Sea Stacks at Low Tide



Bandon Beach is located along the Oregon coastline and is famous among photographers. The sea stacks, which are monolithic rock pillars, have witnessed eons of tides, storms, and whispered secrets. The Nah-So-Mah Tribe, whose ancestors inhabited this land, weaves a legend around these formations. According to their story, Princess Ewanua and Chief Siskiyou once roamed these shores. Their presence lingers—their spirits entwined with the sea stacks. Face Rock, an iconic sentinel, is a stone visage gazing out to sea, her features shaped by time and tide. She embodies strength and vulnerability, a silent witness to the ebb and flow of existence.

Photographers flock to Bandon Beach because it is a perfect place to capture beautiful shots. When the ocean retreats at low tide, the sea stacks emerge, creating a dramatic scene. Their colossal size defies our human scale. The interplay of light and shadow becomes a visual hymn. The sea stacks are patient sages, whispering tales of resilience, of survival against the relentless waves. And with the click of the shutter, we become part of their story.

Owning a print of Bandon Beach is an invitation to stand on that shore, feel the salt spray, and hear the gulls’ cries. Hang it in your home, and you invite the raw power of the Pacific—the ancient dance of rock and water. Friends will ask, “Where was this taken?” And you’ll share the magic—the way the sea stacks defy time, the way they anchor your spirit. But beyond aesthetics, this image becomes your sanctuary. When life feels tumultuous, when you yearn for solace, you’ll gaze at the sea stacks. Their significance will ground you—the reminder that even against relentless tides, beauty endures. You’ll trace the contours with your eyes, and suddenly, you’re there—salt-kissed, wind-whipped, alive.
