Olympic Coast Soothing Sunset
The long exposure used to capture this PNW beach photograph creates soothing converging lines leading the eye to the towering sea stacks in the sunset.
Beach Photography that Expands the Horizon
The sunset was over, and it was getting dark. Did that stop me from creating fine art beach photographs? No way. Each sunset is different, but most of the time there is still light in the sky for a full hour after the sun sets, and the blue and purple colors that are visible toward the end make a beautiful contrast to the warm tones that hover near the horizon. On more than one occasion, doing beach photography this long after sunset has got my car locked in the parking lot of a closed State Park or National Park, but not this night. We had made a long and challenging trek to reach this isolated beach on the Olympic Wilderness Coast, and I only had 100 yards to stroll back to my tent when I was finished taking PNW beach photographs.
It being so dark, my shutter speed was very long. Probably over a second, unlike most daytime shots which are under 1/100th of a second. This long exposure made the crashing in and retreating waves paint strokes of light and color across my digital camera’s sensor. The effect is beach photography art that looks more like other types of fine art – watercolors or pastels. The strong and clear cloud formations in the top of the frame melt into a soothing, psychedelic dream in the lower half of this vibrant Pacific Northwest beach photography art print.
