Spanish Director Nacho Gayan focuses his camera on breaking waves near Harris Beach State Park Friday as part of a commercial he and his crew are filming for a power company in Spain.

The commercials theme is man working with nature and will feature images taken throughout the United States, including the Oregon Coast, Alaska, the Grand Canyon and Yosemite.

We came to America for the diversity of landscape, Gayan said. We dont have waves and rocks like this in Spain.
