Another picture of Bandon beach. Sea frets (mist coming in from the sea) mysteriously shroud the Oregon coastline. They seemed to be particularly present in the mornings while we were there. They constantly moved so that the scene changed quickly with the rocky outcrops appearing from the mist and then disappearing back into the fog. This was an early morning shot when just a few people were on the beach exercising dogs.

This is an excellent landscape. The morning fog creates a great mood.
Good framing, clarity and sharpness.
Very well composition, lovely presentation.

Atmospheric scene of the Bandon coast with the misty fog dominating, hiding the distant sea stacks.
Along our Pacific coast, it is common for morning fog even in California, though we do not receive anywhere as much rain as Oregon and Washington. And summer can be foggier than winter.
Thanks for sharing,

you were rewarded to wake up early so only a man walking the dog on the beach, taking the best of this misty morning, looking at the huge rocks formations and the many waves over the ocean.

Hello Ann - You have managed to captured the mood of the morning beautifully here. The mistiness adds a wonderful soft dreaminess to the shot and together with the lady and her dog amplifies the poetic beauty of the scene. I love the colour palette with its very slight warm tint which promises a warm day.
Hope you are feeling better.

C'est une très belle photo,j'aime beaucoup léa lumière du matin avec le promeneur et son chien.
C'est bien fait, bon cadrage.
carlo62 (34572) 2014-08-07 10:48
è incredibile il potere della fotografia, sei riuscita ad isolare un uomo e il suo cane, in un paesaggio fantastico, difficile da immaginare per una passeggiata come questa.
Complimenti, un colpo meraviglioso.

I'm intrigued by this picture because it really is stunningly beautiful. What also intrigues me is that it was taken (judging by your exif data) almost exactly 12 hours after your previous shot from here - a morning shot after the one the evening before.
Although taken from a slightly different viewpoint, your use of a long lens (as opposed to a short one in your last picture) has compressed the perspective superbly well and has also enhanced the effect of the morning mist on the distant view.
The distant coastline, seen through the mist, is amazing in the complexity of its contours and the tall distant pinnacle of rock is balanced beautifully by the lone figure with his/her dog on the foreshore.
The light is gorgeous as it lights up the mist and catches the tops of the rocky excrescences, the colours are wonderful with two almost complementary colours (blue and brown) predominating, your exposure is perfect and the details and sharpness are second to none.

Awesome view from a dominant position
Very nice presence of the mist
Very good lights ambiance
stego (24030) 2014-08-07 11:38
Amazing!... Really a great capture. One can feel all that humidity on the air, the revolving sea, yet the foreground seems quite calm. It's beautiful for its mood and its graphic composition.
boa (6081) 2014-08-07 11:53
i like the wildness in this shot. Rough sea, sharp rocks and fresh air, wonderful! The man with the dog was a good idea to include in this scene but pictures like this works good for me both with and without human presence. Warm light and an excellent composition, well done!
Have a nice evening/
macjake (57490) 2014-08-07 12:26
again, seeing this in your gallery really makes me want to re-visit this area down south from Vancouver.
lots of depth, lots of interest with the small dog and person walking, love the waves and the landscape into the bg. What more could you ask for!
dcole (281) 2014-08-07 13:11
This is a beautiful image. The scenery is stunning. I love the composition and misty cliffs in the distance. This is the perfect place for a morning walk. Well done.
Royaldevon (30793) 2014-08-07 14:01
This shot is so interesting.
There is an incongruity between the f/g of bright dog walking and the mysterious, mist laden b/g, conjuring up memories of wreckers and smugglers!
I have really loved browsing it.
It is almost hypnotic, maybe from the incoming waves as well as the cool mist.
My warm regards,
ikeharel (58941) 2014-08-07 21:44
Good morning Ann,
Turbolent water and stiff rocks view through the mist, made this beach scenery so attractive.
The lone person walking the dog gave good scale to appreciate the size of this place.
Fine spotted and applied.
emka (80972) 2014-08-07 22:44
Powerful image with the fog, rocks and waves. I would be afraid that such a wave can suddenly to take my little beast. Splendid view.
I was in similar place, probably also in Oregon but I do not remember where it was.

Beautiful seascape with the mist and the light creating special atmosphere. The cliffs and rocky outcrops are awe-inspiring. The walker with his dog is very well placed and provides a sense of scale.
Thanks for sharing, I didn't know this place existed!

beautiful beach and seascape. Amazing a small islands and rocks. Good composition with the walking man (I see scale). Photo I like a lot.
Have a nice WE.
holmertz (42319) 2014-08-08 4:09
A fascinating view of strange rocks, nice waves and a man with his dog. The waves make us feel the breeze and hear the roaring of the sea. The light is very well handled, clear in the foreground and hazy further back.
dkmurphys (50224) 2014-08-08 4:14
Superb place to take a walk in the morning. Spectacular rocks and waves, lovely scene.

Very attractive, pleasant-looking and inviting picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, horizontal format, black & white borders, chosen pov and composition are all excellent photo qualities that I truly enjoyed!
I love the presence of that man with his dog!
That mist is also a highlight!

saxo042 (37588) 2014-08-08 9:02
A fantastic landscape and a very beautiful picture with beautiful colours. The man and his dog provide a good sense of proportions and they also bring the necessary life to the scene. Beautiful rock formations!
marabu61 (8755) 2014-08-08 14:05
Now this beach looks perfect for an early morning walk indeed. The landscape with those impressive rocks is amazing, the light gorgeous and the light mist just superbe.
A truly lovely scene with the lonely man walking his dog amongst this landscape and the beautiful color of the sea. This is a glimpse on Paradise.

It is a beautiful sea shore and morning fog, blue water, rock made it dramatic. Good composition with an old lady with a dog at the sea shore. Color balance specially blue, POV and light everything you controlled perfectly.

lousat (78503) 2014-08-10 1:55
Hi Ann,this perspective is absolutely fantastic!!! What a sense of big spaces of this coast,and the alone man with the dog give us an idea od the dimensions of place,no comment about the quality truly perfect,2 points are not enough...ehehe....have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano
Tue (27696) 2014-08-10 13:09
What a spectacular view down the coastline. I love the inclusion of the lonely man walking his dog. The circumstances with the mist and the early morning sunlight are just beautiful!
jcpix (13708) 2014-08-10 16:58
Ahh yes, how great is the Oregon coastline...and this picture sums it up sublimely! I've tried a number of times myself to come up with something like this, but have never achieved this kind of idyllic result. It would have been compelling on it's own, but the addition of the man and dog is the icing on the cake. Congratulations on an outstanding image, this really carries a lot of the Pacific Northwest allure. Enjoy the new week. Take care.
wolf38 (31282) 2014-08-13 7:50
Hello Ann. A water landscape with rocks and strong waves. That everything is perfect for a walk with dog. I would like to be there. Well seen and presented.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.
adores (38240) 2014-08-13 17:47
Fantastic view and capture! I really like it with just the lonely man and his dog and the atmoshere is perfect with the small waves and the mist. We can almost hear the ocean.
eldancer1 (29055) 2014-08-14 9:48
Wow! This bring me back to my days living in Portland, Oregon! I like the northwest even with all those rain and especially the beach on the Oregon coast. Beautiful capture and I'm glad you included the person and the dog. Love the effect of the morning mist on the mood. Very well done, tfs.
Periko (2815) 2014-08-14 10:34
What a great shot! I like the effect achieved with your zoom lens, which creates a pleasant scenery.

A very beautiful picture,a strange atmosphere, like a dream, I love it.
Waylim (25362) 2014-08-15 16:20
One of the my favorite little beach town in Oregon. Love this beach with all the rocks rising up from the sea water. It is particular beautiful at hightide in the evening.
Excellent light with some misty haze and lovely mood with the lone person walking the dog.
PaulVDV (23023) 2014-08-16 12:43
What a beautiful coastline!
And presented in an excellent composition!
Very good depth.
The fog creates an interesting mood.
Good inclusion of the man and his dog. They give a good sense of scale.
Best regards, Paul

What a beautiful beachscape and splendid atmosphere, I love the foaming water and detail around with & misty bg and this looks super with muted colours. Nice to see the two lively figs beautifully stand out against the painterly effect!! Wonderfully atmospheric really brings out the mood of the image. Excellent photography, TFS
lestans (17130) 2014-08-19 3:36
Fantastic view here!! Ocean in its strength, rocks, waves, and a little man with his dog in a corner .
There are huge landscapes in the western USA coast.
And you captured it very well.
Greeting from cold rainy Italy

Superbe ce paysage au petit matin. Des élements graphiques très intéressants entre les vagues et les rochers. De très belles couleurs !!
claudeD (33662) 2014-09-02 1:44
wow! what an amazing nature picture with so much atmosphere. Excellent composition and fine light managment. The man excercising the dog on the beach really is adding life to your shot. Very good contribution to TE.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
Gigidusud (16585) 2014-09-03 11:16
Fantastic seascape! Splendid the morning light on the bay. Surreal the character with his dog on this place. I like a lot!
josepmarin (57831) 2014-09-04 4:17
I love the atmosphere of early morning in this beach, the weak light, the foggy landscape in background, and the fantastic effect of the white foam of the waves on the blue ocean.
The person with the dog provide a great vital feel into the composition, and is a good reference on the place.
Light and color are skillfully managed.
mkamionka (30921) 2014-09-18 14:12
this is really impressive! It reminds me the Apostles in Australia (which I know form photos only) This seems possibly even bigger. Fantastic composition I like very much the presence of the person with a dog it adds so much life and interest and they were place here by you in the very best spot! I like the subtle mist further in the distance. Beautiful spot -perfectly used opportunity.
