17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Historical Haystack Rock. Cannon Beach, Oregon

Beautiful Haystack rock in August. Although it may look "overcast" it was actual smoke from 100's of wildfires during that time. Many families and couples enjoying the pure beauty of such a historical site. You can see little black dots in the sky that may look like markings but is actual birds. The contrast and reflection from the ocean and sand to the rock is impactful in itself.
