Easter weekend was quickly approaching and I had yet to plan anything. Taking a look at the weather revealed that once again we would have two days of pure sunshine. Last weekend I did some camping on San Juan Island. So this time I wanted to kick things up a knotch and do some backpacking along the coast at La Push in the Olympic National Park.
Winters in the Pacific Northwest tend to drag on at times. It’s not the cold or the rain. It’s the constant grey skies that start to wear on you. So when I saw a weekend forecast that called for blue skies and warm weather, I decided it was time to make an early trip to the San Juan Islands.
It was the last day of 2012 and I had decided instead of boozing it up, I was going to spend it camping at Fort Stevens State Park in Northern Oregon. To be honest, I only chose this location because of the Wreck of Peter Iredale. That, and its close proximity to my previous night of camping back in Cape Disappointment State Park in Southern Washington.
Back from a Christmas break in Florida, I decided I would do something different this New Years and go camping in a couple State Parks. First up on my list was Cape Disappointment State Park in Southern Washington.
It looks like 2011 is soon coming to a close. And what better way to say goodbye than with some beautiful sunset photography.
Another year has already passed. I made my way back down to the beach to once again capture the last shining moments of the 2010 sun. Here’s to another year!
Just a couple shots I had left over from one of my sunset trips. Here, a small pod of dolphin were cruising up the coast.
A few shore birds from one of my visits down to the beach during sunset. This Tri-colored Heron hunts for minnows on the shore break.
I took some time to head down to the beach and watch the final sunset of 2009. There wasn’t a green flash, but cloud structure more than made up for it.
Some more back catalog of photos from when I first tried out the 70-200 my friend loaned to me for the weekend. These were taken right before sunset, and a little under exposed.
I’ve started to collect a little back log of sunset photos where I only really got one or two decent photos from the trip. Instead of bloging about them individually, I figured I would post them up in sets. Here is the first set of misc shots.

I made way down to the Aqualane Shores beach access and walked down to the large set of pilings that usually have some sort of action.
There was nothing really happening in the sky or the shores, so I figured I would play with exposures and shutter speeds to see if I couldn’t get anything interesting.

There was a rain storm that had just passed through. And the sun was set to go down in 20 minutes. I grabbed my gear and raced down to the Naples Pier to see if I could get anything out of it…
Tonight’s sunset was going to be a bust, or so I thought. I was planning on heading to the beach to catch it, but looking at the severe weather alerts on my iphone was making me wonder how it was going to turn out.
As I walked onto the rain soaked beach, the people who had obviously been there all day looked at me rather stragely with all my camera gear. “What’s this douche going to take pictures of? It’s complete shit out.” Or so I was thinking they were thinking about me.
One of the more beautiful sunsets I’ve been able to capture with my new gear. I spent a little more time worrying about composition and location than trying to chase birds. Check the full post for more sunset shots!
This sunset had something special to offer. For some reason, there were a lot of pelicans feeding at the beach. I took my 200mm lens and was practicing with the high-speed drive mode on my Canon. Keep reading for some wonderful stop motion shots of pelicans.
Another beautiful sunset in Naples, Florida. Birds were out feeding once again. And I was able to capture a few decent shots. Read the full post for more!
I received my new wide angle lens and decided to catch sunset down on the beach.
