Sky Colors

in #photography5 years ago

Some sunset pictures taken at Cape Disappointment State Park near the area where the Colombia river empties into the the Pacific ocean.

The view down the beach towards the lighthouse. The clouds almost look like a dragon blowing pretty colored clouds towards the sunset:

The orange sun is just setting above the ocean. The waves here are much bigger than the ones that I am used to in the Puget Sound. They are not as big as they can get down the coast towards the south though.

There’s lots of beach sand to see at low tide, when looking straight at the sunset:

This is a panorama photo that was made from the others by Google Photos. I like the way the sky colors look and you can get a feel for how the crowd felt. It was a just wonderful sunset.

It was a really fun camping trip and these were some of the first photos that I took just after arriving at the camp. I will post more photos of the trip.

Thanks for reading! I always value your support and comments. The pictures were taken by me with my Galaxy S9+ with some modifications done in the digital darkroom on the last picture by Google Photos.


Cool shots! We both featured sun shots in our posts. You must of been think subconsciously of the solstice lol. I really would love to metal detect that beach!!! Great shots as always.

It is interesting that you mentioned metal detection, because this beach really sparkles. There are a few people that are mining for gold in the darker sand on it. I think maybe the gold is being washed down from the Colombia river and deposited by the waves on the beach but I'm not sure about it.

Oh you can find gold with a metal detector, usually the round kind sometimes with diamonds lol. But yeah there is a whole community on YouTube that does gold panning or building and using gold sluice boxes. Some guys really get bit hard by the gold bug. They even do it here! The thinking is some of the glaciers brought down that Canadian gold. I will admit to panning a time or two. Fun way to pass the time.

Wow! such a wonderful sky photography. I love your post. Really amazing click. Thank you for sharing with us " Best of luck.

Nice photography I have ever seen using the camera phone @lightsplasher why now @lightsplasher rarely post if you are sibik on holiday so rarely make a post. I always wait to post my sodara @lightsplasher

I get busy doing other stuff plus I don't always have access to the Internet so sometimes I don't post much.

Yes @lightsplasher, hope you are healthy always and I look forward to your next ponstingan, teimakasih @lightsplasher

Wonderful collection of shots, LS:) I have no idea where the Cape got its name with Vistas like these. They were all gorgeous but that last shot was truly superb:) Truly. Hope you are having in a wonderful day:):):)

Thank you much. :) I think the Cape got its name from an early explorer who was 'disappointed' that it wasn't the mouth of the giant river he was trying to find. Apparently the area is very difficult to navigate, but the river he was looking for was there.

Perhaps a rename is in order:)

a very enjoyable trip I really like the sunset, with the light radiance oranyo then look very beautiful in upuk the sky to the west, I really like this photo


Thank you, that photo I really like too. There is one person on the beach with their arms out that expresses a lot of how I felt at the time.

yes I can understand your feelings my buddy, I also really liked the view of the beach and the sunset, I was just yesterday coming home from vacation, and his picture I have postingkan this afternoon hopefully my friend @lightsplasher want to see my post thanks

Wow excellent photography experience and very very really look sky.
Great photography sir.
Thanks @lightsplasher
Have a great day

Thanks @goldcoin have a wonderful one. :)

Some beautiful sunsets. I live in North Idaho and it has been a long time since I was near where you took these. maybe as I did deeper into retirement I can get to the coastal area of Washington and Oregon. So much beauty in the Pacific Northwest. Thank you for sharing.

If you want to know how I feel when watching this, the answer is I'm very happy and I really enjoy this. Can you teach me how to aim properly?

Thank you, I'm happy that the pictures made you happy. There are many different tutorials on photography and composition on the net, I would start by reading about photography. I'm still very much learning about things and just go by my own feel about how to aim properly. It helps to take a lot of pictures in hopes that some come out okay and you can learn a lot by just trying out different things.

What a beautiful sight, I followed you, upvote and resteem
