This is part of a larger HDR panorama which is 2 landscape-oriented images wide, with 7 exposures per image, tonemapped in Photomatix Pro. This image was cropped out of the middle of the larger panorama. SORRY - I posted 72ppi and 300ppi versions of this image, but somehow ended up with 4 images posted, and can't find a way to delete them.
As we were traveling up the Oregon coast we were looking for a spot to stop and catch the sunset when we came upon Boardman State Park. We pulled in and headed down the beach to the south end where there were some nice sea stacks. There were some wispy clouds and and a nice little stream flowing across the beach which added to the composition. We found out later this was Lone Ranch Beach. It was a beautiful fall evening and we had the place almost completely to ourselves.
