With a break in the grey weather, it was the perfect time to pack up the camera and head out to the ocean for the afternoon.
Touted as one of the best scenic drives along the Oregon coast, the Three Capes Scenic Route offers not only spectacular views from the road, but also stunning parks along the shores edge.
Back from a Christmas break in Florida, I decided I would do something different this New Years and go camping in a couple State Parks. First up on my list was Cape Disappointment State Park in Southern Washington.
One morning I headed out to Keewaydin Island by Kayak. As I sat there on the kayak with the rising sun behind me I noticed how nicely it warmed up the breaking waves. So I spent a bit of time with the telephoto trying to capture the moment.
A few shore birds from one of my visits down to the beach during sunset. This Tri-colored Heron hunts for minnows on the shore break.
