[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Although I usually photograph mountains, I'm equally a fan of the coast. Here's a shot a took in Oregon back in 1980 at the start of a cross-country bike trip. (I cycled up the coast of Oregon, Washington, and Vacnouver Island, then turned inland through BC and Alberta, hopped a train from Medicine Hat to Winnipeg, then biked down through Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan.)

I think this was taken near Tillamook. But I'd be happy to correct it for those who know better.

Scanned from a 35mm negative. Some cloning, curve and color adjustments, and a sharpen.

Looks familiar to me. I'm fairly certain that it was taken from a highway overlook down near Brookings on the south Oregon coast and not around Tillamook.

Nice shot. It looks a little faded to me. I also have lots of film negs and prints that I may try to scan and bring back to life. I played a little with yours in workshop just for fun.
