There is always a way and always hope in the next sunrise, and in the next second, and in the next minute.
~ Ziggy Marle
Steve and I spent three nights in our trusty trailer this week exploring the Central Oregon Coast. Fog settled in each evening over the horizon so we focused on eating great dinners at night and getting up each morning for a sunrise. And the skies did not disappoint. The colors were brief but beautiful and we had to make haste in order to capture the fleeting beauty. Working quickly was a challenge since we had to traverse some pretty serious jagged rock areas. But for us, that is part of the fun. Exploring and discovering unique pockets of sea life and lagoon-like pools of aqua blue adds greatly to the adventure of photography. Iconic shots are splendid and fun but finding my own unique compositions is a creative challenge that I cherish.
The Oregon Coast is dripping with sea life and I spent one morning dazzled by the richness of tide pools. The sea stars and sea anemones drew me in and I spent hours just watching waves crash over the colorful wildlife. I created intimate landscapes using the sea stars as my subject du jour and had to finally drag myself away as our time began to run short.
A heavenly end to our summer.
Take care out there and be safe. ~ Susan
