Oregon Coast

Unread postby UrsaMajor » Tue Sep 06, 2016 3:13 am

After helping to move my older granddaughter into the dorm for her Freshman year of college in Portland, Oregon, I drove home via the cost of Oregon and Northern California. It's a drive I have done multiple times, but I always enjoy the scenery.

On this occasion, near Gold Beach I encountered fog moving in around 4 to 5 in the afternoon, which I did not expect so early during August.

Beautiful views of the ocean and the fog rolling in, Tom :)

I think that this one is my favorite of the images that I shot while the general lighting was still bright and most of the colors vivid.

I shot some additional images later, and also the next morning before the fog lifted. I think I like those better when converted to Black & White in an attempt to match the feel of the atmosphere.

As it happens, all of the images below were shot with my Minolta 135mm lens, using a LA-EA2 adapter on my NEX-6. Some of the color images above were shot with the NEX-6, and some with my A6000.

The first and third in the B&W series are my favorites, Tom.

That is part of the reason I drive the Oregon Coast (and some of the coast of Northern California) whenever I have a reason to be in that area with a little free time. I live on the coast of Southern California, and enjoy the scenery here, but there is something special about the coast in that area.

For some reason, I don't see as many surfers along that coast as I do here.

See any hints in the photos as to why this might be? :shock:

A very challenging coastline, Tom.

Good opportunities for the photographers indeed if not for athletic intentions. Those rocks protruding from the water surface and the shape-shifting fog add to the danger-evoking spell of the scenery.

Nicely captured.

Thanks for sharing,

I have been in love with this coastline since we first drove along it in stormy weather in 1967, and I have returned several times.

Here are two renditions of another image that I took on my drive along the coast a few weeks ago.

I originally thought that it should be a black and white image, but I now lean toward the color version.

The color version is nice, but the BW is my favorite. Nice shots.

Both beautiful pictures,Tom. I like the sense of drama in the B&W, but the green of the dune grass in the colour version helps balance the foreground for me so I'm leaning toward the colour version more.
