Heart of the Ocean . After our Thanksgiving trip and Christmas trip, I decided to head back to the ocean again this past long weekend to practice more on my seascape photography skill. I think my expectation for a good seascape picture was unreasonably high after seeing so many shot from @shainblumphotography 😂 . Besides hoping for good light and cloud, I limit myself to only shot with a wide-angle lens and in quest of finding good foreground for portrait shot to create depth. Of my 3 afternoons in the coastline of Olympic National Park, two of which have no sun at all during sunset. And my top choice Rialto Beach got a road closure that I wasn't aware of until I got there. Fortunately, Second Beach is nearby and I walked away with some good photo there. 😁 . And to share a couple of learnings from previous trips that make this one much more enjoyable: (1) Waterboot and rain pants are essential to keep my foot warm and dry (2) A lightweight tripod is easier to manage when climbing on those rocks and trying out different composition (3) Extend the thinnest section, and stick as much of that part into the sand so that when waves come, it is very stable. . #secondbeach#lapush#olympicnationalpark#rialtobeach title="@pnw_compass" href="/pnw_compass" class="media-footer__link">@pnw_compass#pnw_compass#pnw#pnwonderland#pacificnorthwest#20190120

Rialto Beach, Forks, Washington.

The Washington State coastline is an emergent
Rialto Beach, Forks, Washington. The Washington State coastline is an emergent shoreline, which means it experiences relative sea level drop--relative in that it's not actual sea level drop, but actually a continuing crustal rebound (the LAND is rising) from glaciers melting away from the last ice age (like what happens to a mattress when go to from sitting down on it to standing up). The relative sea level drop means the coastal land becomes more and more exposed to the elements, allowing for rapid erosion. This creates the sharp, rocky coastal features, like sea stacks and sea arches. . Most of the rocks around the coast of Washington State are a mix between 1. Ancient sea floor mudstones; 2. Igneous basalt from the ocean floor; and 3. Glacial deposits from the last ice age. . . . . . . . . #rialto#rialtobeach#washington#washingtonstate#olympicpeninsula#olympicnationalpark#westcoast#beach#lapush#forks#geology#geologist#geologyrocks#travel#america#pnw

It is an absolute downpour in Port Angeles right now. When there are these torrential rains at sea-level, can you imagine scene atop the Olympic Mountains right now? In a national geography documentary, the interior of the Olympic Mountain range was compared to Siberia. And yet, 17 miles from the Olympics sits temperate Port Angeles with mild temperatures year round. Microclimates and mountains go hand in hand. Thank you 📸: @dan_straats for sharing your incredible capture of winter’s power in the Olympics 🏔 #HikeOlympic

Exhilarating! First word that comes to mind when it’s just pretty much you up on the mountain, you don’t see anyone in sight. Just you, the sound of melting ice breaking away once in a while and your labored breathing. I was blessed with this rare moment yesterday when I set out on a solo trail run at 6:35 am in the dark at the base of this mountain. I changed into my hiking boots & crampons about midway up when I hit snow with slippery sections. I passed a group of guys that started at upper trailhead before hitting deep snow. It didn’t take long to put some distance between myself and them. I took a long break from the spot where I took this picture. Just soaked in the constant changing view below me with the clouds rolling in rapidly. Ate my pb&j sandwich, apple, and a banana. Finally the group met me. They were taken back my adventurous spirit, and my pace. I politely declined their generous invitation to climb up to the summit with them. I wasn’t equipped adequately to climb up the steep chute up the summit and I didn’t want to be sorry for making a risky decision. #earlyrise#trailrunning#trailrun#run#running#runningmotivation#mountains#mountainrunning#hiking#hikingadventures#solohiking#nativewomenrunning#optoutside#outdoors#mountainlover#olympicnationalpark

Time. Sometimes it seems to move fast and other times it feels slow. It is hard to believe that it has been 4 months since these photos were captured! I can remember this day so distinctly. I am so grateful for having spent this particular day navigating off-trail through the Bailey Range with my fellow Wonder Women!⛰ We got lost. We rumbled and we tumbled through the brush. And we found our way together.

Trato de seguir avanzado y levantándome de cada caída, aunque aveces el camino se torne tosco y sienta aveces que me desvanesga y me estanque, procuro mantener todos los demonios en mi cabeza bajo control porque se que realmente son los únicos obstáculos que no me dejan avanzar. 📸 por @miriamlbg#rainforest#olympicnationalpark#washington#naturephotography#naturelovers#nature#forrest#outdoorphotography#outdoors#goexplore#explore#roadtrip#exploremore#adventure#stayandwander#hiking#hikingculture#landscape#northwest#adventuretime

The combo of mist, low-angle light, and geological oddity made Point of the Arches one of the more surreal places I've ever been. I felt like I stepped into another world, something out of a fantasy novel or video game.

The run up to board day is just as good as the trip home. The last run is so bitter sweet. To be able to just appreciate the day or couple hours you had. The accomplishment of the fun you just had being way better then any day at work, or almost any day down in the low lands. When you finally strip down and get in the car, two hours till home and traffic can’t even bring you down from the good vibes! A sense of freedom from thinking about the view from top of tye, sense of freedom when night falls and you zone out to the sound of snow under your board and focusing on the lit areas the light reflects off the snow. No better days.• • • • • • #mountains#utah#wasatchmountains#lake#utahstate#saltlakecity#wildwest#west#ski #snowboard#earthday#lakecrescent#moab#redrocks#rockformations#spring#olympicnationalpark#tulip#tulipfestival#skagitvalleytulipfestival#stevenspass#skiresort#vancouver#vancouverbc#britishcolumbia#springtime#whistlerblackcomb#washingtonstate#whitepass

josephrossbachphotography ... Two Towers, Olympic NP, Washington I love the challenge of coastal photography! The constant flux of wave and tide makes for creating well crafted images very difficult. I waited for many sets of waves to wash up and recede before capturing the right combination of line and texture this evening on the coast of Olympic National Park. Join myself and Kurt Budliger this May for our Olympic National Park Workshop and explore some amazing coastal and rainforest images with us - https://greenmtnphotoworkshops.com/?page_id=590 #olympicnationalpark#washingtonstate#olympicpeninsula#coastallandscape#sunset#landscapephotography#photographyworkshop#olympicphotoworkshop#nikonnofilter
