Seal Rock Sunset

I read an article a few months back about photographing the Oregon Coast, and I was surprised when it recommended the winter months as the best time. The days can be gray and cold, with almost constant rain, but when the storms passes, the result can be amazing. This was one of those times.. Mid February...It had been raining and cold all day, and the evening forecast called for much of the same....but a little break in the clouds just above the horizon held some promise. The sun began to set, the light began to change....and just minutes after the sun completely disappeared, the sky exploded into these amazing colors. It was like watching a scene being painted by the hand of God Himself.....and I felt incredibly blessed to have been able to have seen it.
