Second Beach, Olympic National Park, 2012

Second Beach, Olympic National Park, 2012

I made this image earlier this summer, on a trip out to the Olympic National Park with Sai and Ed. On this day, we had planned to get to the beach with plenty of time to set up for sunset. But, as luck would have it, it turned out to be one of those typical Northwest ends-of-the-day, with a thick band of clouds obliterating the horizon. I made it onto the beach just in time to catch this scene, with the rays of the sinking sun illuminating the ribbon of clouds that had come sweeping down the coastline.

4/5 second at f/13, ISO 200. Nikon D800E + Nikkor AF-S 24-120mm f/4.

  1. Call it serendipity but the sweep of clouds make the shot. Great work. Ray!

    • Thanks, Anil! Truth be told, there was dilly-dallying in the woods on the way down to the beach 😉 But given the sky, I don’t think it made a difference.

  5. Very nice – I love that beach, but have not been for many years now. Will have to make a trip sometime, with sunset in the plans.

    • Thank you! One of my most favorite things to do is to watch sunrise or sunset from a beach, regardless of whether I have my camera or not.
