A pair of ducks flying over Garrison Lake during a gorgeous southern Oregon coast sunset. (USA)

Beyond Garrison Lake is the Pacific ocean. Sea stacks of the Orford Reef are visible on the right horizon, which are approximately 5 miles out to sea.

    Lovely glow & I like how the rays fan out across the top. What are sea stacks? You need to take time to educate us midwestern hillbillies since we’re surrounded by farms rather than the ocean. :)

  • Sea stacks are big rocks (a column of rock) sticking out of the water (sea). They are usually steep and not attached to the headlands (like a small island). I’m so glad you like the photo… thanks much for commenting. A happy Saturday to you!
