Ecola State Park, Oregon, pt 3

Indian Beach is the northern of two day-use access areas with nearby parking.  From the parking area, the access trail begins with a wooden staircase leading down to a path covered by a dense Salal shrub ‘tunnel’.  The tunnel ends with access to a transitional area of smooth lava rock and Sitka spruce driftwood, adjacent to the sandy beach.

The broad beach landscape offers a photographer so many wonderful subjects and composition opportunities. Facing the Pacific is Indian Point to the right, and Bald Point to the left. Indian Beach is also a popular spot for surfers and paddle-boarders. My Tamron 15mm – 30mm lens was used for the majority of these compositions.

The Sitka spruce driftwood and stream composition below, was one of my favorites from my visit to Indian Beach.
