Wilson River in the Rain
This bend in the Wilson River is a favorite stop for local fishermen. We spotted them casting along the bank on our drive back from Tillamook a few weeks ago. I photographed the river then, but wasn't happy with how my photos turned out, so this morning I decided to head back and try again. The early weather forecast was not entirely accurate though; I was counting on the rain easing up, but it was coming down pretty hard when I arrived. I keep a large umbrella, rain boots, etc. in the car, so I was prepared to hang out in the rain with the die hard fisherman (there were four this morning). Today's photo is not what I was envisioning, but I do like the rain-swollen river. In my previous attempt there were lots of rocks visible throughout the river, so this one is simpler and more focused.
