If you’ve ever been out to Olympic National Park in Washington, you know it’s an incredible place to shoot. But, you’ve probably only visited a small portion of the vast park. Head on over to the Pacific coast region and the scenery is filled with rocky beaches and crashing waves, impressive sea stacks, and vibrant and dramatic skies. Time it right, and you can capture sunsets like you’ve never seen before, like this one shot by Steven Luu at Rialto Beach. You never know what you’re going to get here; the mood of the ocean and sky can change everything:
Luu scouted out this location earlier in the day and set up to get some sunset shots. He posted about this pic that the water was moving pretty quickly that day, so he began with a 1/5 of a second exposure but switched to 1/8 of a second to get more texture. And, apparently, the water was a bit more wild than what we see in the shot.
