HOH RAIN FOREST 2 © 1998Olympic National Park, WA
Niki and I headed to the Washington coast and Olympic National Park on a mission to photograph coastal images. Our goal was to photograph big waves in the Pacific Ocean, but instead, we decided to check out the Hoh Rainforest. The high humidity mixed with the cool temperatures made it quite comfortable, and we stayed for the next several days. We were so fascinated by the rain forest that we only spent one day photographing the Pacific Ocean. The smells and lush green reminded me of Florida swamps.
