Cannon Beach, Oregon

Cannon Beach, Oregon

These photos hold special meaning for my wife Anita and me, as they were taken on our Thirtieth Wedding Anniversary celebration trip. A dramatic sunset at Cannon Beach proved to a great a way to spend the evening, after a day of exploring nearby beach towns. Although the waves were not large, there was ample water to temporarily create a mirror-like surface on the expansive stretch of wet sand. I was thrilled to capture some remarkably vivid reflections in this transient water mirror, with sea stack rock silhouettes as a backdrop. I shot a lot of photographs that evening, using all three of my lenses from various vantage points. This image is a favorite, due to the clarity of the water reflections and the warm evening light on an otherwise chilly day along the Oregon coast.

A Lee .6 graduated neutral density filter was used to darken the sky, balancing the brightness of the sky with that of the beach foreground. A B+W polarizer filter was used to eliminate glare from surfaces of the water and sand. Nikon D200 camera, Nikkor lenses and a Gitzo G 2220 tripod with a Manfrotto 486 head.
