Snow On The Beach

This scene is quite rare. It almost never snows at the coast. I was amazed to see it and I talked to a local in Florence, Oregon who had never seen it right on the beach either.

  1. This is really something! I'm amazed it would snow at sea level. And you were there to get it, of course. :) Nita

  2. Amazing is the word for it. As a kid we camped at Honeyman State Park right outside of Florence. I never heard of i snowing there. So glad you got the proof right there. The sky is so clear and blue but it must have been cold for the snow to stay.

  6. Faye, i got to see snow on the beach at Sunset Beach (near Coos Bay) a couple of years ago. I'm from the SoCal beaches, so at first i really had no way to process what i was seeing. It didn't make any sense! So now that's a phrase i use when i'm having trouble "finding a place to put something" so to speak.

    I bugged all my Coos Bay friends to get out and get some pictures of the snow there for me but none did, but thank you for getting one from Florence!

    Oh.. and there was snow on the SoCal beaches yesterday- in Malibu!

  7. cela est surprenant de voir une plage avec de la neige. on pourrait croire une plage avec un champs de marguerire. belle photo et belle vue.


    that is surprising to see a beach with snow. one could believe a beach with fields of marguerire. beautiful photograph and beautiful sight.

  10. Great photo.
    A snow is kind of mismatch with Bluse sky and sea to me.
    Wonderful landscape!

  11. I agree with Ben... the snow doesn't look right against the seascape, but then that creates a very different composition.

    You certainly like the cold weather Faye!!!

  12. Yes, this is extraordinary, both in content and composition! A magical moment. How lucky to have witnessed it with your very eyes. Thank you.

  13. What a wonderful image, Faye! As Karen says, it could be Newfoundland or down east somewhere. I haven't been to Newfoundland but have been to the other provinces down east.

    Love the colours in this.
