Magical Evening

  Myers Creek, Gold Beach, Oregon


The Oregon Coast is one of the most beautiful coasts in the US. The rock formations that dot the coast are amazing to see and I always wonder how they got there. In my opinion, the best time to photograph them is in the evening. This particular stretch of the coast is known as Myers Creek (after the creek that feeds the Pacific) in Gold Beach. 

Shooting in the evening often means getting an early dinner and hoping that the weather cooperates. Most of our stay was challenged with fog, so after eating dinner, we hoped for the best. It turned out to be a magical evening. There were only a few people on the beach, leaving us with this wonderful landscape to enjoy. The setting sun cast some great light and the reflections on the wet beach were outstanding.

When I took this shot, I didn't see my son hurrying out of the photo, I noticed him during the post-processing but decided to leave him in to add some scale to the rock formations.
