Sunset View looking south from Ecola Point, the promontory of land between Cannon Beach and Seaside on the North Oregon Coast. While there are a few people walking in the distance, this beach is typically occupied only by birds and intertidal animals, such as the gulls, pelicans, and starfish shown in this image. This is one of my favorite areas to view sunsets, as is true for many others, so there are many images from this location. In this one the clouds are particularly celebratory and the birds especially numerous, due to an unusually close-in schooling of herring. Click on image to enlarge.
