[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a shot of a placid February sunset on the Oregon Coast, where the small Necanicum River enters the Pacific Ocean. The wave pattern in the foreground is the tide pushing up against the river current. The little dots along the horizon are seagulls sitting on a sand bank. The rough horizon is due to the fact that the breakers were larger than 8 feet, so the tops of the waves obstruct the view of the horizon (I stand about 6' tall).

The Pacific Northwest is more than just rain! Although this coastal area receives more than 100" of rain per year, mid-winter days can reach into the 60's when the sun comes out and the air is still. (Even though our latitude is the same as Montreal, Quebec!)

WOW!! What a great shot.. ! The colors and the gulls! Lovely! Well done!!!

Well done, James. An excellent sunset with awesome colors, lighting and POV. I especially like that you put the horizon at about 1/3 from the top and didn't break it up in the middle of this composition.
