Winter is the time for drama on the Oregon Coast. We’ve had lots of rain, ball snow, and pea-sized hail. We stayed a couple of days at the Silver Sands Motel in Rockaway Beach. One of the great things about our accommodations was that our rooms looked out onto the Pacific Ocean. Just behind the hotel, a sand dune separated us from Rockaway Beach. One afternoon, I walked over the sand dune onto the beach as this squall approached. It was a sample of the kind of weather soon to come. In the distance at lower right, the Twin Rocks sea stacks, south of Rockaway Beach. Nikon Z6, FTZ, 70-200mm f/4.
