Panoramas 2017 — photo 2 of 35: A 31-photo, 200-degree panorama taken from the observation deck of the historic (built 1926) 125-foot Astoria Column, the highest point in Astoria, Oregon. The left side of the image is looking west-southwest, and the right side is looking east. At the proper locations I have marked the cardinal directions west, north and east at the top of the image to help you keep your bearings.
I have also labeled major natural and man-made landmarks, and made them clickable so you can read all the details about each one. Not only can you see numerous local landmarks, but also the 14,411-foot Mount Rainier, 110 miles to the east-northeast, as well as the 8,201-foot Goat Rocks nearly 120 miles to the east by north.
Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens. Scroll to the right to see the rest of this panoramic photo.
