Sunrise along Edison Slough

Edison is a small town in NW Washington, not far from Puget Sound. Located in Skagit County, Edison is just north of the town, Bow, along Chuckanut Drive. Heading west, passing through town the Bayview-Edison Road zig-zags and soon comes to a cause-way type bridge over the slough.

Here is a series of images from sunrise, 11/23/2013 from both sides of the bridge. barn 1em Here is a barn along the way, on Farm To Market Road…

These next 4 images are from just before the sun crested the horizon…

Point of the Arches and Shi Shi Beach, Olympic National Park

I have camped at many places. Sometimes you find a spot with such beauty, such a personality that you fall in love.

Point of the Arches is one of those places for me. When the tide is out the beach stretches beyond the sea stacks. Wandering among the tide pools, excited to see what’s next, I am astounded at how much things change each time I visit, yet stay the same.

The sound of the waves, first muted and now roaring create a soundtrack that calms and thrills. The gulls and wind add their parts to the symphony.

A fire at night and the feel of sand and smoke.

The stars and darkness crashing.

Perched on the edge. Taking it all in.

Cypress Island

Visited Cypress Island this weekend. Took a few shots of the sun, moon and stars. Oh, and water and a few boats, too.

First Beach, Olympic Coast

The pacific coast along the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State has several magnificent beaches. The weather is often unsettled and dramatic. Clouds and wind, crashing waves and stormy seas, its a feast for the senses.

There are several Native American towns there on the coast, Neah Bay to the north and La Push further south, west of the town of Forks. Both have resorts run by the local tribes where you can rent rooms and cabins and enjoy the scenery.

First Beach is part of the La Push Resort. The wide, arcing beach is capped at both ends by towering sea stacks.

It’s a photographers dream!
