Tag: Olympic Peninsula
While on Second Beach last summer, the tide was out. A small tide pool trapped in a sea stack was filled with life – crabs, urchins, and a few starfish.
This is a re-work of a photo I took last August on our trip through the Olympic Peninsula. McLane Creek is a nature preserve some miles outside where we stayed in the area of Olympia, Washington. The trail takes you through rain forest with moss-covered trees, along muddy paths, and onto boardwalks to keep you safe and the plants safe. Here, there is a viewing platform which looks across this pond into the neighboring mountains. We came here as there are beavers rumored to building ponds – sadly, we did not see any – but the beauty of the trail made up for that! My problem with this photo is there is soooooo much green!
The beaches along the Olympic Peninsula are nothing short of amazing. No camera can catch the mood perfectly, but software can help!
While we were there, the sky moved from a foggy opacity, to blue and cloudy, and back. I wanted to capture that in-between time when the sun was breaking through as the fog lightened.
With heat in the 100s for the past week, and more to come, I just want out of here . . . .
I really like making panoramas – somehow,the grandeur of things is better expressed in wide views.
