Cannon Beach, Oregon

the Oregon coast is both beautiful and dramatic, but the weather can be fierce there in Spring. Such was the case during early April 2011. After a 9 hour drive, the trip really began upon arrival at Cannon Beach, a small and sympathetic town on the west coast of northern Oregon. The weather was not sympathetic though, grey and stormy with frequent rain. Still both location and blustery conditions set the tone for the next few days.

This really shows the power of nature on the coast. Great mood. This image shows that you do not have to have blue skies to capture nature at it's best. I almost can almost feel the wind and smell the ocean. Voted

Super shot of this low-lying cloud and shoreline, David.
I'm wondering if it might look even better as a 4:2 letterbox crop, losing the top third of the photo where the interest is lacking?
