Good Bye To Summer


Jetty Bay (1 of 1)

I made this image on October 4th around 6 PM while the temperature was a balmy sixty-eight degrees.  The sun was rapidly sinking in the western sky while it painted the old jetty railroad trestle with its final light for the day.  The trestle once extended nearly five mile from shore into the roaring waters of the Pacific Ocean.  It was from these tracks that train cars delivered the massive rocks that built the jetty that protects the mouth of the Columbia River.  

It was the end to a perfect day, weather wise and we are unlikely to see a repeat until late June.
