Glorious end of a day in May

Off the coast of Manzanita, Oregon. It is late May and the sun is pretty far North already.

Dunes Egret

This is an updated version of a composite image I started working on in August 2004!

To answer some questions that usually come up:

* Yes, the setting is in the sand dunes near Coos Bay, Oregon…
* Yes, there is a real wetland in the sand dunes. And…
* Yes, I did see this great white Egret there. But…
* No, I didn’t see everything together at one time, as shown here, except… in my mind.
* And now you see what I saw with my mind’s eye, too
