The Cape Arago Lighthouse sits at the mouth of Coos Bay, Oregon. Public access is closed and there aren't a lot of good viewpoints other than out on the water so distant views with a long lens in good weather is your best bet. The sand dunes visible in the distance are characteristic of the Oregon coastline extending almost continuously up to Florence. From Cape Arago south is a more rugged shoreline that is quite different that consists of much older geologic formations predating those to the north of here. C&C always welcome. Edit - adding an additional view of the Lighthouse. I hiked out on a small peninsula on the north side of Sunset Bay one day just to see what was there. Not really any established paths but I made my way out to a clearing with a view to the lighthouse up close. There used to be a footbridge where the cement piers stand down near the water. Turned out I came in through an unfenced part of what is now a restricted area and right after I shot this found signs on a 10 foot chain link fence with barbed wire saying something to the effect that trespassers would be violated. And I was on the wrong side of that fence. I ducked back into the woods and retraced my path back to the campground. I did not have my DSLR with me - this was shot with an iPhone 6.
