It seems it was only yesterday that I stood here, alone on the beach, after the storms passed. Like so many Washington mornings in March, the roads were wet as I drove through the rainy darkness, slowly sipping my coffee in eager anticipation of being near the water.

The inclement weather impeded my ability to shoot, so I missed my chance to capture a gorgeous sunrise. By the time the rain passed, the orange glow behind the distant islands had already disappeared, but in its place were dark clouds and a soft subtle light that filled the sky.

Today, as I look forward to my next trip to Washington, I can’t help but wonder… Will I be just as excited this time? Like the broken posts remaining from the pier that once stood there, I know there are parts of my life that are gone, and so many things have changed. Was this just a fleeting moment in time that only exists now through the memories I have in this image, or will I find that same feeling and fall in love with Washington all over again?

Thanks for looking.
