Rialto Beach, Olympic Peninsula, Washington

I arrived at Rialto Beach in the Olympic National Park with a plan to photograph the famous sea stacks that define Rialto. I didn't even have time to stand and marvel at the sea stacks, or offshore islands, before the mist moved in and completely obscured them. Turning my lens toward the beach itself, I took this misty moody shot of fallen logs and two people walking along the shore. The lack of color only adds to the feeling of chill in the air. I didn't wait long to get back to the warm car.
