Sunset at Depoe Bay, Oregon lights the sky purple as if it is on fire. I stopped along the seawall to watch the sunset and with my tripod set up was able to catch this wonderful shot as the sun went behind a stormy cloud formation. Only minutes later the sea and shore were dull and fading as night descended.
I love how the light picks out the rocks and seagulls near the sea wall. The view gradually fades into the vast Pacific Ocean and I wondered about ships leaving the tiny port of Depoe Bay and venturing out sea.
