Quick Shot – Cannon Beach


Sunset at Northern Cannon BeachTanya, Carson and I attended our annual Becker family gathering last weekend. This year it was at Cannon Beach, Oregon. We camped, as did several of my brothers and sisters. Other family members slept in hotel rooms (I have four sisters and two brothers; all but one attended the weekend, as did my Dad, stepmom, and various nieces and nephews). However, most the visiting was in the campground. We arrived Friday evening, and I didn’t even make it to the beach until Saturday night. I considered not even taking the camera out for the whole weekend, instead just enjoying being with the family. However, I couldn’t resist the call of the camera, and I planned a shot for Saturday sunset. Using the Photographers Ephemeris, I planned a shot with the sun setting behind some small islands just off shore. Most images of Cannon Beach show Haystack Rock (don’t believe me, do a Google Image search of Cannon Beach). I wanted to do something a bit different; to show a different part of the beach, and this is the result. It wasn’t the best sunset in the world, but I was happy with the result.

    I have nominated you for the Virtual Blogger’s Award. I think your site is as beautiful as it is informative. You have an elegant style about you. Here’s the link to my blog where you can accept your award (copy and insert in your blog). There’s a bit of effort involved, but I’ve found it a wonderful exercise.

    • Kylie, thank you so much for the nomination. However, I have chosen not to partake in awards of this type that require nominating other blogs, etc. It’s not that I don’t think they do not give good publicity to worthy blogs, it’s just that my time is very limited and I do not have time to do the required nominations. So thank you once again. Rather than go through the whole process, I’ll put a link to your blog in an upcoming post.
