Another striking scene observed from the other side of the Cape Meares State Scenic Viewpoint.

A must-see when driving the Three Capes Scenic route, Cape Meares State Scenic Viewpoint is situated on a headland over 200 feet above the ocean. Cape Lookout and Cape Kiwanda are the other two capes on this route.

The cape is named for the 18th century British naval officer, trader and explorer John Meares.

Happy Friday! Enjoy a wonderful weekend!

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!

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!

Some fellow photographers are set up on this popular bridge catching some of this lovely sunrise. The bridge provides easy and safe crossing to the island, which has many picnic areas and wonderful views of Pyramid Mountain. A special place indeed.
Another view in comments.

I'm going to be out and about for a bit. Time to load up some memory cards.

As always thanks for taking a look. Always appreciated!
