January on the Oregon coast

Postby G5Pontiac » 01 Feb 2008, 01:16

The beach and driving along the ocean are marvelous in the summer. But, there are more dramatic scenes in the winter. The summer is yum yum, but the ocean declares a different character in winter. I took these two pictures on Cape Foul Weather today, and although they are mundane for here, I still like common winter scenes like this between the rain squalls.

Love your pictures G5. I like the name Cape Foul Weather - it describes so many coastal spots on both coasts!

Just looking at your pictures makes me want to grab the boat out of storage and head out.....

I've only been down the Oregon coast a few times, but I can't think of anyplace I've been that is more picturesque, besides maybe the Aleutian Islands. (Edit- ok, not more so but on par). Even if the weather is wretched and the rain is coming at you sideways, the scenery is absolutely beautiful. The Washington coast is pretty, but the Oregon coast has us beat in the breathtaking view department.

All my pictures on this site, including those ocean pictures evaporated. I guess the image download site failed. http://bf.gaff.cc/ It's not there anymore.

I can still see your pictures in this thread and note they are hosted on the gaff server.

It may be prudent to find another hosting service in that I've tried contacting the upload tool developer for upadates, but have not received any response yet. For the time being, we are recommending this procedure:

They're back. Evidently the gaff server was down for awhile; and I see that the site must be up in order for the pictures to remain here. Thank you, Yogi, and I'll try the method that you suggest.

They are really breathtaking pictures, especially the first one! I love how the sun shines down through the clouds on an otherwise dark ocean!
