Photographer: Jay Galvin

Photo taken: Oct. 24, 2021, at Cape Disappointment lighthouse

Photographer’s description: “Bomb cyclone hitting the coast. 50 mph winds and sideways rain. Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. Canon 70-200MM f/2.8 IS lens. Taken at high tide.”

Critique: “There is a lot of energy in this photo. It takes you right into the storm and places you amid the wind and waves, even while the lighthouse sits centered like a silent, stoic sentinel. Another juxtaposition I like is the blue sky in the background as the storm rages right in front of us. Thanks for sharing this interesting photo!”
