A rare place on earth, where some of America's most beautiful wild & scenic rivers tumble down through steep canyons, and towering forests on their way to a rocky coastline with wide stretches of sandy beach, before pouring out into the mighty Pacific ocean.
One of my favorite times and places for photography is the West Coast at dawn. You can catch the earth's shadow at a place where you might mostly be praying for some dramatic backlight at sunset. The sea mist only adds to the atmosphere of the shadowless twilight enhancing the mood of a peaceful morning. Most of the time you'll find you've got the whole place to yourself until you see that first jogger or other recreationalist thinking, "boy I got up early".
Off in the distance is a wildlife sanctuary and also the largest Island off the coast of Oregon.
4 shot panoramic which of course viewing small doesn't really do it much justice so the large one is there for you. I didn't really get a chance to finish shooting here because I had to be on a boat that was leaving at 8am and headed 40 miles or so up the Rogue River. I really enjoy taking advantage of any recreational activities an area has to offer especially in the middle of the day.
