I have been photographing Oregon since 2001. I mainly do landscapes. They seem to be much easier to work with :) I am drawn to the outdoors because I feel most at peace in nature. I would love to do a book someday. Maybe with a focus on the environment. I believe nature photographers get a front row seat to observe climate change and its tangeable effects on the land. With their cameras ready to record the proof. I feel a need at this time to preserve the land through my photos. Check out my Personel Gallery at http://www.sacred-earth-studios.com

bacsaáron, karlonikola,

Thank you both for the greetings and the compliments..



Thank you! Yosemite is a wonderful places.



Yes its a very wild and scenic place. It's exposed headlands are eroding at an alarming rate and in the past 7 years the edges have become more brittle.

I have watched the place erode drasticly over the years. The edge that faces Pacific City has lost large sections. The hard ground on the left side of the fience at the saddle between the dune and headland used to be covered in sand and grass. Most of it was wiped out by waves crashing over it in heavy winter storms in 2003.

Lastly the farthest portion is being slowly cut away the cliff side trail which had some stability is now crumbling away. Soon the headland will become an island. I give it another 20 years.

There used to be a sign there that stated you should be aware that Cape Kiwanda can be a very dangerous. You are on your own and that help may or may not arrive.

Now you dont even know about the dangers until you have hit the saddle between the dune and headland. There is a sign there.

Many people have lost their lives at Cape Kiwanda. From falling to digging sand caves and having it collapse on them.

I am sorry for your loss. A tragic end to someone so young..


Ομορφη !
