Southwest from the South Jetty, mouth of the Columbia River by Robert Adams (1990)

The photograph titled “Southwest from the South Jetty, mouth of the Columbia River” was captured by the artist Robert Adams in the year 1990. This image depicts a dynamic and tumultuous scene of the sea at the mouth of the Columbia River, viewed from the South Jetty. The sea appears rough, with turbulent waves and frothy water. The sky above is partly cloudy, suggestive of a dramatic atmosphere often associated with coastal weather. There is a sense of motion and raw natural power in the image, captured in black and white, which emphasizes the textures and contrasts of the scene. The horizon is visible in the distance, separating the sky from the sea, and there is a strong interplay of light and shadow throughout the composition.
