Myrtle Beach Morning

For those of us on the left coast, the sun sets over the ocean. Watching the sun instead rise over the ocean just feels wrong. Fortunately, the humidity gave the scene some color.

This is day six of a week of nature photography. For this shot, I went back to the archives when we visited Myrtle Beach in 2007.

Cannon Beach Sunset

Cannon Beach was beautiful yesterday. Midday, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and the winds were light. The winds increased, and a bank of clouds blew in, eliminating any chance for a sunset — or so I thought.

After pizza, I ran to the end of 2nd Street to get one last glimpse of the ocean. On the horizon was this glowing pinkish-orange object shaped like a ship. I couldn’t imagine how anyone could get an entire ship to glow so bright, so colorful.

Fortunately, I didn’t ask anyone what it was. After all, we Oregonians sometimes joke about not knowing what that bright round object in the sky is. I’ve just never asked for real.1before… :-/
