Cannon Beach is always a wonderful destination. I love the clean crisp air, busy beach happenings, and million dollar views like this world famous Haystack landmark. Awesome!!
I figured without sun or a fabulous sunset I might as well use the clouds to my advances. So, I walked way out past all the beach combers and kite flyers to capture this three shot from my Nikon D600. This one is all-natural, meaning it is a simple HDR without much post processing other than a vibrance kick and noise reduction.
Come see it in better resolution at my Oregon Gallery at Fine Art America.
While visiting Cannon Beach a favorite dining destination is the Driftwood Restaurant and Lounge. They have the best crab cocktail on the planet. It is fresh and super tasty. You can sit out on their patio and enjoy your food and a beer or wine at the fire table. It is really a relaxing time. You should stop by and grab some crab and a beer and take in the experiences of Cannon Beach.
You will find a quaint shopping experience in this landmark town along the Oregon coast. You will also find an artist rich environment here. There are fine art painters and photographers everywhere you look. And if you pop into some photo galleries you will find outstanding captures of the beach and of the Haystack rock. So many images captured at sunset with the rock in the foreground.
On this day the wind was whipping around, a cold chill was about, and rain threatened. We were only in town for a few hours to shop and to eat and to capture the Haystack for my HDR landscape collection. I was not happy with the conditions of the day in Cannon Beach, but I made it work. Stunning!
