The ever changing moods of the coast…

coast-2376

The sunset never ceases to surprise. We thought it was done, but this called for a u-turn!

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.

  1. “The ever changing moods of the coast…” this description is what makes the coast so perfect. You can arrive in one mood, but when experience the beauty of the many moods of the coast, you can’t help but smile and marvel at how the scene can change so majestically. Great sunset photo ~ will you be enjoying the eclipse on the coast as well?

    • We had some vague plans for the Eclipse from home where the sun rises at about the right time in a notch in the surrounding mountains. Unless you’re out in the ocean somehow, you’re not likely to catch the eclipse. Ocean views to the east are very much restricted by mountains and trees so that the sun doesn’t get above them until after the eclipse would be over. If our view from home is obstructed by fog we thought about heading up into the mountains to get ABOVE the fog which could be downright interesting, but at the moment we have a major wildfire erupting just over the ridge in the direction we had planned for eclipse watching. If you see the “Chetco Bar Fire” anywhere on the news, that’s us! We’re still a good distance from the actual fire, but it just jumped the Chetco River which was one of the barriers between us and the fire.

      Things could get mighty interesting…. Gold Beach is jumping with firefighters moving in at the fairgrounds and the grocery store was utterly crazy just now. We may just have a bit more on our minds than the eclipse if that smoke plume I’m seeing from the window keeps growing in our direction! :/

      • Wow Gunta ~ this sounds a little worrisome, sure hope by Monday, the eclipse you all will be relaxed and just enjoying the day. Fire sure has a mind of its own, and this makes it so dangerous. Absolutely wishing you all the best…take care!

  2. Extraordinary, Gunta! Oh boy, I look forward to future ocean posts from you. This one’s amazingly subtle, and I love the half light on the Queen Anne’s lace. But the real treat is that indescribable light out there. I’m glad you were there at that moment!
