Another clear day on the Oregon Coast! It’s gonna be another great sunset. I wonder how many sunset photos I have? Oh well, what’s a few more? Just a quick shot from campsite 17 on my way to the beach.
Today is the shortest day of the year. I headed to the beach at 4:20pm.
We only have about 9 hours of sunlight this time of year. Less than that if it’s raining 🙂
There’s a slight breeze and the temps are in the 30’s. This December has been very dry.
Bubbles and shadows make pretty patterns in the water as the tide pulls back. Not many agates are out today. I picked up as much trash as I did rocks.
The lack of storms has brought the sand back to the beach. The one stump that was visible, just a day or two ago, is covered up now. The sun seems to pick up speed as it drops and I find myself walking backwards to see if I can get higher on the beach to see more of it. I quickly snap one just in case it’s my last of the day.
And I think, “Huh, I wonder if I caught that little sliver?” It wasn’t until I put it on the computer, and zoomed in, that I saw it was GREEN! COOL! It’s right on the edge of the water, under the orange sky. Here’s a good website that explains the green flash phenomena: http://mintaka.sdsu.edu/GF/
And here’s one of those crab boats. I would need binoculars, instead of my camera, to tell if they were setting the pots or retrieving them.
Great walk on the beach!
