Blue beach

I had high hopes for shooting the beaches of Olympic National Park. The pictures I saw online looked amazing, the weather was great as I was driving in. Then at about 5 miles away, I drove straight into a thick layer of fog. Then for the next 3~4 days, the coastline stayed like this, and every night it rained. I came here 3 days in a roll, and 2 of those sunsets I didn't even bother taking my camera out. This was the best day, where the sun came out briefly, and the clouds parted a bit.


I decided to keep the cool color temp, to reflect my icy mood towards the Olympic coast. I did end up meeting a cool couple on the beach, and my highlight of the day was just chatting and waiting for sunset with them.
