Oregon Dunes

Dunes Overlook

 

The Oregon Dunes Overlook is a “view point” and a trail head for hikers that is about 11 miles north of Reedsport off of 101.   Be sure to get a Day Pass to park.  There are two viewing platforms.  But I recommend walking out onto the dunes. I took this shot looking back at the tree line and platform.  The big bonus here is that there are no ATVs.  Thus, an opportunity to consider another wonder of His creation.

Here’s another photo from the Oregon Dunes near Florence captured in the wee hours of the morning.

I love the warm glow of the morning sun filtering across the soft shapes of the dunes …. An “Alter Moment” reminding me of the song “Here comes the Sun.”

This photo was taken in Florence, Oregon with the low morning light revealing the soft wind-swept curves of the dunes.   This is my first image from the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, a 40 mile stretch along the Oregon Coast from the Coos River in North Bend to the Siuslaw River in Florence.
