One of the two bays formed from the headland of Cape Meares. The cape forms a high steep bluff on the south end of Tillamook Bay.

I use a circular polarizer 90% of the time, which enriched the ocean's colors. Yes, this is what it looked like, while wearing my polarized sunglasses......

Off again for a family visit in Idaho.

As always your views, comments, faves and support are appreciated.

We enjoyed a few lighthouses while on the central Oregon coast, this was my favorite.

"The Yaquina Head Lighthouse, also known early in its existence as the Cape Foulweather Lighthouse. It is located in Lincoln County, near the mouth of the Yaquina River near Newport. The tower stands 93 feet (28 m) tall, and is the tallest lighthouse in Oregon.
Made in Paris in 1868 and shipped to Oregon, Yaquina Head Light was first lit August 20, 1873, and automated in 1966. It is active with an identifying light characteristic of two seconds on, two seconds off, two seconds on, and 14 seconds off." Wikipedia

Thanks for lighting up my home with your wonderful comments, faves and support!

This handsome cow had this suitor twitterpated. He followed her for a long ways, till a bigger bull came along......Always interesting to watch bison during the rut when passions are high.

While the terms bison and buffalo are used interchangeably, in North America the scientific name is bison. Actually, it's Bison bison bison (genus: Bison, species: bison, subspecies: bison), but only saying it once is fine. Historians believe that the term "buffalo" grew from the French word for beef, "boeuf."

Enjoy a wonderful weekend!!

I believe that is Mt. Edith Cavell (please correct me if not so) rising prominently above the Athabasca River as viewed from Kerskelin Goat Lick on the Icefields Parkway. For mountain lovers in north america it is hard to top this scenic drive between Lake Louise and Jasper.

Your comments, faves and suggestions are appreciated!

Happy Friday!

Looking thru a slot in the rocks at a portion of iconic Peyto Lake. Just one of the many jewels along Alberta's stunning Icefields Parkway.

Enjoy a wonderful Wednesday!
