Coastal Buildings

Most of these shots were taken at a Little Town called Depoe Bay, on the Oregon Coast. Every time I go there its Extremely Busy!!

Known as the “whale watching capital of the Oregon Coast”, Depoe Bay seems to draw whales to its horizon like clockwork every March through December. The town anticipates those migrations, with a Whale Watch Center, shore observation decks, and charter boats for an up-close view. Depoe Bay’s harbor is noteworthy for being the smallest natural navigable harbor in the world. During storms and turbulent seas, the area’s distinctive geological features result in a phenomena called a “spouting horn” where, much like a whale, the sea itself spouts a massive spray of water into the air above Main Street.

June thru September is Migrating Season for that area so I will try to go back during that time to see about shooting a whale :-)
