Beautiful blue curves along the Oregon Coast

This beautiful shot is along the North Oregon Coast I think but not sure. I'm less familiar with the areas north of Lincoln City than points south of Lincoln City, one of the coast's larger cities and a very popular vacation destination for folks heading to the coast from the Portland area.

Unlike California where many of the coastal cities are major metropolitan areas (San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego), Oregon has no large cities along its 363 miles of coastal highway 101, the asphalt thread that winds all the way from Astoria to Brookings. Instead, you'll find more than a dozen cities of moderate to small size, many with tourism as the mainstay of the economy although larger cities like Brookings, Gold Beach, Florence, Lincoln City, Newport, and Astoria all have identities that go far beyond their roots in tourism.
