Heceta Head Lighthouse - you would think with the vast amounts of shoreline along the Oregon coast you would be able to find tons of great lighthouses to photograph. I have not found that to be the case, but luckily there is Heceta Head Lighthouse. This is a nice location with easy access and multiple ways to shoot.
Heceta Head Lighthouse is a working lighthouse (it beams 21 miles out to sea) and is the brightest light on the Oregon coast. It is said to be the most photographed lighthouse in the United States. I have seen good shoots from behind the lighthouse, down on the beach, but my favorite spot is from the highway north of the bridge. There are also lots of good times to shoot this classic lighthouse: fogged in, the middle of the day, sunset, or just before dusk when the light is visible.
