North Oregon Coast Photography | Fort Clatsop

Front Of Fort Clatsop - Winter Stay For Lewis & Clark Expedition
Oregon has a beautiful coastline. No matter where you go on the coast, even inland, you are bound to find beauty.

A lot of Oregon's history is on the North Coast. This is because of the Lewis and Clark expedition. The mouth of the Columbia and the Pacific Ocean is where they ended up on their lengthy exploration from the east.

They stayed a winter in a place called Fort Clatsop, which is just south of Astoria and not to far from the Pacific. This winter retreat has been recreated to reflect on this monumental period in US history and I had the opportunity of photographing it.

Also, I had the opportunity of photographing parts of Astoria and Seaside., Oregon which will be featured in future posts.

All the photos are in High Dynamic Range Photography (HDR) which brings out all the detail in a scene. Please enjoy!
