Chris and Inga’s Trip to Cannon Beach

Chris at Cannon Beach

With the weather getting warmer, and two of Inga’s daughters in town to visit, we headed to Cannon Beach. Cannon Beach is roughly 1 hour and 15 minutes from our place. Inga likes to come to this beach because she likes to get close to Haystack Rock.

Testing Out Wide Angle Lens

While we were at Cannon Beach, I wanted to test out my recently acquired wide-angle lens. I purchased the Olympus M.Zuiko 9mm F8.0 Fisheye Body Cap Lens off of amazon for under $100. The lens is made to fit on Olympus mirrorless micro 4/3 cameras.

Inga Photographing Haystack Rock

While I was testing out the wide-angle lens, Inga’s daughter Savannah grabbed my other camera. She was able to grab some great shots, including this one of her mom taking a photo of Haystack Rock.

Lighthouse Near Canon Beach

Here are a few more photographs that were taken by Savannah. The lighthouse was pretty far away from where we were, but the telephoto lens can bring you closer to the action.

Footprints in the Sand

Some footprints in the sand that lead towards Haystack Rock. The tide was starting to come in and surround Haystack Rock.

The Girls @ Canon Beach

Inga and her daughters enjoying the Oregon coast. Although their visit was brief, it was great to see them all together having a good time.

One more image of Haystack Rock after the tide started to come in. The sun was about to set and they didn’t want to miss it, so we started to head back up the beach to find a log to sit on and watch. A good opportunity to have a snack before heading back towards Portland.

The Sun setting behind the Pacific Ocean on the Oregon Coast. What a great day! Thank you for reading everyone. Until next time, take care.
