This video guy and I were the last two taking advantage of the late light of this sunset. It almost always pays to take shots several minutes after the crowd of photographers leave as soon as the sun is down. Taken at Cannon Beach, Oregon, USA with a Canon XT and a 28-135.

I have had a camera in my hand since the late sixties! Recently someone looked at a photo display I had in a coffee shop and got goose bumps. All I try to do is to capture various aspects of God’s amazing creation and let you also enjoy what I am seeing! If you get goose bumps, that’s great. But remember I only capture what he created. He creates, I capture, we enjoy.
