Umpqua River Light, Reedsport, Oregon
This light is located in the Umpqua River State Park just south of Reedsport, Oregon overlooking the Umpqua River. The current light was lit in 1894 when it replaced the original Umpqua River Light that was abandoned because of unstable ground in 1864. The light was changed to electric from oil in 1934. The light is still operational and automated. Top photo taken on a foggy morning in 2005. Other photos taken in June 2012.
Someone asked me, "What is it you love about lighthouses?'
I guess it is because seeking out lighthouses as a hobby combines so many things that I enjoy: travel, the sea, being outdoors, photography and history.
So, having a lighthouse blog, allows me to share my love of lighthouses with others. Each post will be about a different lighthouse that I have visited and have photographed over the years. I hope you enjoy. I have also started a bird blog for the birds I have photographed (August 1, 2013).
