small delta….

I know, not a well staged image. Glaring light (shooting into the sun), washed out the image. But, this was a mesmerizing spot. Perhaps fifteen feet across, the water emerged from a sand dune to the left (out of sight) and moved toward a river to the right (out of sight). The resultant ongoing sculpting was, for me, fascinating.

Patience

The heron stands still as the cold air blows in off the Pacific. Patience seems in abundance. Nothing but raindrops and the wind seems to disturb the surface, save for a sea lion in the distance. I watch, I wait, my patience doesn’t match the heron’s.

Oregon’s Siletz Bay: At the Mouth

Yesterday, I stood at the mouth of Siletz Bay (Oregon) where Chinook and Coho Salmon were surging into the bay from the Pacific Ocean. The weather was balmy. Not a hint of rain. Further into the tidewaters of local rivers the salmon are kegged up, waiting to move upriver to spawn. Rain is needed to flush the fish upward out of the tidewaters.

But, the fishing was good yesterday right at the mouth of Siletz Bay. The surf pounding just off the mouth of the bay was beautiful. The quieter water, just inside the mouth, was teaming with surging salmon.
