Beautiful Calla (Zantedeschia aethiopica) - have fond memories of seeing these in the Cape coast in South Africa.

You're fortunate to have them in Oregon as well.

Lovely image.

Wonderful portrait of this beautiful plant in a poetic place.

A very nice composition, Dan. I love how the Calla flower is cupping the rock formation.

Brilliant use of the foreground Calla Lilies to make the absolute best of this lovely scene, Dan!

I like the foreground flowers and the way you created depth. I've never been out there and was a little surprised to see them growing so close to the ocean. One thought would be to put the point of view a little higher to create some space between the high flower and sea stack. Maybe you did. It's a great idea and nice composition!
