Scenery: Sunset (Bandon, OR)

Strolling down the shores of Beach Loop in Bandon, Oregon with my husband Brian the other night, I was amazed by the sheer power of the wind. Blowing so hard that we had to tuck our heads down and trudge slowly against it's never-ending gusts, we joked that it felt as if we were in the Arctic!


Sand swirling around us and waves crashing against the rock formations just-off shore, we felt as if we would freeze before we got to the other side of the famous Face Rock. I wanted to get to the other side before the sun set, to try to get a shot of the sun just above her mouth, as if she were drinking in the light.

When we finally reached a spot where the shore was dry enough to set down the tripod (in which my wonderful husband was kind enough to carry, even with the metal handle being SO cold), the sun was setting just behind her head. If you take a look at the rock behind the sun, you can make out a forehead, nose, open mouth, and chin - Face Rock. The colors were more than inspiring that evening and God set his sun to create a perfect halo above this lonely woman of the sea.


Our fingers were so frozen that we could hardly close our hands into fists as we made our way back to our car, but the sunset was more than worth the trip! These memories created during my photography adventures, mixed with the jaw-dropping sights God gives us during them, make my life all the better. As CS Lewis may put it, they're "unnecessary, like philosophy, like art. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival." This is actually from a quote of his about friendship, but it makes me think of these journeys, as well.

Have a blessed week, everyone!

Thank you so much! God truly does give the most wondrous sights :) When enlarged, you can see the other rocks in the shot. I absolutely love that shoreline.
