Notice: Before I start this feature I need to explain why there are now some iLoveOregon.com stampings on some of my Oregon pics. During these last 3 years I have freely posted images for my visitors to use as screen savers, wallpapers, or just for the enjoyment of their beauty. Unfortunately I have been finding my pictures posted on other websites without accreditation. I have been reluctant to brand my pics because I think the text is distracting, but I also take pride in my photography and feel it is unfair for people to display them on web pages like they were theirs. The sad thing is that I would have allowed others to post my images if only they had asked, all I would have insisted was that the photos were branded before republication.
February 26, 2003 ~ Hubbards Creek Beach: On Monday Jerry and I drove out to Hubbards Creek Beach to enjoy the sunshine and large surf. I planned the trip so we would arrive right at low tide, the low tide allowed me to find a few agates intermixed in the beach stones that lined the shoreline (first pic below). The middle image shows Monkey Rock and part of the Port of Port Orford in the background. The last picture is a wide angle view looking north towards Battle Rock Park.
Hubbards Creek Beach is a popular spot for surfing. The photo on the left shows a surfer working a nice wave. Above is a great pic I took of a wave curling.
Note to surfers, wave and weather watchers,
satellite image lovers: I revamped and improved my
Oregon Coast Weather, Tides, and
Satellite Images page... I now have a full north to south tide list for the
Oregon Coast, coastal waters wave and wind forecasts, weather links to Oregon
cities and all countries, and a 'right now' 2km satellite image with links to
many popular Pacific Coast satellite images.
We stopped in front of a small seastack and took the set of pictures below.
We walked up to my favorite Hubbards Creek Beach location where I laid out a towel and read a good book while soaking in some sun and enjoying the sounds of the surf. I would grab my camera when a good set of waves would roll in, below are a few of the images I captured.
Below are views from my special beach spot.
We stopped at Battle Rock Park and shot this next set of pics. The middle photo shows Hubbards Creek Beach as seen from Battle Rock Park. Historic Battle Rock is seen in the last image.
Jerry and I took a low tide walk on Battle Rock Beach last night (Thursday Feb. 27), while there we shot dozens of spectacular pics and movies, below is a small sample of what is to come!
