he Yaquina Head Light, also known early in its existence as the Cape Foulweather Lighthouse, is a lighthouse on the Oregon Coast of the United States. It is located in Lincoln County, near the mouth of the Yaquina River near Newport at Yaquina Head. The tower stands 93 feet (28.3 meters) tall, and is the tallest lighthouse in Oregon. Yaquina Head Light was automated in 1966 and is currently an active aid to navigation. The lighthouse still uses its original 1868 French-made Fixed Fresnel lens.
This was a problem negative to scan and process. It had a significant grain and uneven development resulting in lack of smoothness in the sky. I liked the stark look of the trees and decided to post it despite its shortcomings.
