(Copyright Mel Steinhauer all rights reserved) On the Oregon Central Coast, near the mouth of the Yaquina River, you will find Oregon's tallest lighthouse. At 93 feet high on top of a narrow point of land, the light can be seen 20 miles away. It is also one of the most popular lighthouses in the United States with over 400,000 visitors each year. The lantern was first lit in 1873 and then the light-keepers were replaced when it was automated in 1966. But the original Fresnel lens is still being illuminated and ships at sea are still being guided by the beacon from the ... Yaquina Head Light.
I created this image from my original photograph taken on location by adding digital enhancements, textures or other effects. These effects and image details will become more visible by clicking inside the green magnifier square as the cursor is placed over the image.
PLEASE NOTE: Our professional printing facilities have a feature for customers who desire artwork prepared for them to be in standard sizes such as 8 x 10, 11 x 14, 16 x 20, 24 x 30, 36 x 24 and so on. When you select your image to purchase, from the SIZE tab choose a VERTICAL, HORIZONTAL or SQUARE format. Notice that some portions of my original image may not be included in these cropped formats. The NATURAL format is the way I composed the image in camera or during final processing. Sometimes this would create an image size which required the use of non-standard mats or frames. So go ahead and see for yourself, by viewing my images in these new formats to decide which one may (or may not) best suit your needs or style of wall art. Of course, you may always choose the NATURAL format and purchase my art as it was originally composed and created.
Many thanks and best wishes!
