We had been on Agate Beach for two hours or so just waiting for the light to grow magical. The light began to put on a show thirty minutes or so before sunset. As the sun lowered through clouds hovering offshore we had increasingly beautiful conditions. Eventually a cloud bank began to obscure the setting sun, but the high clouds overhead then began to glow pink and orange. Even forty five minutes after sunset when this image was taken the highest clouds closest to the horizon still glowed pink. I framed this shot of Yaquina Head Light in shadow just as the massive light blinked on for part of its two seconds on, two seconds off, two seconds on, fourteen seconds off cycle.
