2014, Day 162 - Wrecked

This is what remains of the Peter Iredale which ran aground on October 25th, 1906.  It has been over a century and the skeleton still remains on the beach.  Fortunately when the ship was wrecked not a single life was lost so despite the ominous appearance there was a silver lining.

I headed out this evening with Brian and Nicole to meet up with Brian and Craig at the beach.  While there were clouds in the sky they were heavy and the light was very flat.  For the first hour there was nothing remarkable about the beach, it was a normal dreary day at the Oregon Coast.  Then, as the sun set, we got a sliver of color on the horizon.  Minutes passed the the sky began to change and more color blossomed.  We didn't have very long to get our shots but we certainly did and I am so excited about what we witnessed that I've stayed up until the early hours of the morning to share a single image.
