- Description: I was driving home from Newport, Oregon to my home in Florence when this sunset appeared out of the winter sky just as I was passing the lighthouse. I parked at the north end of the bridge and walked across it until I found the perfect angle to catch the sunset and the lighthouse. Right place and right time!
