Picture of the Day - September 4, 2009

Today's picture is a study of contrasts, and a magnificent sunset to boot! The coastline of the Pacific Northwest is really nothing more than mile after mile of stunning scenery, and photographer Ron Trees captured this image to perfection. Here is Ron's story behind the photograph:
    "While on vacation this summer, we spent a few days camping near
    Brookings, Oregon on the Pacific Coast. We spent one evening on
    the coast and I tried to record the sunset that evening.

    I love the Oregon coast and we have not been there for a while.
    The waves are so relaxing to watch and it just a beautiful place to
    be. I hope that you can feel some relaxation in viewing this photo.
    There is so much hurry in our lives that we just need to take time
    to slow down and catch our breath. Other photos from this evening
    can be found here."
         --Ron Trees

    Breathtaking! I have seen a couple of sunsets from this very place, and they are truly awesome. Mr. Trees, I am a huge fan of your work.

    I love the Oregon coast, and places like this are one reason why. As Rick said, the Northwest coast offers some of the most stunning coastal scenery in the country, and this image makes me wish I was there right now, listening to the roar of the surf and the cries of gulls... and those wonderful sunsets! Nice job, Ron!

    I'm proud to call Georgia home and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else, but if I did take a notion to go somewhere else it would probably be the Pacific Northwest. The photos you guys publish on are nothing short of amazing, and I'm sure that having such gorgeous places to photograph in the first place has a lot to do with it. Of course it helps to have some awesome photographic skills as well, and Mr. Trees and Mr. Rockwell are obviously the cream of the crop.

    Scenes like this bring back fond memories of my childhood years back in Maine. Thank you Mr. Rouse for providing such an amazing "venue" for photographers from all over the world to share their little corner of it with us. I've been visiting this site almost every morning for over two years now, and during that time I've seen photographs of places ranging from literally just down the road to places so far away from me that I'll never get to see them any other way. And Mr. Trees, thank YOU for spurring those wonderful childhood memories of mine.

    Certainly captured the mood on this one, Ron. I can imagine myself watching the sunset and wondering how those magnificent boulders got there. Great job.
