Stole away from the family on a trip to Olympic National Park on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, in order to get some shots of the sunset at Lake Crescent. The view from Lake Crescent Lodge is perfect for this, as it has a view looking almost due west down the valley that holds the lake, and continues on past towards Forks (thar be Vampires).
Proving how seasonal tourist season really is, the beach area was largely abandoned on a beautiful evening. These seats sat empty, their views not encumbered by the posteriors anyone sitting in them. ;)
