In 2007, we vacationed in Oceanside, Oregon, and stayed at a rental house called the Blue Sea Cottage. It was a cozy place to be with a great view of the ocean, and sometimes that view looked like this for long spells of time, with the rain driving straight at us off the stormy gray sea! When I took this photo, I was struck by how much the image through the rain-streaked window looked like one that had been photoshopped with a fancy filter. I assure you, this image is SOOC--Straight Out Of the Camera, with no editing involved. I think it makes a great natural painting.
