A Sudden Burst of Activity

Funny how things tend to happen in spurts. I spent the past week in Forks and Mount Vernon to get some camera work in. Craig and I went to Second Beach on the Quilayute reservation to photograph the seastacks just off shore. After a day of recovery, we went to Roozengaarde to get some early shots of the tulips before the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Despite the weather forecast predicting rain for the week, we were fortunate to get some breaks in the rain that were long enough to get all of the shots we had planned for, and then some.

I’ll break out the photos into 3 blog posts, one for each day of shooting.

Beginning with day 1 in Forks, we hiked to Second Beach after scouting Rialto Beach and leaving unimpressed. We timed it to coincide with both low tide and, being the optimists we are, a potential sunset. The latter didn’t happen but at least the rain had slowed enough for shooting to be worthwhile. We stayed until after the sun had set and hiked back to the car in the dark. Because of the conditions, few of the 200+ photos I’d shot had turned out. Plus, I had left my tripod in the car and I didn’t want to change lenses in the rain, so I was shooting with a 24-70mm ƒ/2.8 equivalent and no image stabilization.

Anyways, on to the photos.
