Artist's Description

*A lofty wet darkness
Above western seas
Invading blue’s starkness
By strong ocean breeze

Sparkles that now dance
Where sky meets the sea
Take their last prance
Before they all flee

Then partners of rain drops
Will claim that dance floor
And the echo of flip-flops
Will be gone from the shore*

This photo was taken about twenty miles north of Florence, Oregon. It shows a weather phenomenon, known commonly as the ‘Pineapple Express’, where heavy precipitation is carried across the Pacific in a fast moving system from the Hawaiian islands region to the Pacific Northwest.

This photo is a very good example of that phenomenon, with clear skies over the coast to the east, while the heavy clouds over the ocean move in from the southwest. I love the multitude of different hues that dance across the water, and the contrast between the clear blue sky and the dark clouds beside it.
