I first scouted out this location at Short Sands Beach in Oswald West State Park back in Sep 2017 during my second trip to the Manzanita/Cannon Beach area. At the time it was high tide and still pretty dry with barely any water flowing down. I knew there was some potential here for the rainy season though, so I made my return trip in Jan 2018 during a beautiful sunny day that coincided with the sunset. Luckily I had just enough room to fit the waterfall and sun in the shot and it all came together like I had hoped.
