Yaquina Head Lighthouse on the Oregon Coast is a wonderful place to visit and photograph. On the day that I was there, the weather was beautiful and windy. There were seals and birds on the rocks below, wildflowers were everywhere and people were waiting to get the tour. I didn't take the tour but went inside to the museum and watched a video on the history of this beautiful lighthouse.
Yaquina Head Lighthouse is located off of highway 101 at Agate Beach, 3 miles North of Newport, Oregon
I changed the plain blue sky background to another that I also photographed later in my trip to the coast.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
