When you are lost at sea and suddenly a beacon of light from a lighthouse cuts through the fog, you know that you are on the edge of somewhere.

I shot this photo of the Yaquina Lighthouse along the Oregon coast while on a school field trip with my daughter. In a small cove to the left of this frame, a California gray whale floated protectively with her calf as a pod of orcas cruised the larger bay.

I always appreciate your comment, votes and support!
