I decided to head to the Washington Coast the day after the 4th of July and hopefully hit a low tide at sunset. The tide was supposed to be at 3 feet which was low for this time of year at sunset. I drove over and got to the trailhead an hour before the sunset. My usual plan is to head south on the beach and slowly work back as sunset gets closer. The weather was mid 50's F, and several families were set up to camp on the beach.
I worked the beach from south to north and seemed to time things well. Waves were not too bad, and some photogenic gulls flew about. At one point, I found this pool and set up to capture it just as the sun set past the "Weeping Lady" sea stack. I took several shots handheld and finally pulled out the tripod for one last shot.
