Nye Beach Architecture, Surreal Sunset
Virtual Tour of Newport, Oregon Coast

Take some time to walk this insanely delightful collection of tiny streets overlooking the beach and you'll find gems all over - or moments that are gems in themselves. Here, the arch above Nye Beach joins other objects in this particularly intense sunset to create a mystical, almost Stonehenge-like vibe.

This shot was taken on a hot day in October, 2004 - further proof of the area's notorious (and glorious) Second Summer, which happens in the fall.
