I've been looking at your portfolio, something I haven't been able to do lately--your work is so evocative of the season on the Oregon coast.

@Susan: Thank you. We are going back in early February to the same spot to celebrate our anniversary.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Beautiful capture here with the warm-colored horizon that stands out nicely against the cloudy sky. I love the mist/fog spotted in front of the hillside as well. So much churning of the waves has turned this water white.
