First Light | Rialto Beach, Washington
After a full 36 hours awake through New Years night at Rialto Beach I was ready for sunrise light. Ansel Adams said, “You don’t take a great photograph, you make one.” I like to take it one step further, “You don’t make a great photograph, you create one.” Standing a top a gigantic fallen, 10’ off the ground and safe from the high tide, I waited for more than than an hour between captures for the sun’s rays to eclipse the wooded foot hills behind me and kiss this lonely tree. I was freezing and constantly looking back at my camp fire smoldering 50 yards away but a well laid plan is worth the wait.
