The photo was taken at Shi Shi Beach, at the northern edge of the Olympic Coast. The sea stacks and wildlife at Shi Shi are unreal, and summer generally promises good weather. It can be done as a day trip, but if you've got a weekend, it's much better to camp overnight. The hike to the beach is about three miles and there is plenty of space to carve out your own niche, although it does get more crowded on summer weekends. You'll be awarded with fantastic shooting all day, from the morning mists to the clear, star-filled nights.
