Oregon Coast North 2017 — photo 56 of 60: Looking south through Maxwell Point Tunnel, just north of Oceanside, about six miles west of Tillamook and a couple of miles south of Cape Meares Lighthouse, on Oregon’s North Coast. The beach on the other side of Maxwell Point is Oceanside Beach.
The side from which I took this photo is Tunnel Beach. In recent years some have been calling it Star Trek Beach. Well, to me the south entrance does look a lot like a portal, especially with the orange glow. Because I love the coast and I love Star Trek, this beach is where I want my ashes scattered. Of course, a pricey space burial would be really out of this world! January 2017.
Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
