Wordless Wednesday: The Ever Changing Sunsets

One of the most majestic things about sunsets is that they are always changing. From one day to the next, from one moment to the next, there is stunning beauty and a timeless feel. I love the challenge of capturing something that utterly captivates me and how each time I set out to photograph it is a unique experience. These photos are two different sunsets - one on Friday at Birch Bay in northern Washington and one from Saturday in Lincoln City, Oregon on Siletz Bay.

"I love to be here at the beach to watch the sunset - the greatest performance of Nature.  Like in a theater, but it’s free." - Gina De Gorna
