It is my 3rd time posting about Olympic National Park. Went there twice within 3 months. My 2nd trip was hoping to have more chances to take some night photography by the beach. Well… You can always make all the plans you want before your trip, but end up always need to work around the weather… Arriving Rialto Beach on the first day, sunset was great. Cloudy, but some amazing light rays!!
The following few days, I tried some waterscapes during the day in the rainforest with my new filters for my Samyang 14mm lens. And at night, I went back to the beach and hoping the skies will clear. But after a few nights, I finally gave up on the beautiful beaches on the 4th nights and headed east hoping for clear night skies. After more than an hour driving through the fog on highway 101. The skies was completely clear when I arrived Lake Crescent. This one taken by the dock at King Storm Ranger Station with some aurora from the north. And yes! That’s me standing on the dock with my headlamp on.
And the following night I went up to Hurricane Hill for some twilight time lapse. It was an amazing dark night. This one below was combined with multiple shots to complete with the entire milkyway arc.
Another fun capture of me while I was waiting for the camera doing it’s time lapse job!
This last one was taken on my way back to Vancouver. Some low clouds/fog during mid-day with the sun shining high up in the sky
Will have more to come from the trip including some new waterscape photos!
