Breaking Bandon by erintoliephotography

It has been far too long since I have posted something online, much less had the time to photograph anything at all. The reason being, I recently bought a new RV and have decided to head south and explore my options. I’m currently taking some time in Bandon. It is so cool to just roll outta bed, grab my gear and 5 minutes later be down amongst the sea stacks here.

This is the first time I have photographed anything in over a month. It took me a bit to get back into the swing of things. Plus it was 31 degrees this morning and I had run outta propane (heat) the evening before. I was not looking to get wet so I took the safe route and perched up on some rocks. Anyways, it is so good to get back out there doing what I love to do most. Thanks for taking the time to check out my shot 🙂

Beyond by huskershoe


After observing the promising skies, I decided to go check out Mala Pier for sunset as it’s been on the list and left totally in awe of what just happened for a few brief moments. The most challenging thing about photographing a sunset here in Hawaii is catching it at it’s peak. Due to our location, the sunsets are very quick, vibrant, and colors can be very intense! There is literally a major difference in images spaced just 20 seconds apart, so catching that perfect moment at a spot is what it’s all about. This, is one of those moments……. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from Andrew Shoemaker Photography!

Waderless by eyeofalens

I had Waders with me on my trip in the spring to Oregon
& used them quite a bit.
I wished I had them on this day when venturing to Abiqua Falls, as there were some other comps I would have really loved to explore …guess ill have to return ! : )

Kaboom! by MarkMetternich

Post Processing Video Tutorials
Some of the most massive breakers in the world can be seen on the Oregon Coast (USA) when the conditions are just right. This one (taken several days ago) was about 200 feet (61 meters) high. To see it in person is simply astonishing.
 I left the two people on the cliff, in the photo, for scale.

If you are interested in a Mega Pacific Coast Tour simply refer to my website. I lead photography workshops year around all over the world, as my full time living.

Thank you very much for looking!

Pacific Tsunamic Fury by MarkMetternich

Post Processing Video Tutorials
Violent and extremely chaotic Tsunami-like storm surf pounds the Pacific Coastline on Oregon’s South coastline. An awesome welcome back for me.

The person wearing the yellow rain gear was left in for a sense of scale. He is standing at 100 feet high (over 30 meters). The image was taken just as surf was crashing over us from 100 feet below.

This is a single shot, with almost no processing aside from minor color corrections.

Thank you very much for looking and I hope you enjoy (or are scared by) the image. 🙂

Northwest Mountain by MCastro17

Last Summer, I was lucky enough to be able to spend a few days at Crater Lake national park, which is probably one of the most beautiful places on earth. This particular shot was taken early morning at sunrise. I will never forget the feeling when I went up on this mountain and looked down for the first time. It’s just one of those moments that you stop and think: that’s why I photograph. Because it takes me places like this; where I would probably never go otherwise.

Dragons Tail by eyeofalens

Dragons Tail (Bandon Oregon)
I shared another image of this location some time ago, but wanted to present an image in a darker manner & more towards the blue light & dusk colors that were evident.

You really should look a this in a dark room or the lights dimmed : )
