Washington

A walk along Second Beach

When I visited Washington state’s Olympic National Park in April, I visited Second Beach on one of the afternoons.  This was one of the first photographs after I exited the trail onto the beach.  Shooting into the sun silhouetted most of the elements which helped to isolate these two people as they walked near the water.


Sea spray and the setting sun

 

I visited Second Beach on the Olympic Peninsula in April.  It was my first visit to this picturesque stretch of the Pacific Northwest.  Heavy waves rolled in with sunset and I had a great time framing them amid the sea stacks, along the beach and against the rocks.  When the sun was sinking into the water, one wave exploded inside the keyhole.  The silhouette of the spray had me imagining figures and forms.  It was a cool moment to recall a great evening on the ocean.
