Newport Harbor, Oregon Coast.
The day had been spent walking beaches at low tide, climbing up and down cliffs looking for shots, dodging from location to location shooting massive breaking waves and all of this within a few miles of this location. After all of that, I was amazed at how sheltered this harbor was at nightfall. The quality of the reflection has, on more than one occasion, had me trying to hang one of these prints upside down!
Lesson learned: since I’d never attempted shots like these, I had to rely on little things I’d read, or heard about over the years which once again proves to me, it always pays off to be prepared for good fortune.
