Night & Day Face of Coquille


The Coquille River Lighthouse is a favorite haunt of mine. If you watched my B&W Landscape Kelby class, you know I’m here, a lot! So no surprise that since we’re in the neighborhood for our K&M OR Adventure, we’d stop by, for sunset and than sunrise. Just like any landscape, this one varies every time you visit it with the weather driving everything. In this case, the other variable which is removed from the equation if that places you can stand to shoot. Between the river to the south and the town to the southeast, you really have limited options. Of those options, this view is the one I come back to most of the time. On this trip, I shot from the both sunset and sunrise from the same spot but with totally different intent.


Shooting the D4s / 18-35AFS, the top image was processed in ACR and the bottom image, shot with the Big Stopper, was processed additionally with Silver Efex Pro. And I know that next time in the neighborhood, I’ll stop again and shoot the lighthouse. It’s just simple, fun!
