Haystack Rock Wave

I love this photo of Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach Oregon; although Haystack Rock is not visible; it would be on the left. This is a closeup photo showing some of the rocks lying west and northwest of the haystack; with a splashing wave. The seagull seems unperturbed as he sits quietly and seems to be observing the wave without any anxiety at all. A bit of a metaphor for life; if we could be like the seagull and remain calm while the waves and storms of life are beating upon our doorstep.
