DescriptionFrom behind a magnificent and beautiful tree, gentle waves of the Pacific Ocean lap along the shore at Ecola State Park in western Oregon. From Cannon-Beach.net: Ecola State Park, located off Highway 101, north of Cannon Beach, offers some of the most breathtaking and exquisite views to be found on the Oregon Coast. To the south lies Cannon Beach and its landmark Haystack Rock. The mists and fog compete with the sun to create an ever-changing vista. The surf changes from low white foam to crashing swells, from cobalt blue to sea green, to the myriad shades of grey in a storm. You won't see the same scene twice!
Don Schwartz, Portland, Oregon Member Since September 2012 Artist Statement Photography is for me a dance with nature. It is the immersion in a landscape; the sharing of a habitat with nature’s creatures. It is the sense of being lost in the moment, where the passing of time goes unnoticed. It is the serendipity of capturing a moment in time that becomes a timeless moment. The quiet places, the places of simple beauty, draw me in – from the delicate splendor of dew dancing on an iris petal to the magnificent breadth of a gray whale slicing through the water. With my camera, I am a blessed witness in a field of splendor.
