Trying to find when to visit Olympia National Park
« on: June 02, 2012, 02:19:39 PM »

I've attached a picture taken from the north end of Second Beach - Olympia National Park Washington USA - with the sun shining through Quateata Head Arch.

I'd love to photograph this beach, does anyone know when I should go to photograph the sun in this position. I could contact the N.P but I would better trust the advice of LL forum members. Maybe I could use TPE but I'd still better value local knowledge.

Many thanks. Andy

 Might take a bit of fiddling, but Photographer's Ephemeris should do the job for you.

It's a great location!

Thanks for the reply I'll try with TPE, I already use it but it's a bit too specific an area to be sure of a correct position/sun angle.

Any way you could contact the photographer, and ask?

Also, there is a large contingency of NW photographers on the Nature Photographers Network website. Here's their link -

They also have some regional sub groups. Here's a link to the Pacific Northwest Regional club -

Someone there should have the answer. It's an iconic image that is posted in their galleries on occasion.

Michael.

Thanks very much for that link. There's no way in the world that this particular photographer would tell me or anyone else a thing.

NPN looks like a good site but it appears you can't use their forum without being a paid member and I don't particularly like setting up a standing order with a website.

Why the hell would you want to take a photo that's already been taken? Save yourself the time, sell your camera, and buy a print. Jeesh

I've a little twist to the shot in mind, hell there's no way I want the same shot.
