I enjoy photographing in Olympic National Park a lot. There is so much to shoot there. This image was made at the 2nd Beach location. It’s a short walk through the woods that dumps you onto this wonderful beach. Hang around for sunset and you’ll be treated to something special. This is an image made with a Phase One IQ160 with an ALPA camera. I did one exposure then processed it out at 2 stops over and under plus normal. It was the taken into PhotoMatix and tone mapped. What this does is recover the detail in highlights and shadows and then blends them together. A bit surreal and real at the same time.
