Nightfall on Ruby Beach

Nightfall on Ruby Beach

August 27, 2007 | Olympic National Park

It got dark quickly and yet the light at the horizon didn't fade. Thinking that the night was drawing to a close I walked back to the path up off the beach. I ran into a couple of photographers and thought it'd be nice to introduce myself. They were terribly nice people - two from England and one from Georgia. We talked photography and cameras for a bit and as the sun was setting the kept taking pictures of this scene. I didn't think it was spectacular, but I thought I'd give it a shot.

I don't think my image turned out too poorly, considering that I probably wouldn't have taken it had the other photographers not been there chatting. I really thought it was too dark to get any worthwhile images, but I guess it's never too dark or too late.
