May 15 ~ Elk River, Port of Port Orford, Battle Rock

Tuesday, 05-15-2001 ~ Strong rain the last few days is slacking off to drizzle late this afternoon. We took Sunday off and drove up the Elk River to Butler Bar Park to have some fun with the dogs and try out our the new Mavica CD1000. Below are some pics from our afternoon visit.

Later in the day (about 6:00 PM) I took these photos at an overcast Paradise Point. The first picture is a look towards the Heads. Next is a view looking north towards the Cape Blanco Headland. Last is a zoomed view of the lighthouse and point (I caught the beacon just as it rotated my way).

One more look south at Agate Beach from Paradise Point then off to the Castaway Hotel to get some pics of some Port action.

I went to Ray's Market and when exiting noticed that the sun had appeared. I then drove back to the Port Visitor Viewpoint and took this last set of pics. A little sunshine caused dramatic differences in the views. These images were taken just an hour before the first viewpoint photos seen previously.

What do you think about the improved quality of these new Mavica CD1000 images? The photos above and over a hundred more were shot and stored on just one mini CD. These images were all full-sized 2.1 mega-pixel files too! Click here to see a full sized 1600x1200 version of the last image of Fort Point Beach and Orford Cove above. Soon we will offer full-sized Oregon Pics on CD like the two 2.1 mega-pixel images posted today.
