The Wild Coast - Olympic National Park, Washington
This shot came as the 96% moon rose from the east just out of the top lefthand side of this picture's frame. The moon illuminated the entire landscape and made the pacific ocean shine and glitter in the darkness of the night. Such an awesome sight to see, and easily one of my favorite shoots of the season thus far.
Over the past month I've spent most of my time exploring Olympic National Park. A few weeks ago I camped out down by those sea stacks by the little outcrop of logs and beach( seen in the photo ) on my return from 3 day camping trip up the parks "wild coast". I guess they call it the wild coast because there aren't any trails, or campsites. You won't find many people out there but the landscapes are fantastic.
Last night on a return trip from the Rain forest I decided to camp at the same spot again trying to get some nice sunrise or sunset light which seems almost impossible at this location. Finally I got something usable. Coming back here reminded me I had this shot sitting on my computer..
