Friday Image No. 111

Cannon Beach, USA. Olympus EM5
Cannon Beach, USA. Olympus EM5

This isn’t my usual style of image but I thought I would share it. The shot was taken on my trip to America earlier in the year. The location is a Cannon Beach which I absolutely loved. It reminds me a lot of St Ives in Cornwall but with an American slant. It seems somehow almost too perfect.

Anyway, I was out for a stroll along the beach and deep storm clouds started to roll in. But rather than raining, they created a superb light show. Despite this being superbly beautiful, it was quite dark and difficult to capture. Trying to process this in my usual style resulted in failure so I thought I would become a little more artistic, emphasising the elements of the scene.

I hope you like it and have a great weekend.

  1. Love this image, Michael! Beautiful light and wonderful textures. Cannon Beach is a favorite place; we’re from the western U.S. and used to spend quite a bit of time on the Oregon coast, particularly in the Newport, Waldport, Florence section. Now we live in Florence (Italy). ( :

    1. Thank you. I’m please you like it. This was the first time I had visited the area and I loved it. But if you’re now living in Florence Italy, that’s equally wonderful but in a different way. Damn, you have made me want to visit both countries again.
