Second Beach in July

Another fine day greeted us for an afternoon visit to Second Beach, near La Push, on the Washington coast. With afternoon light and clearing fog, color photography with Black and White output seemed to make sense. This unusual tree-covered sea stack there is generally where I head first, especially with an incoming tide!


The rocks in the sand have been an attraction for years. It's never the same, and the light and waves constantly bring new possibilities every visit.

Advancing Tide and changing light

Tim searching for 5 pieces for the "design" competition. Find and arrange five pieces.

Clearing fog and low clouds revealed beautiful cirrus clouds. The polarizer brought out more constrast and color for this shot down the beach. Looked like a strange creature in the sky. We had to leave before sunset, but it looked like it was going to be a good one!
