Oregon Coast Pt. 1
I spent quite a bit of time along the Oregon Coast and my camera got a workout for sure! Salt spray and blowing sand coated my lenses, my face and my clothes. The cool, moist air soaked into my bones and I was content with every minute I spent walking the beaches.
I saw some amazing sunrises and sunsets but what I remember the most is the calmness and pure relaxation I felt during my time there. I’m convinced that I’ll spend some years of my life living there and my soul will thank me.
I grew up in Montana, well away from any beach, and the coast has always appealed to me. I remember visiting the Oregon Coast as a kid and tasting salt water for the first time. I didn’t care that the water was cold or that the sky was grey. I still don’t. I confirmed this by spending some great years living in Seattle and seeing 51+ shades of grey there! I don’t care for the heat and am happiest in a hoody and a beanie so the NW feels amazing to me:)
I was extremely fortunate to be able to spend some extended time in my paradise. It was more than a vacation, it was my life. I allowed myself time to get in touch with the ocean and beach so I could then try to capture what it is that makes this place so special. I’ve been going through many images and I realized I need to break it up into a few posts because I have much to say and share about this place that so many people call paradise.
Enjoy and I’ll have many more to share in upcoming posts.
