Oregon, My Oregon:  Part One by Daron-Kel Oregon, My Oregon:  Part One by Daron-Kel
How do I represent the beauty of Oregon in words? I decided long ago that I can't. I have made it my goal now to provide you with a series of photos which explain why I love this west coast state. This is the first, it's taken off of Cape Foulweather, near Depoe Bay, Oregon. The buildings you see here are of the Inn at Otter Crest.

In good news, I can afford a Digital Rebel XT! I'm really looking forward to getting it, but I'm leaving on a backpacking trip to Montana in two days. When I get back, I shall get my camera.

For now, this shot was taken with an Olympus C765-UltraZoom. Thanks for the view!

what a wonderfull title, and picture...
I used to live in oregon, and one of the greatest places I have EVER been was Green peter...by Foster and Sweet Home. Green Peter is a beautifull camping area, and at the 11 mile marker is where there's this big hill you can go down, and the trees are right above the lake, and it's just so beautifull...i loved it. now I'm in california and I wish i could go back soon :(

Whoa. I've totally taken a picture from this same spot (though I'm sure many have)! I love Oregon. It's so much nicer than West Virginia, which is where I am now. Great picture!

It's a beautiful spot! I've never made it out to Virginia, but I hear you have some good scenery there too :)

Thanks for the comment, sorry for being so late to get back to you!

I discovered Oregon about 4 minutes ago, and I'm in love! I was looking for a state in which to move, and I think I found it! Boy, it's sooooo beautiful!

'Like a painted ship upon a painted ocean...'

Pops into my mind when I see ocean like that.

And now for the total tourist moment:

"Oh, wow! Look at the view!" :D

Lovely capture, although the 'inn' looks like a dingy eyesore. Marketing at it's most silly.

Strange to see golden cliffs; here, they're red.

Fantastic work. this would be great for a painting reference. Lots of wave action going on. Hope you enjoy that new camera!

Good scene combining large areas of color and some building detail. And I don't notice any of the pixelation that I do on some works with buidings at that distance on a digital camera.

Thank you! I was really satisfied with this one. The new camera should get here tomorrow (So the day after will be when it arrives most likely).

I try to avoid the pixelation however I can, because I don't like the look at all, I prefer the natural look of film honestly. A four megapixel camera like this one is good for getting rid of that pixelation, and the 8 megapixel camera I ordered should be even better.

The area around depoe bay is amazing. Have you ever been to fogerty (sp?) beach around there? It's an awesome to go. I'll be going to Newport for a week on sunday, (beverly beach) that place is amazing. :) Great shot btw, you do a great job of capturing deep colours. :thumbsup:

Nope, can't say I have. I'll have to look it up next time I'm in the area. Beverly beach is cool too, I really like the Otter Rock beach too, on the other side of Devil's punchbowl. Both visible in this shot :)

Hey, thanks a lot! The coast in Washington is quite impressive, not sure if it's all public land though. In Oregon, we get this large variety of beaches, from the sandy stuff, to these rocky cliffs that lead to sandy stuff.

Thank you! I suppose so, it is quite a sight, the whole state. We have everything here. It is quite often that the surfers on the beach here will leave if the waves aren't good, drive for an hour and a half, and snowboard.
