As I am writing this, we are entering the last third of our #RoadTrip2021 traveling through Oregon. This year, we focused on a lot of scenic drives. Highway 101 on the west coast is one such drive with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean along the Oregon coast. This viewpoint shot was captured a few miles north of Florence Oregon.
A few moments after this image was taken, just to the right of the image above, we noticed a spray of water and saw a dark shape under the surface. Watching that spot, we again saw the unmistakable spray of a whale’s blowhole. The whale was far too distant for me to capture a cell phone image, and my camera was tucked away at that moment. An opportunity missed.
The image was captured with my Samsung S20U cell phone, processed in Lightroom, and tweaked in Luminar AI. For a closer view, click on the image to check it out in HD on my Flickr site.
I encourage fellow bloggers to create their own Cellpic Sunday posts. I never have a specific topic for this feature, and the only rules are that the photo must be captured with a cell phone, iPad, or another mobile device… If you have an image from a drone, that’s acceptable as well. The second rule is to link your challenge-response to this post or leave a comment here with a link to your post in the comment.
