I had a break from teaching and spent some of it in my most favorite place on earth - the Oregon Coast. I mention it over and over here on the blog, my love for the beach is something that has become a part of who I am. If I could spend every day on the beach I would. Instead I soak up all of it I can get whenever I am lucky enough to be there. I was editing photos on Sunday while watching Super Soul Sunday on OWN. Oprah was interviewing Nate Berkus about his experiences with the tsunami in Thailand. At the end, he mentioned that the beach is still his sacred space even with his experiences. The beach and ocean are my sacred spaces as well. The photo below was taken from an overlook on Highway 101 looking at the Heceta Head Lighthouse. I can hear the waves crashing as I look at this photo and remember the feeling of being there. I could not agree more with the quote below...I really do find myself again and again when I go to the ocean. Where is your sacred space?

Settings: ISO 800, 100mm, ss1/5000, f/7.1

  5. I have many shots of that same lighthouse - we used to drive up and down the coast to visit my cousins in Newport. Now we are in Bellingham, Wa and don't get down that way anymore - but I love my photos of the lighthouse. They say it is the most photographed lighthouse on the coast.
