Valentine's Weekend On The Oregon Coast

Weekend before last, my wife Kalebra and I snuck off for a Valentine’s Day getaway to meet our friends Moose & Sharon Peterson on the Oregon Coast. I did a post about the trip over at with some images from the trip, and the story behind them, along with my story of shooting the famous “Thor’s Well” which was, wellâ¦it was swell. Get it? Swell? Ah, forget it.

Anyway, if you’ve got a second, here’s the link. 

Hope you guys have a great Monday!



P.S. I posted #10 in my series called “10 Things I Would Tell New Lightroom User” over at

  1. Hi Scott: You are as funny as ever… I just read through 95% of your Valentine’s Day adventures. You needed boots to take pictures there ;) GORGEOUS!
    – It was so fun reading through your adventures, I was sitting here admiring the scenery and laughing at your commentary! A nice way to end the day for me, with a smile on my face… THANK YOU for that Mr. Kelby! ;) ~Roz Fruchtman

  2. Scott, thanks for sharing your Valentine’s Day sojourn with us. Great pictures, and some good laughs, although they were at your expense. Always bring a second pair of shoes! LOL You’ve got a few spelling mistakes in the descriptions, though. ;-)

    My wife and I took a vacation to Mexico a couple of weeks ago, and I picked up that Tamron 28-300 lens for my D800 before the trip on your recommendation. What a great travel lens! Very versatile and not too big (unless fully extended), and I had no complaints about soft pictures. Thanks again!


  3. I have spent several Photo Safaris with Moose. His way of teaching and his always being down-to-Earth is excellent. I love spending time learning from the both of you! Great shots Scott!!

  4. Sounds like a great weekend, Scott. Another of my bucket list places. Just wanted to check on the lens you used – Tamron 3.5 – 5.6. Is that correct? Down here it seems they only have the 3.5 – 6.3. Am I missing something? I know you always seem to take that lens with you when you head off on your travels and its time I looked into getting something more practical than the camera store I carry around with me when I head away. Best wishes, Peter
