Short Beach is a 1,000-meter stretch of beach on the northern Oregon Coast in the United States. It is not named for its length. Locals guess that both the beach and the creek that runs onto it—Short Creek, several miles in length—were named after an early resident of the area.

I adore the lower 2/3 of the image - the color and clarity of those gentle waves. In the upper third, I'm guess that is mist rising in the sunlight.

I also love the lower 2/3 but the houses in the sun gives the dimension to the picture. Great one you did there
