    "After Cape Disapointment Lightstation was established in 1856 to mark the entrance to the Columbia River, mariners approaching the river from the north complained they could not see the light until they had nearly reached the river. Their cry for an additional lighthouse was supported by the many shipwrecks, which occurred along the Long Beach Peninsula, just north of the cape.

    Construction of North Head Lighthouse began in 1896. The tower is brick masonry with a cement plaster overlay built on a sandstone foundation. Since the light is only two miles north of Cape Disappointment, North Head needed a distinct signature. North Head shone a fixed white light, while Cape Disappointment alternated red and white flashes.

    North Head is one of the windiest places in the United States. On January 29, 1921, winds were clocked at 126 mph before the instrument blew away. They have frequently been measured at over 100 mph." (Text from Lighthousefriends.com)
    I think this one is a favorite already. Nice picture. The wind explains the absence of tall trees and a flag pole.

    Hey, I've been there! Have a picture of me in front of it. Not nearly as good as yours, though!

    You're too kind. If there is anything special about the photo it's down to the fact that I was inspired by the scenery and the company I was in! Good recipe for a photo session I reckon! But thanks again!

    George-

    I dropped by this home today, thinking you might be there, but unfortunately you were not home. Pentax 1stDS ISO 1600 F 13.9 at 1/1500th. I used a high ISO because I was using a new Sigma 28-300mm lens and I wanted a high shutter speed and small aperature. This is not the greatest lens, but it is reasonable and I will need a long zoom for our China trip which begins tomorrow. We will be back around June 20th.

    Thanks Sarah,

    I'll take that house! Any additional info on that lens? Where are you going in China? I'll probably be going (business) again in September.

    Have a great trip.

    Hi George-

    It is the usual drill: Beijing, Shanghai, Xian, and 8 days on the Yangtze on a cruise, 21 day in all. It should be fun and it will be the first time we have been booked on a land/river cruise. We leave tomorrow and will be back around 6/20.

    George, this actually a private residence. The guy just loved lighthouses. That is why I call it "George's House."

    Take care, and I will log on again around 6/20.
