It rained the two days that we were at Newport, Oregon. I wanted to get a coastal sunset and thought that it would elude me completely until I saw this for one golden moment. It’s not the kind of sunset that has colored stripes going across the sky as if someone painted it but only God could have painted this one. For a few moments the sky and water were turned to gold and the sun managed to reflect itself onto the sand. Then the sun quickly disappeared behind a cloud and was finished for the evening. I think that all sunsets are pretty special but this one was priceless.
Original image was taken from the deck at Sylvia’s Beach Inn at Newport, Oregon. Image taken as a RAW image with a Canon 7D and a 70-300mm IS DO telephoto lens at 70mm, F4.5, 1/3200s, ISO 400.
Seagull was added as a composite image by using layers in Photoshop CS6.

I’m a 66 year old retired grandmother that loves photography. I love being out in nature and love lots of color, so Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Forests and forest light, waterfalls, flowers and insects are also some of my favorite subjects to photograph.
