I bet you are getting tired of seeing images from my weekend in Oregon with Dave Wilson, Jim Nix, Justin Balog and Jacob Lucas. The truth is that it was such a great weekend of photography that I have a HUGE backlog of images. It seemed that no matter where we went, there were great images to be made.
This image was made at Ecola State Park just north of Cannon Beach in Oregon with my IR converted Nikon D200. I added back some digital noise in post to give it a sort of “modern vintage” look.
As you already know from previous posts, our plan was to be back at Haystack Rock for sunset and then astrophotography later that night. The real variable was this band of rain just off the coast, it doesn’t take many clouds to ruin star trails, even if they might actually help a sunset image. Fortunately for our plans, that band of rain stayed just off shore all afternoon. It was almost like it wanted to sit there until someone took it’s picture. :-)
