Cannon Beach

We had precious little time to get to Cannon Beach but we were determined to make it before sunset. Cannon Beach is about a 30 minute drive from Astoria. These photos were taken at Ecola State Park and the place is simply breathtaking. I am afraid my photos do not do it justice. I had little light and no tripod so they are a bit soft and grainy. I will have to make a trip back again.

We braved the elements and a risky pathway to get to this cliff but it was worth it. Paul & Cindy enjoying the spectacular view.

The first thing we saw upon entering the park were elk.

  1. Stunning photos. So moody! Darkness. Gray skies. Silhouettes.

  4. I like the soft quality of some of the pictures, they paint the brooding mood of the weather nicely and are a nice contrast to the other sharp images. I've never been to Cannon Beach. Must go there soon!
