“Yaquina Head Lighthouse at Sunset, Newport.” by Jeffrey A. Green

Jeffrey's description

I captured this sunset image of Yaquina Head Lighthouse on June 24, 2012, using a Canon 5DMkII, Canon 24-105L at 105mm, and tripod. I’ve found Oregon's coastline to be a rich source of both natural and man-made photographic subjects that constantly change with the weather and season.


I was born in Eugene, enlisted in the U.S. Navy for four years, and then returned to Eugene to attend Lane Community College and the University of Oregon, graduating in 2003 with a degree in geology. I currently work full-time serving the people of Oregon as a compliance officer for the Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration.


Since 1999, I’ve been an active member in the local photography club Emerald Photographic Society, gaining skills and becoming inspired by other club members.
