Ridge and Clouds in Olympic National Park

This is one of my favorite photographs from a recent trip to Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park, WA. Clear days are fantastic, but I love the atmosphere created by cloudy, foggy, partially obstructed views.

Clouds over Olympic Range from Hurricane Ridge

I visited Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park for the first time back in August – unfortunately many of the trails were closed for management/removal of mountain goats (via helicopter!). Even though I wasn’t able to hike around as much as I may have liked, the small loop trails provided fantastic views of the clearing clouds over the surrounding mountains and hillsides.

Snoqualmie Pass and Clouds

About a month ago, I popped over central Washington for some sunshine. On the way back, rain blowing in off the Pacific was dropping rain, sleet, and snow on Snoqualmie Pass. I had to pull over and photograph the dark trees and rock faces poking through the fog.

Sunlight through Fog

The sun began to shine through the top of the low-hanging cloud/fog being blown over the ridge, shooting beams of light between the tree trunks.

Seattle Skyline, Part 1

A friend asked me for a panorama of the Seattle skyline – I don’t usually photograph cityscapes, but I enjoyed shooting landscapes of the city from the Jose P Rizal Bridge during different times of day and weather (sunny, foggy, morning, sunset, etc.).

Fog over Rialto Beach

In September, I took a trip out to Olympic National Park and spent a day near Mora and Rialto Beach. Late summer rains blew in and cleared out the smoke from forest fires, leaving low-hanging fog over sea stacks along the coast.

Descent from Lakes

After the fog halted our coring efforts for the day, we took a few minutes to walk around in the clouds before heading back to camp (first panorama). The next day, we got up early and headed back over a nearby pass to start our long descent out of the mountains back to the Karnali River valley (second panorama).
