Canon Beach

This is from my trip to Cannon Beach, Oregon about 5 years. I had the opportunity to photograph some landscapes on the last day after it stopped storming. Unfortunately this negative was severely underexposed and was unprintable in the darkroom. I gave up trying to print it and the negative actually ended up on the floor of my darkroom for several days before I picked it up. It became severely scratched but for some reason I kept it.

I ended up scanning the negative about a year ago and was able to recover enough density and fix all the scratched to make this image.
