It's (one of) the most WONDERFUL TIMES OF THE YEAR!!!!! [youtube.com]

I'm sure I mentioned it before but Haystack Rock is the third largest sea stack in the world. It has been featured in many films, probably most memorably in The Goonies.

It was a beautiful day. Changing right before our eyes.

A belly shot. Because it is my favorite way to view the waves.

Can you believe this?!! My 49ers took down the undefeated Lions. . . until today! This is how I watch football because we don't have television The little red lines indicate yards run, completed passes, etc.

Still, I was literally jumping up and down on our sofa screaming and waving my laptop in the air.

      Really like these, especially #2. You can see the motion of the water & the clouds around the stack.

      I love the delicate tones of the big rock but one small annoyance.... the sloping horizon (it's a pet hate - sorry - really bugs me!) - straighten the horizon and #1 would be a fave. As for the football thing... there is a colleague of mine in London this week and he has extended his stay over next weekend because he has tickets to see the Chicago Somethings play the Tampa Bay Something-Elses at Wembley Stadium - he's from Chicago so this is a big thing.... apparently! :-)

      Wow, the light was just fabulous for shooting!! You captured it beautifully, Feebs, especially in the first two....WOW shots!!! Fantastic angle on the waves....I can feel 'em coming right at me :))) Haha...never seen anyone watch a football game like that....hey, whatever works!!! Haven't been following football this yet, but if I'd watched the game I'd have DEFINITELY been rootin' for the 49ers!

      The first photo just goes to show how much you have improved in your photographic life! Outstanding image - goes to my faves ('cause that was one of my favorite sites on our trip up the Oregon coastline)! These are all excellent, just like the 49ers!!!
