Birthday Getaway to Cannon Beach

September every year is a month-long celebration of Mai’s birthday. We always take a few days to go somewhere. Last year it was to Lee Vining-Mono Lake, Yosemite and the Eastern Sierra. This year we headed north in the Jeep to Cannon Beach a the tippy top of the Oregon coast..

This gallery contains the best photos from that road trip. Cannon Beach and the California redwoods are the highlights.  At the end of the trip we drove through the coastal redwoods in Northern California. Mai couldn’t wait to get up on that fallen log to do the Tree Pose for me. You might also be interested to learn that these are the tallest trees on earth. Many grow well over 300 feet tall.

If you’re into it and want to see these photos full screen, go to the full Cannon Beach Road Trip gallery. Then click on any one of the phtots and then hit the “slideshow” button on the right.  Believe me, it’s worth it viewing photos full screen without any visual distractions at all!  When I see a nice photo on Google+, or anywhere online, that looks like a nice piece of art, I’ll almost always take the time to go full with it and take it in fully.

Book Cover-The Divorced Mom’s Guide to Dating

At the time we took this photo of Mai sitting on Cannon Beach, we had no idea that it would eventually become the cover of her latest best-selling book, The Divorced Mom’s Guide to Dating!”  She’s a master coach and relationship expert and works with clients around the world.

      Margarita I’m happy that you stopped to say so. Much appreciated! I feel the photo captures what an amazing ambiance I experienced at Cannon Beach. Mystical fog, turbulent surf, stunning light, and there are those picturesque seagulls everywhere too. Cheers!

    WOW! My favorites are the slow shutter ones, are you using ND filters to create the effect or image stacking?

      I have a couple of ND filters that I’ll use for smoothing water. Sometimes I’ll use motion blur in post too. The Iphone shot of haystack rock was done that way.
