Haystack Rock from the south


Haystack Rock from Arcadia Beach on the Oregon coast

I posted last week about a work trip I made to Oregon and that I stopped at Arcadia Beach on the way back to my place here in Olympia.  Arcadia Beach is just a little bit south of the very famous Cannon Beach and the iconic Haystack Rock that you have seen many images of before, including some on this very blog.  The great thing about Arcadia is that while it is every bit as beautiful as anywhere else along the Oregon coast, it does tend to be a little less busy.  The other great thing about Arcadia is that you still get a view of Haystack but from a little different vantage than what you see in the vast majority of images out there.  This image is an example of that.  For the record, Haystack is on the right side of this image.

As some of you might know, I grew up in the pacific northwest, but moved to Arizona when I joined the USAF back in the late 1980’s.  One of the truly great things about moving back “home” is the ability to re-discover places that I have been to before and see them in an entirely new way.  It is almost like seeing them for the first time again.

I hope you enjoy this image as much as I do.

On a side note, I have relaunched my personal blog over at myblueheaven.com and would appreciate your checking it out.  That blog will be the home for all of my non-photography interests.

    I really like the rock on the right, Haystack. The way the water is splashing up against it with the long exposure enveloping it in mist. Wonderful job Scott.

      Thanks Chris. The sad thing is that the image really doesn’t do justice to just how amazing it looked that afternoon.
