January 14, 2003 ~ Battle Rock Park and Beach: Today's weather was beautiful, sunny and warm with light wind, so I loaded up Jerry and took a drive out to Battle Rock Park. It had been awhile since we had visited one of our fantastic beaches so we were both pretty jazzed about it. The pic on the left is a view of Battle Rock Park.
We arrived at 2:00pm and took this first set of pics. Photos of Battle Rock beach can vary quite a bit depending on the time of day and direction of the sun. If you look close you will see big differences between this first set of images and the ones that you'll see later in the feature.
We walked down the beach a bit and took this next set of photos showing people enjoying our wonderful weather and scenery. The winter storms have exposed some large rock beds, a man spots for agates in the middle picture. The last image shows some people checking out a newly found agate in the sun.
We walked past the large stack seen in the middle image above and took this next set of images. The first photo is view towards Hubbards Beach with Humbug Mountain in the distance. I walked up the beach and zoomed in on some seagulls bathing in the Hubbards Creek outflow. The last shot is a view looking back towards Battle Rock Park. By summer most of the rocks seen strewn along the shoreline will be buried in sand.
Below are some of my favorite Jerry shots from the day. I had him pose on a large driftwood stump and besides Cabbage Rock to provide scale to the first two images.
Below are some reflection off the wet sand pics.
The sun was now a bit lower on the horizon, it gave the next group of photos an extra special quality.
This next set of photos were shot from the beach overlook. The final pic is historic Battle Rock. You can learn more about Battle Rock and Battle Rock Park by visiting my BattleRockPark.com site.
There are some great Elk pics in my previous feature that I shot at the Dean Creek Elk Viewing Area just east of Reedsport, click here to see!
I will try to post a new feature at least once a week so check back often.
