For two of three days I was visiting the Oregon Coast, I was faced with nagging rain and gloomy sky. Saddened with the thought that I'd never get to see the famous sunset over Haystack Rocks, I was visiting Astoria, a city about 25 miles North of Cannon Beach. Suddenly, the sky started clearing up! I drove as fast as I legally could, got to the beach about 30 minutes before sunset and set up my tripod. The sun went down in a kaleidoscopic array of colors and I got my best image of the trip.
