Between Florence and Newport, Oregon, on the central coast is the little town of Yachats. It is in the middle of spectacular coastal scenery with Cape Perpetua only a few miles away, and many Oregon coast state parks easily accessible.
After sunset, I made a 2 minute exposure. This softened the waves and made the ghost like. f20, 110 seconds, iso 200
Yachats, Oregon, central Oregon coast has a wonderful trail that runs along the coast in town and ends at an enormous beach north of town. It is often a good place to get sunset images. There are no big haystacks, but the rocks off the shore are interesting. The entire Oregon coast is public.
