Notes

This was a blue hour shot, which made the color too monochrome, but black and white processing enabled viewer focus to go to cloud textures and leading lines emphasizing the sea stack. To increase dynamic range and detail, three exposures were combined in PhotomatixPro HDR software before black and white conversion in DxO SilverEfex2.

Description

Ruby Beach is one of the better landscape photography locations on the Washington Coast, with sea stacks, driftwood, a lagoon. The Beach slope is gradual, enabling reflection shots in wave-washed wet sand.
