I'm finally starting to print this year's winter ice. Previously I've been editing and processing these in Lightroom/Photoshop. The planning for next year is in the works so it's time to get these out.
This was the last shot of the day on MLK Day. The temperature was in the 30's in the morning and it later warmed up to about 60 over the next 2 days. This year we had several freeze/melt cycles, just not a very stable winter. I would not be surprised by a minimal winter here again for this coming season.

Seed Heads at 6400+ feet
The National Park staff was excellent everywhere in Washington. Friendly, helpful and full of knowledge regarding the trails and parks. As the skies were smoky from the wildfires in BC and Idaho, a recommendation was made to view the wildflowers in the Sunrise area of Mt. Rainier. That's how I came across these Seed Heads.

This was shot late morning, around 10am. We only did a short one hour hike as we wanted to get over to the beaches. The forests were on the dry side for a rain forest and the wildfire danger was rated high in the Olympic. We would soon be seeing the smoke from the BC wildfires over the next several days.

Ruby Beach. August 19, 2018. 12:42 pm
We did not get down to Ruby Beach until noon. This is around low tide. High tide was around 7ish in the morning and evening. From low to high here the change is 4-5 feet. I'm guessing that this sea stack is surrounded by water at high tide. I'm also thinking of the possibilities.

Rialto Beach. August 18, 2018
We left Vancouver at 9am, hoping to arrive on the Olympic Peninsula early afternoon. With long delays at customs and the ferry, we did not get to the ocean side until early evening. I had originally planned to shoot Ruby Beach but out lateness forced a detour to Rialto instead. Eva was excellent with the navigating and we drove through back roads bringing us towards La Push and Rialto.
We were immediately aware that we were in a place of mystery. Foggy atmosphere, cool temps in the 50's and the light was leaving us. I started looking and my eyes became happy.
