The last lighthouse built in Oregon, and the smallest, the Coquille River Light sits on the North Jetty alongside the Coquille River at Bandon-by-the-Sea, Oregon (2010 population 3,066). While Congress appropriated the funds for this station in 1891, the structure itself was not completed until 1896. The Coquille River Light served navigators for 43 years, but was extinguished in 1939, replaced by an automated beacon. Now a part of Bullards Beach State Park, the Lighthouse has been fully restored and fitted with a solar-powered beam.

Taken December 19th, 2006 in Bandon, Oregon, USA.

Nikon D80 dslr, Sigma 55-200 mm tele/zoom lens set at 200 mm. ISO 250, f /5.6, 1/500th second. Shot as a JPG. Refinished in Lightroom Classic and Photoshop CC 2020.
