Best time to shoot is at sunset from this location on north side of Washington Park. Washington Park is located about 5 miles from the town of Anacortes, washington. I had seen this tree while doing a recon of the area earlier in the day and went back 6 hours later to try and capture the proper light for my composition.
Shot after sunset while light was still changing with the unique cloud formations. Used Nikon D800, 24mm, f8, Gitzo Tripod, Cable release. Tide was coming in fast so had limited time to shoot while jumping from rock to rock and composing.
