Our trip is so incredible that I am changing all of the photographs for the next few days. It was pouring rain with gale force winds when we got to Bandon, OR. This shot was taken right in front of our motel room. The distant rock on the left is called Face Rock. (Caveat: processing on a lap top does not always result in accurate colors.)

VACATION - We will be gone from April 26 - May 5. Internet access will be limited. I have posted photographs for while we are away.

A beautiful soft foreground then quite rough it's an amazing but very beautiful landscape ! Great composition ! (I think that the horizon tilts little but with this sea it is not surprising !)

@Mhelene: Thank you. I fixed the horizon; glad that you picked up on it.

Ah, the beauty of the Pacific NW. The foggy ocean is perfect.
Good title to describe all the protruding rocks.
And then the plants and stairs warm it all up.

A trip to the sea is always a dream! A sublime landscape and mysterious Jack! A remote and wild place!
Only man-shaped wooden walkways that lead us to the beach remind us that this is an area already discovered! An incredible beauty ... thanks for teaching here friend! Muchos besos, Adela

Oh dear, I WANT TO BE THERE NOW! :-) I can even smell the salty water and the fresh air, and I can really feel the spray on my skin. Having an ice-cream and then through of clothes and run into the water, feel the elemental forces an getting one with nature... Superb shot, Jack :-) Just superb!!

I keep coming back to this shot, today, Jack. I can't get over how much I like this shot. How did you get so much light to show through from the distance through the rain?

29 Apr 2010 3:24am

@LauraS: I don't know. Light does strange (and wonderful) things.

Jaap from Friesland, Netherlands
