Yaquina Head Lighthouse near Lincoln City, Oregon
Yaquina Head Lighthouse is in a very popular tourist area.
The lighthouse is popular and they were still lighting it when we were there even though like most lighthouses it has been decommissioned. GPS has eliminated the need for a lighthouse to let the ships know their position. Lincoln City and Newport to the South are Marine Science areas with major research facilities. Many of the sites are open to the public. The lighthouse sits out on a bare promontory so I did a night scene to make the painting more interesting.
