Cannon Beach



Cannon Beach


Oregon, 2023


Limited edition fine art print of 6 – Cannon Beach in the Pacific Northwest absolutely lit up for me at sunset. I sprinted down the long beach after just finishing dinner and two beers, terrible idea. But I had to capture what was unfolding in front of us.

I noticed a break in the sky right at the horizon as we ordered our meal. Painstakingly, I sat there and could see the sun creeping through the thick gray clouds. Once the sun hit the horizon, I knew it was going to create a light show. I slammed my fish and chips, pounded my IPA, and took off sprinting for over a mile in hiking boots to grab the panoramic you see here. Getting the right shot isn’t always pretty, but it’s always worth it. Photo © copyright by Derek Nielsen.
