The five senses can be portrayed in my ways photographically. This challenge is supposed to evoke the sense of joy using sight as the key. Since I’m recalling some of the pleasures I’ve experience this past 9 years in Oregon the place I’ll probably miss the most is our Pacific Ocean coastline. Cannon Beach with Haystack Rock will always be my favorite destination. I’ve visited this beach dozens of times at different times of the day and at different tidal levels. The air and sky here are so clean, so clear that folks seeing these pictures claim I oversaturate the colors. Actually the opposite is true as I generally desaturate the colors to make it more believable. I’ll always remember this beach. http://ceenphotography.com.
Haystack Rock is a 235-foot (72-meter) sea stack in Cannon Beach, Oregon. It is sometimes claimed locally to be the third-tallest such “intertidal” (meaning it can be reached by land) structure in the world, but there are no official references to support this. A popular tourist destination, the monolithic rock is adjacent to the beach and accessible by foot at low tide. The Haystack Rock tide pools are home to many intertidal animals, including starfish, sea anemone, crabs, chitons, limpets, and sea slugs. The rock is also a nesting site for many sea birds, including terns and puffins.
