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.

Rialto Beach Bulb Exposures, Part 1

Back in April, I spent a couple of days backpacking along the Pacific coast near Rialto Beach in Olympic National Park, WA. I already want to go back- rocky coastline full of tide pools, sea stacks, black sands, and bleached trees. More ND/bulb exposures soon!

Hoh Rainforest Stream, 2017

Nearly 10 years ago, I took a rainy solo backpacking trip up the Hoh River in Olympic National Park. I remember photographing a stream surrounded by emerald green ferns and hanging moss. Late last summer, I hiked up the same trail along the Hoh River and tried to photograph the same subject (but from a new perspective, a decade later). Overcast conditions again provided diffuse light that allowed for even lighting during longer exposures.
