I spent two days getting hammered by sea spray, rain, and hail that comes with standing in a winter storm on the Oregon coast. But in between all that, I got to see these monster waves break hundreds of feet hight. For scale, the top of the cliff where the people are standing is 100 feet high.

What I noticed from my limited experience shooting these waves is there’s really two main things that create interest in a Shore Acres Wave photograph: form and power. Sometimes there was a huge volume of water but with no form. And sometimes there was a beautiful shape to the splash, but no volume. Getting both at the time same time was more of a challenge but creates the most visually interesting photograph.

I also liked these conditions because the blue patch of sky and the low December sun side lit the wave perfectly, really driving home a nice contrast and separation.

I Just Fledged !!!!!!!!!! by judylynn

This is an image of a young juvenile great horned owl that had just fledged. We had watched him since the time that he hatched and was all white right through till he fledged. I was amazed as he took it step by step. First leaving the nest and going out on a limb later to return to the nest and then the next day he ventured further until finally he flew to another tree. It was a wonderful experience !!

Wishing you all a good night and a blessed one !!!

Cape buffalo (Syncerus caffer) by EtienneOosthuizen


Caught these two bulls on the side of the herd busy fighting, it started lightly but soon turned rather aggressive, the backlit dust helps create a wonder full mood of intensity
