The Olympic Peninsula–if I can still say that without upsetting the IOC

One of my favourite places has to be the Olympic Peninsula, Washington State – with very many great photo opportunities.  Here are a couple from a visit earlier this year – sunset at Ruby Beach and sunrise at Crescent Lake.

I keep wanting to straighten the horizon on this one – but just an optical illusion with the rest of the picture it is actually perfectly horizontal!

The mist either makes or breaks a sunrise shot – covered up the best of the mountains but does give a wonderful atmosphere.  Must get a neutral density filter to give a few more options for long exposure rather than just stopping down.

Now I’ll just wait for the cease and desist letter from the IOC…
