Sunset at Salt Point State Park along the Sonoma Coast
Moody Spring Sunset, Cape Arago
Moody spring sunset at Cape Arago on the Oregon Coast near Coos Bay.
Thor's Well 2
I made 5 different trips to Thor's Well before I captured this image. Planning for this image included watching for a moderate tide, about a 5-foot swell and less than 10 knots of wind. I was also looking for a minor amount of cloud cover to add color to the sky. Something always kept me from capturing a keeper image previously. Now, I have an image that I am happy with.
Beverly Beach Sunset
Winter sunset at Beverly Beach, near Newport, Oregon. The surf was rolling in, and the clouds parted for the perfect sunset photograph. After sunset we walked back to the campground and enjoyed smore's around the campfire.

Waves After Sunset
Long exposure image captured after sunset along the Sonoma Coast, California
Before sunrise on Oceanside Beach, Oregon. I had the beach to myself when I captured this image, looking south toward Cape Lookout.
This picture of the beach at sunrise was taken at Oceanside, Oregon. It was taken on an early July morning. You can access this section of beach by crossing the headland at low tide or going through the tunnel. Make sure your headlamp batteries are in good condition before hand, it is really dark in the tunnel.
Conditions at Thor's Well were not quite right for the typical hole in the ocean image. The incoming swell was a little too high and the tide a little too low. However, it was a good thing I had my raincoat and a raincoat for the camera.
Waves crash upon the basalt rock formations south of Cape Perpetua. The north wind was blowing, so I am glad I had a rain coat for me and the camera, while I captured this image.
Bandon Beach Sunrise
October sunrise at Bandon Beach, Oregon. This morning the sky and clouds reflected on the wet sand with pretty pastel colors.
Image captured in late afternoon, south of Yachats, Oregon. Watching the Pacific ocean crash on the shoreline as the sun sinks lower in the sky.

This image was taken in late afternoon at Heceta Head. The cliff drops about 200 feet to the ocean here, so it is advisable to stay back from the edge.
This image captured the setting sun at Cape Kiwanda. The ocean was very calm on this day as there was very little wind or swell.
Sunset reflection at the ocean, Hobuck Beach, Makah Indian Reservation, Washington

This image was captured in March 2018. We had just setup camp at Hobuck Beach Resort near Neah Bay, WA. I noticed the color in the sky was changing and walked 100 yards to the beach for this photograph. Cooking dinner can wait until after dark when the sunset looks like this.
