Port of Bandon

The pre-sunset winter light drew me in for these shots… there’s something eerie or other-worldly created by the slanting sun.Marina



The Coquille River before it reaches the sea….Marina-4Once in a lifetime, if one is lucky, one so merges with sunlight and air and running water that whole eons, the eons that mountains and deserts know, might pass in a single afternoon without discomfort.

You have probably never experienced in yourself the meandering roots of a whole watershed or felt your outstretched fingers touching, by some clairvoyant extension, the brooks of snow-line glaciers at the same time you were flowing toward the Gulf over the eroded debris of worn-down mountains.Β

    • I am so sorry it’s taken me so long to respond, but this cold seems to have my brain all muddled. I’m glad you enjoyed the pix and the quote. Thank you for stopping by and commenting!


    • I’ve wondered just how much that cloud overhang added to the scene. I honestly believe that the lighting is best anytime except for summer, when there’s the fog layer to contend with and/or stark, glaring sun and clear skies.


  1. Gunta, This is nice and quaint. The marina is nearly empty. I am on the advisor board of our local marina and we are bulging at the seems to get more room. Yours seems so quiet and peaceful. That is good. No big hustle and bustle.



    • Now that you mention it, the marina was a bit emptier than usual. Perhaps some boats were out fishing. I know the Coast Guard Vessel that normally parks (?!?) there isn’t docked for this shot.
