Crying Lady at Night

Second Beach, Olympic National Park, Washington Coast

I arrived at Second Beach in nearly total darkness (yes, the 0.7 mile walk through the forest was a little creepy).  It was so dark that I could barely see the outline of trees on top of Crying Lady rock; the long exposure has revealed more details than my eyes could see.  I was fortunate to have a line of clouds behind the rock, but otherwise clear skies to show the stars (which appear as very short streaks in this 30-second exposure).  Photo © copyright by Stephen Penland.
