Photographer's Note

After an exhausting and troublesome week, coupled with temperatures that reached 120f/49c here in Phoenix, I thought I could use a day at the beach! Well, that’s not so easy when you live in the desert, so I had to opt for the next best thing…a picture of such a place. :)

This was taken early enough in the day that the haze around the coastline of Cannon Beach had not yet burned off, which left a rather dull tone over the area. Despite the lackluster appearance, it was actually a nice day to be out and about enjoying the cool Pacific waters.

I would have thought that the fast shutter speed was adequate for this shot, but I believe my distance and the larger aperture for this hand held picture wasn’t quite enough to obtain a sharper image!? Putting the technical details aside, the naturally layered landscape and scene that was taking place in front of me was too good to pass up. A leisurely walk, or time to bodyboard…your choice!

Thanks for stopping by!
