Blade

I’d whined about how heavy my carry-on backpack was so she got me this. I am spoiled!

Swept Away

Swept Away

I made this image at Ruby Beach in the Olympic National Park. This body of water is the Pacific Ocean. And over there – waaay over there – behind the setting sun – lies Southern Russia  and Northern Japan.

It was quickly approaching sundown when I got to the trailhead. I opted to leave some of the gear (including the rubber boots) in the car. The part of the beach where I made this image is quite flat. The wash carries a long way and moves pretty quickly. I was pleased with some of the wave action that I was able to capture. But tromping back to the car in soggy socks and waterlogged hiking boots wasn’t real fun.  😉

Sokha Sunset

leave a comment »

I shot this on Sokha Beach in Sihanoukville (Cambodia), on the Gulf of Thailand. 45 mintues before, things were not looking good as this swarth of clouds obscured the horizon. But, as the minutes ticked down, breaks in the grey began to form…leading to this scene.

I constantly marvel at how I am never alone when shooting sunsets at home in Seattle. What is not evident from this image is the 40-50 townspeople who had gathered to watch the sun go down (they were mostly behind me or just outside the frame). I’ve witnessed this phenomenon time and again in many different locations but every time that it happens, I am in awe of the power of this magical time of day.
