Face Rock Morning - Bandon, Oregon

The Oregon Coast often gives you very different looks at its beauty. The beautiful rock formations and sea stacks have different looks depending on the weather. Sunny vs. rain. Clear vs. shrouded in fog. Tide is in vs. out. The tide might be the most surprising factor. Some locations are phenomenal when the tide is in with waves crashing against the rocks. Others are terrific when the tide is out and you can check out hidden caves and walk right up to the sea stacks. Spending two weeks there allow you to see the many facets of the coast. This photo of Face Rock was taken on our fourth visit and the only time the tide was out. I was able to get a reflection of it in a puddle left by the retreating water.
