Low Tide Storm
I close my eyes and see the black, I open them again and I see the world, I’ve hidden from fears, and that knife sears, so welcome back to the world. Don’t close your eyes or you will miss the storm, and you will miss what follows after, the beauty. — unknown
This photo is from my archives, taken at Fort Stevens State Park, Oregon, at the mouth of the Columbia River. These tidal pools and wetlands are part of bird and wildlife sanctuaries along the shore of the park. What looks to be a bridge in the distance is actually some sort of breakwater.
I found this view an interesting composition of curves, lines and angles.
Update: Steve Skinner, The Third Half of Life, lives near where this photo was taken and commented with some interesting history on the jetty/breakwater. Be sure and check it out. I definitely learned something today. Thanks, Steve!
