Quileute Needles—Iridescent Morning

This landscape was experienced during the heat dome last summer. It was still cool as we climbed this headland and the view of the sea stacks unfolded through the moss-covered trees. The marine layer had just lifted, lending an iridescent quality to the light, like rainbows everywhere. I remember being struck with how yellow the foliage was against the incredible ocean in myriad shades of blue.Brian Mahieu
