Dawn On Tillamook Bay #2

Posted by
Eric Cousineau (Sherwood Park, Canada) on 28 August 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The name "Tillamook" is Coast Salish word meaning "Land of Many Waters", probably referring to the rivers that enter the bay. At the time of the arrival of Europeans, the area along the coast was inhabited by the Tillamook and other related Coast Salish tribes. Historians believe they entered the area around the year 1400 and Lewis and Clark estimated the population south of the Columbia River along the coast at approximately 2,200.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

Judy aka Ladybug from Brooksville, Florida, United States

Such a gorgeous scene, Eric ... peaceful and calm. I love the sharpness of the foreground as it melds into the many layers of the mountains, but the slight tilt of the horizon bothers my equilibrium. ;D

@Judy aka Ladybug: Thank you very much Judy! I think the horizon is OK....it's probably me that's tilted!!! ;-))
