what is the point you ask? It is really just a rock! The point is, it has an official name, no matter which way you look at it.

CLOUDLESS NIGHT

On this night, no clouds. We had to get creative to find the "drama" in the scene. So instead of looking to the heavens for inspiration, we looked down.

NIGHT OF THE MOON

A night of brilliant stars, a stunning half moon, and a touch of drifting fog made for some great night scenes on the beach in Bandon. The late summer weather has been excellent for night photography, and the week is only suppose to get better.

Introduction
Thank you for checking out my profile.  Though I was born in Ohio, I have lived 95% of my life in the State of Oregon.  I do consider myself a true Oregonian, and love showing off and sharing what Oregon has to offer both in the tourist realm and the hidden treasures within.
 
I have been photographing the state of Oregon for over 30 years. Though I feel I am well educated about the state, there is still plenty to discover and learn. I hope to inspire you to also get out and see what has always been...just around the corner.
 
I have lived in Coos Bay Oregon most of my life.
