This may be the first time I saw pelicans on the beach in Oregon. If not, it was at least the first time I photographed them. I took these pictures near the Peter Iredale, but further north on the beach in Warrenton.
They were beautiful in the golden sunset. What more is there to say? One sees seagulls all the time, but pelicans are big with such interesting shapes. It was a novelty, for sure.
Here the light is almost gone. The gold has faded away, and a few pelicans are left in the twilight.
