This photograph was taken on my second visit to the Oregon coast. The morning started out gray and overcast and dull and dreary. Sunrise was scheduled for around 6:15 that day but the twilight hour was overcast with thick gray, dull, dreary fog. To my amazement, as the sun cleared the horizon, a pinkish hue engulfed the entire shoreline. That in combination with the lack of large waves made for a photograph not to be missed.
