Although Bandon is on the Oregon Coast along scenic Highway 1, I headed there from Crater Lake National Park, a few hours to the east, when the SkyFire sunset forecast in the iPhone app The Photographers Ephemeris told me that there was likely to be a nice sunset on the coast.
i/100th second at f/16, ISO 200, 29mm captured on a Canon EOS 5D Mark III with EF 16-35mm lens. Five exposures were captured one stop apart, adjusted in Adobe Lightroom, and combined in Photomatix HDR software.
