A cloud of haze at the horizon turned the sunlight a beautiful shade of red, lighting up the beach area of the Road's End State Recreation Site in Lincoln City, Oregon. This is a long beach, which extends out to the point in the distance. The wind was quite gusty prior to sunset, leaving the beach swept free of most footprints.
This is my favorite view of Cannon Beach and its iconic Haystack Rock. The trees do a nice job of framing the beach and rock, while obscuring most of the many condos that line the beach from hill to hill.
