I need to one day when we are in Cannon Beach get to Ecola State Park either in the early morning or evening to catch a sunset. I also didn't get to Haystack Rock this trip.
I really wanted to try out the 500mm 1:4.5 Sigma lens with the 2x teleconverter on the birds at Haystack Rock.
My family has spent a week at Cannon Beach every summer since 2011. We stay at the Christian Conference Center for about 1700.00 which includes lodging for my wife, myself, youngest son, and two meals a day (breakfast and dinner).
