Yesterday I headed over to Port Angeles to their annual Crabfest, or how they marketed it to us Cannucks, Save A Turkey Fest this Canadian Thanksgiving. The day began with waiting in line to board the MV Coho ferry in a torrential downpour for half an hour and then having to sit outside on deck on the crowded, cold ferry for the one and a half hour journey over to Port Angeles.…
The beauty and majesty of this world I am surrounded by continually amazes me. This is Sombrio Beach, less than an hour north by car. Below is Witty’s Lagoon, within walking distance. Think I’ll go for another walk soon.

In the image below, I changed the layering to show more of the figure and clothing to make it appear like she is resting on…
The Light Reflected turned 3 today!
Thanks for all the love and inspiration!
Sunset is my favorite time to shoot. Shadows are long, sunbursts are magical, backlighting creates powerful contrasts and colors are rich and warm.
