Visions of Tongue Point, WA – He saw. She saw.

The sea stack at Sand Beach around the corner from Tongue Point

Tongue Point is an out cropping of rock in the Salt Creek Recreational Area near Port Angeles,WA.  At low tide it is accessible on foot and you can see many species of marine life, such as, mussels, clams, sea stars, crabs, and kelp.  There is also a prominent sea stack.  Here is what we saw.


As we climbed down the stairs on the point it was clear there was going to be many macro and close-up photos in the tide pools.  Mary loves these types of shots, I do not.  I was looking for the “grand landscape.”  Sixty minutes later, we both walked away with what we wanted.

See Mary’s Blog about how she made these photos.

As Mary worked the tide pools, I walked over to Sand Beach.  It was late afternoon and the light was not bad, but not all that great.  I used my infrared to make these monochrome  photos.

I have seen very good sunset photos from here, but we had overcast skies each night.  So we planned this late afternoon shoot and settled for these.
