Jetty View*

This image was captured on the south jetty at Fort Stevens State Park on the Oregon coast.

From my rocky perch I sat with my camera and watched the water pound the rocks under a dreary sky. The gray light brought out the colors and shading of the rocks along the jetty. It also highlighted the white foam on the waves.

In this image I tried to bring out the subtle qualities of the light in the Pacific Northwest. As I study the picture now I think it might better be titled "100 Shades of Gray".
