A Quick Trip up the Oregon Coast

Foggy Oregon rock.
Took a quick trip up to the Oregon coast. I had certain places to check off my photography list in mind for this trip, but the weather just wouldn't cooperate. Normally a little fog wouldn't deter me, but the main thing I wanted to shoot wasn't just in fog it was invisible in the fog. My best shot of my main attraction was a barely discernible outline in the fog. So this is the runner up shot, much closer to shore and I happen to catch it with a little less fog. It's one of many giant "natural bridge" like rock formations in Harris Beach State Park.

Same Rock, with a little action
I am curious how that opening came to be, and I'm sure it makes for some great photos with bigger waves crashing through. This dinky wave was all I could get. And apparently I wasn't the only one not impressed.

Brown Pelican, not impressed
This guy was maybe the most impressive, and drew quite the crowd to photograph him. I wanted to get closer, which I thought I could do, but since there was a big crowd I didn't want to be the guy that scares him off. So an aggressive crop will have to do.

Bonus Shot

With my Moto X I use Google+ to backup all of my photos that it takes. I end up taking shots with the Moto X for quick shares and to use in assigning location information to the shots taken with my G3. The nice thing about using the Auto Backup feature in Google+ is it will sometimes gift you with edited shots, or Auto Awesome shots, if you have shots that fit the criteria.

I'm not going to say that this is an edit I would have done myself, but it does give a nice dreamy feel to it, and made for a quick share that I didn't have to do anything get.
