Cape Kiwanda

One of my favorite spots along pacific highway is Cape Kiwanda. Long beaches and tall dunes attract visitors from all over Oregon. I have a vision for this spot and each time I visit this place I get a little closer but The Grand Landscape is still to come.

Shape of Sand

The Indian name for Antelope Canyon is Tsé bighánílíní, which means ‘the place where water runs through rocks. Handful of sand tossed into a sun ray by our Navajo guide sparkled and twisted in the air creating mystical shapes. Finer sand dust lingered creating vague shifting shapes as if playing a strange charade with us trying to see some recognizable shapes in swirls of sparkling particles.
