Face Rock is the famous icon of Bandon State Beach in Souther Oregon.  It sits amongst many wildly shaped sea stacks on an outstanding wide sandy beach.  To capture this scene, I waited for the sun to glance across the face at a slight angle at about 10am.  Usually this is not a great time of day for dramatic light on the landscape but with dark clouds behind, a hole opened in the clouds and illuminted the rock and beach for just a few minutes.
