    I have probably spent more time at Ruby Beach than any other place along Washington's coastline. Not too far to get there and yet an isolated venue for photography in the off seasons.

    This image is from a February visit in between storms. Very high tides and water flows in Cedar Creek made visiting the more northern parts of the beach impossible so I had to shoot from the base of the trail leading down to the beach area. I have previously posted a view looking towards the south from this same morning.


    C&C always welcome.

    Yep, if I lived up by you Alan, I think this would be my favorite beach too! That's some wonderful pastel pink you have going on in this.

    I agree, it's such a wonderful location. It was my first PNW Beach -- and still a favorite.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I should clarify that Ruby Beach is around 210 miles from Vancouver so not really close enough to drive up to shoot the sunrise unless you are a glutton for punishment. Kalaloch Lodge usually has 2 night for the price of one deals during the winter season and I used to take advantage of that frequently.

    Excellent! Lovely light and colors.
    You got a nice higher tide, too. Every time I went the tide was very low where you could walk out amongst the nearer stacks.
