Photographing on the Oregon Coast is always an adventure. You make the two-hour trek to the beach and hope for the best. Typically the biggest obstacle is the wind but at the Oregon Coast it can also be rain and cold even in the middle of summer. My last trip to Manzanita, Oregon was for a series of Ballet dancers on the Beach. I teamed up with our local Ballet Studio for this adventure. We booked the trip in the middle of summer and yet the day we were to take photos it rained. As in poured down rain ALL DAY LONG. So much planning and organizing went into this and the rain through quite the wrench in our day. We held out though and waited until about 6 pm where we finally decided to give it a go so the day was not a complete waste. Armed with umbrellas we headed down to the beach.
