Photographer's Note

As best as I remember this is Bray Point along the Oregon coastline. I usually took a picture of the park or beach sign as I came or went but I didnt do it here so I had to think real hard where exactly I was. In this one we are looking north. What's noteworthy here is that the black lava rock on the beach in the extreme foreground is some remnants of the Columbia River basalts that flowed much like they do in Hawaii and cooled off when they hit the Pacific Ocean. This happened about 14 million years ago. I will be posting several with the basalts in them and this is just the first. I kept sharpness very minimal since it didn't seem appropriate to run it very high here. I did enter the coordinates of what I think my POV would have been. Taken around midday.

For everyone following my ISO follies from the last shot I was back to normal (400) which was the first thing I photographed after leaving Heceta Head Lighthouse.
