Rialto Beach, Olympic National Park
I first saw these two giant sea stacks from Marc Adamus’s absolutely powerful and dramatic photo “Fire Light“. But when I reached Rialto Beach, I barely recognized these two until walking along the coast for over 1 mile towards north.
What disappointed me were the footprints all over the place surrounding the two towers, and sadly there was almost no cloud on the sky. The tide level was still pretty low when the sun started to set. I took a couple of photos with sun stars, but really hated the endless footprints on the foreground, and decided to wait. About an hour after sunset, the tide finally raised, and ocean waves removed all footprints. The two towers started to reveal its real beauty to us.
I was so dedicated to capturing the perfect moment of ocean waves before I realized the tide almost blocked the way back to the tail head. To get back, we ended up experiencing an “exciting” trip between waves.
