Wave No.2. Looking off a bluff at the sun-glazed Pacific Ocean. Oceanside, Oregon, 2009.
Surging ocean to the shore,
Sea weather to the ridges.
Relentless against steadfast,
Such drama makes much to love.
Storm Window. I photographed several wonderful ocean scenes from our room’s balcony, and then photographed an approaching squall. As it neared, the direct sunlight through the raindrops became more and more exciting, but the windblown raindrops hit my lens faster than I point the camera and release the shutter. I retreated inside, set down the camera in defeat, and collapsed. Then I opened my eyes and looked at the window!. Three Arch Rocks, Oceanside, Oregon, 2009.
Approaching Squall. This is the squall that minutes later created my Storm Window photo. Three Arch Rocks, Oceanside, Oregon, 2009.
