ContainsImages Miscellaneous Coastal Photos

The following are some low-res copies of photos that I took on a recent overnight hammock trip on the Oregon Coast.

This dog was wandering on the beach and I noticed the reflection, so I decided to take a quick pic.




The next 4 photos are of a shipwreck ( Peter Iredale) that's over 100 years old.













I took several photos of the sunset, and here's one that I particularly liked the way in which the tide was coming up on the beach.



These snapshots were taken with my compact Canon SX210IS camera.

I really enjoy looking at peoples' photos.

Yours are really wonderful, Reality! I know nothing when it comes to photography, but I really like your pics. I like your use of light as well as subject matter.

I'm considering cameras for future purchase, so it's very helpful to see what different models can do.

It's also wonderful to see photos of different places. It's really beautiful out there on the west coast!

Thanks for sharing yours with us. Any more you can share?

Thank you very much, Perkolady. I'm glad that you like them.

Here are a couple of other shots. I intentionally shot into the sun for the effect.





The above photos are a little "different," but they are exactly what I was after while taking a few snapshots that day. They were taken freehand (without tri/monopod). However, I plan to take the LT4 trekking poles (for use as a monopod) with me next time.

I really enjoy hiking and camping over at the coast. I plan to return soon for an overnight backpacking trip. I'm sure I'll take pics then too.

Wow things sure have come a long way...

I remember back in the day (lol), aiming toward the sun was the last thing you should do.

Lovely photos, Reality! Thanks for adding more to the thread

Food For Thought

Great lake shot!
Reminds me of Bobbit's Hole at Eno River State Park,NC near my home...my favorite spot to stop and think.
Hope you brought the old cane pole along with the camera.

Thanks tonto. I didn't have a cane pole, but I always have line and a hook ready for when the need arises.

That lake area looks like a good place to set up a hammock and daydream myself into a nap, Reality!

The abandoned buckets made me picture kinds playing with them until someone shouted, "Ice cream!!" LOL

Thanks again!

Perkolady, that's great that you are able to look at the photos and see more in them - a story or more meaning.

When I take photos, it's usually because I see something more in the subject -- and I do what I can to compose them accordingly.

It's nice that you see beyond the obvious and enjoy more.

Thanks for sharing.

Reality

Nice shots Reality.

Maybe you can help clear a memory up for me.

I'm from Eugene originally and spent most of my coastal time in the strip between Coos Bay and Newport. When I was 10 or so I went on a trip with a friends family and did a night hike on the beach. The only thing I can remember about the spot is fog, a ship wreck and sand that looked like somebody had sprinkled glitter in it. Is the sand extra sparkly/reflective on this beach?

P.S.

Your snowy pics around Mt. Hood made me homesick.
