Yesterday we got our 4am wakeup call, and then we headed for Crescent Lake in Olympic. We had intended to shoot at the beach, but the sky was completely clear. We hoped for some low-hanging mist further inland, and we found it over the lake. What luck. We got some beautiful shots of the lake, and then headed for Hurricane Ridge. We took a couple of stock shots from the Ridge - the sun was too high for fine art landscapes. It was neat to be standing on 15 feet of snow. And to know that it was a lot deeper than that a few months ago.

Afterwards, we drove East, then South, and then West around Oympic en route to Canon Beach in Oregon. We shot the sunset there last night. I'm happy with what I got, although the clouds could have been more impressive. I've been here before, but the last time, I didn't shoot - it was great to shoot such a gorgeous beach.

We thought we might get some nice shots this morning, but the sky was heavily overcast, so we headed for the airport instead. And here we are - Portland Airport. We'll be flying home in a couple of hours. And maybe I'll get some shots processed tomorrow.

Can you spell "whirlwind"? You sure covered some ground on this trip and I'm looking forward to your images. My only regret is that I didn't get to meet you in person while you were in my "backyard". Thanks for the "field reports" you posted along the way.

Whirlwind indeed. :) I wish I could spend more time in each location. For now, we take what we can get and try to make the most of it. When the weather isn't right for shooting, we explore as many locations as we can so we know where to shoot the next time.

Maybe next time we're in the area, we can meet up for lunch somewhere.
