H2O is the chemical formula for water. It describes water broken down into its elements.
For this week’s challenge, share a photo that features H2O; the element of water. Water comes in many different states and guises. From a foggy morning to your favorite watercolor painting, how will you show H2O in a photograph? I look forward to seeing your interpretations. ~ The Daily Post, Lignum Draco
It was perfectly clear when I arrived at the beach at 3:09 that afternoon, and by 4:06, completely socked in. It happened so quickly that it was alarming. I was hoofing it to get back to the car in hopes that I could get back to the highway before the roads became foggy too. You can see the whole thing in pictures here: 60 Minutes in Pacific City.
I loved this giant compass built into the sidewalk at the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. It adds to the charm and delight of the grounds, which we spent a lovely afternoon exploring.
I love, too, that the park/grounds is called the Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area. That sounded funny to me at first, but I later learned that “Outstanding Natural Area” is a designation for areas in the United States that have been little altered by human impact and that meet certain relevance and importance criteria in order to become protected lands. At any rate, we thought it was a beautiful and outstanding area, and we could happily spend many more hours exploring this lovely and delightful spot.
There is so much color, light, and reflection to be seen in a close-up view of sea kelp, ocean bubbles, and sand. I never tire of the ever-changing ocean landscape, and up close I find it even more intriguing.
