Photographers


Kinsale Door, Ireland by Richard Newman.

 

I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and now live in Beaverton and Gearhart, Oregon. As a kid growing up, I always loved the photographs in Life magazine. These pictures reached out from all parts of the world and showed both the beauty in landscapes as well as the reality of life.

In high school and college, I was a photographer for my news-paper and yearbook. In my senior year of high school, I was the Assistant Photographer for the City of Cleveland and learned the fine art of photography and darkroom applications.

I especially like to take pictures of landscapes, nature, sports and historical objects. I am fascinated in the various textures that nature has provided, allowing me to bring these objects to print.

“Photography is not a job for me; it is a passion for capturing memories.”

I have traveled to Europe 9 times and visited 29 countries, which has given me the settings for some of my best photo-graphs. In addition, I travel the entire West taking pictures allowing me to enjoy the outside and nature. Once photo-graphed, all of my post work is done on my computer in Beaver-ton.

At the Trail’s End Art Association annual show, I received the Best of Show Award for my photograph on aluminum. Recently my photographs were sold to ABC television and used on the Criminal Minds TV show.  –Richard L. Newman

January 18, 2018.

Tillamook Rock Lighthouse encounters the Pacific Ocean, the largest ocean in the world, during unusually high seas at

12: o’clock, high noon.

Seaside, Oregon.

 Neal Maine, photographer, biologist, retired educator, shares the back story perspective:

The Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, at 133′ high,  encounters a wave, calculated  at 196′ high, during a winter storm on January 20, 2018.

Neal Maine captured the photograph from Ecola Point,  approx. one  and 1/2 miles  away.

 

Ecola Point, elevation 190 feet, is part of Ecola State Park, which extends north over Tillamook Head, south of Seaside and north of Cannon Beach in Oregon. William Clark, one of the leaders of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, applied the name “Ekoli” to what is now Ecola Creek. “Ehkoli” is a Chinook Native American word for whale.

 

 

 

Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, Seaside, Oregon, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

 

 

 

One mile west of Tillamook Head, a headland located between Seaside and Cannon Beach, Oregon,  Tillamook Rock Lighthouse rises from the ocean.

An intriguing and powerful testament of the will and determination of the human spirit, the story of Tillamook Rock Lighthouse began in 1878 when Congress appropriated funds for a lighthouse to mark this section of the Oregon Coast. Originally, it was hoped that a lighthouse could be built at Tillamook Head, a 1,000-foot-high headland twenty miles south of the Columbia River, however, the top of the headland was often shrouded in fog, and as its sheer face offered no acceptable alternative, Tillamook Rock was considered instead.

The Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, “Terrible Tilly,” shone her light for seventy-seven years before being replaced by a red whistle buoy, anchored one mile seaward of the rock.

On September 1, 1957, Keeper Oswald Allick, who had served twenty years at the station, turned off the light, and penned the following final entry in the logbook, which today is on display at the Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria, Oregon:

“Farewell, Tillamook Rock Light Station. An era has ended. With this final entry, and not without sentiment, I return thee to the elements. You, one of the most notorious and yet fascinating of the sea-swept sentinels in the world; long the friend of the tempest-tossed mariner. Through howling gale, thick fog and driving rain your beacon has been a star of hope and your foghorn a voice of encouragement. May the elements of nature be kind to you. For 77 years you have beamed your light across desolate acres of ocean. Keepers have come and gone; men lived and died; but you were faithful to the end. May your sunset years be good years. Your purpose is now only a symbol, but the lives you have saved and the service you have rendered are worthy of the highest respect. A protector of life and property to all, may old-timers, newcomers and travelers along the way pause from the shore in memory of your humanitarian role.” 

High Surf Advisory- National Weather Service Watch Warning

U.S. Dept. of Commerce NOAA National Weather Service/ Seaside braced itself Thursday, Jan. 18, as the National Weather Service warned of dangerous high surf through the day.

 

“In cycles older than time, forces deep within the earth push apart tectonic plates, creating and expanding the oceans whose waters are pushed and pulled by the sun and moon, cooled and heated and calmed and stirred to fury by the skies. Ocean collides with continent, shattering the shore into a thousand facets: bare rock monoliths, vast expanses of sand, saltwater pools that drown, then drain, then drown, then drain.” –Neal Maine

Found in a coastal scrub nest box placed  for local wood ducks, a saw-whet owl, flew out to land on  a branch, where it watched the birders doing the nest box housekeeping, then flew back into the box, with a nod and a  howdy do hoot. Saw-whets winter in dense forests along the coast range.

About the Northern Saw-whet Owl:

 

Birders who prowl through conifer groves in winter sometimes find this round-headed little gnome perched there, sitting still as if to avoid notice. Avoiding notice is a task at which this owl often succeeds; it is overlooked in many places where it occurs. Late at night, males give a rhythmic tooting song that may go on for hours with scarcely a break. The bird was named for this song, which reminded settlers of the sound of a whetstone sharpening a saw.

Nesting

Early in breeding season, male sings incessantly at night to defend territory and attract a mate. Nest site is in cavity in tree, usually 15-60′ above ground. Mostly use abandoned woodpeckers holes. Will also use artificial nest boxes. Apparently will not use same site two years in a row.

Length 7.1–8.3 in
Wingspan 16.5–18.9 in

Weight 2.3–5.3 oz

Special order.

After a thirty-year career as an award-winning biology teacher at Seaside High School, Neal Maine became the first executive director of North Coast Land Conservancy, which he co-founded in 1986. Since his retirement from the land trust in 2010, he has pursued his passion for nature photography through PacificLight Images, a partnership with Michael Wing, dedicated to raising awareness of coastal ecology and the wildlife with whom we share the region’s estuaries, freshwater wetlands and forests. Their photography centers around coastal and Columbia River landscape, ecology and the rich estuary habitat with the surrounding wetlands and forest systems.

Neal focuses his imagery on exploring wildlife in the context of its habitat, while Michael’s specialty is capturing action images that illustrates the dynamic nature of coastal wildlife. PacificLight Images is dedicated to working with coastal communities to protect wildlife habitat and its connectivity. A percentage of all photography sales are donated to North Coast Land Conservancy to help further this goal.

THE NEXT FRONTIER, OUR OWN BACKYARD

Humans: We take pictures, walks, deep breaths, memories, rides on waves, water, timber, in habitat that used to belong to other trail makers. We thought we could never catch all the salmon, never cut all the big trees, and never pollute the ocean. In our hubris, we thought we could make our own trails. With renewed humility, we are learning how to share this place, to live together with our partner trail makers. PacificLight Images celebrates this partnership as we use our images to inspire others to honor nature’s trails in OUR OWN BACKYARD.

Artists represent the heartbeat of the Fairweather Gallery.  What we strive to put out in the arts community is  the artist’s conversations.  We have been fortunate to experience the sharing and giving of many, many creative minds  for over 11 years.

 

So, for us,  in 2018, the opportunity to continue to present an arts platform forward  is all about shining a bright light on the reminder that we are all connected… artists, patrons and community.
