Ruby Beach Rocks & Dynamic Waters

Ruby Beach Rocks & Dynamic Waters – 16″x20″ Photograph $200


Ruby Beach is one of my favorite places on the planet. Although I have taken several thousand photos there, I am always compelled to take more. I have been known to randomly decide to leave my condo in Olympia and make the 2 1/2 hour drive just to see sunset — and then drive back home in the dark. One year, I even drove up in the winter and found snow on the beach.

This photo was taken with the SlowShutterCam app, and the long exposure creates some sense of motion and dynamic energy. The rocky shoreline contrasts with the sea stacks, and the rock in the foreground almost mimics the larger sea stack. Black and white is used to emphasize shape and texture, since the colors were more distracting than important.
