• Angelic Clouds Over Rialto Beach

    Stunning clouds drifting over dogtooth sea stacks on the Olympic Coast.


    Beach Photography that Expands The Horizon


    It turns out that the middle of October is the perfect time to camp on the beaches of the Olympic National Park. We found this out somewhat by mistake, having gone the park to take fall color photographs in the rainforest, but discovering that the leaves had not turned yet. Not wanting to waste the opportunity, we decided to re-route to the coast.


    We had three days of ideal conditions for camping, and for fine art beach photography. As you can see in this beach picture, the clouds were simply phenomenal. This location is called the Dogtooth Sea Stacks at the north end of Rialto Beach. We pitched camp for the night just into the trees from this amazing viewpoint. We had barely finished setting up when these clouds rolled in and my big chance arrived.

    I rushed down to ocean’s edge to see the Pacific shining like silver to the horizon, the sky a rich cobalt blue, the sand gold in the warm light, and each little fluffy cloud showering down a trail of mist. All together it looked like a magnificent nature angel was appearing in the sky with the sun as her radiant heart. I was mesmerized and in awe. But fortunately, not too mesmerized to set up my camera and capture one of my favorite fine art beach photographs of all time.
