Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy

Oregon Coast, September 2014

Oregon Coast, September 2014


This week’s photo challenge asks for an image which looks “dreamy.”  Take us on a flight of fancy,” Michelle challenges.

And so we return to the dreamy, peaceful, coast of Oregon for a few more images from my recent visit.

Mist rose from the ocean each morning and evening, illuminated by the sun.

Such a rare sight!  Normally overcast and rainy, the week I visited dawned unusually clear and warm.

We enjoyed the golden light of both sunrise and sunset, untouched by rain or fog, right up until my last full day on the coast.

These were sun-kissed autumn days of warm, salty air, and long evenings perfumed with woodsmoke.

One might dream of such a week lived on the beach in the company of gulls, searching the horizon for signs of whales.

I was there, and now I dream of returning to this beautiful place.
