Ruby Beach is one of those beaches I seem to return to with every trip to the Olympic Peninsula. Some visits I'll wade across the stream and head north, other visits I'll walk the sands to the south. Or maybe I'll just sit on the strewn piles of driftwood that have been ever present here as long as I have been visiting this beach. This visit came on our last full day of my most recent Olympic trip and was almost an afterthought (forgive me Ruby). The main goal of the trip had been the Hoh, with side outings to explore some new spots. But if you have ever been to Ruby Beach, then you understand how hard a beach it is to resist. It was a lovely visit, with mostly cloudy skies, but on the return trek up to the parking lot some nice light peeked out for a couple of minutes and this bend in the trail was as good a spot to enjoy it as any.

My list of favorite things about the ocean is as long as the many days of my life I have spent there. So here is another entry.

Those moments when low, overhanging clouds reflect onto the choppy surface of the nearby ocean. But rather than looking like a reflection, they end up looking more like an anti-shadow. I love seeing the shadows of clouds play across ocean waters as well, but these light, diffuse reflections mirroring the size and rough shape of the clouds passing by fascinate me a bit more, probably because I do not see them quite as often.

Another image from that same roll of Fuji Reala.

I really don't understand how such a beautiful spot came to be named "Devil's Punchbowl". There does not seem to be anything particularly evil, malicious or even all that dangerous about this location. If anything it is a picturesque gem of a swimming hole. I had never done the "hike" (more of a walk) out to this spot before but as with any return trip I try to mix in at least one new destination. And while the temperature of the water dissuaded following up any notions of jumping in, the color of said water was enough to persuade us to sit here and linger awhile.

You'll have to forgive me some brevity tonight. It's been a busy work week and my reservoir of "steam" so to speak is lower than I thought it was when I first thought to sit down for a post. Which is ok, because I don't have much to say about this image anyway.

The most interesting tidbit to share is that this was shot using an expired roll of Fuji Reala. I think the expiration date was 2008-09. But it may have been as old as 2003. Needless to say that in my line of work at the camera store I get asked a lot about film expiration dates. And suffice it to say my advice is generally don't worry about it. In the scope that most photographers ask (as in "oh no this roll of film expired 3 months ago, is it still ok to shoot?") expiration dates matter fairly little. It is not til a roll of film reaches many years, if not decades, that you need to really take considerations. If anything, storage and environment make much more of an impact on the life and health of a roll of film. Your roll's expiration date may be two years in the future, but bake it in a car on a summer afternoon for several hours and it can easily look worse than a roll of film that expired a decade previously but was kept in a cool, dry place.

Of course, you never know for certain when using expired film of unknown origins, so it wasn't like I knew this roll of Reala would turn out as well as it did. I used to really enjoy shooting this film, but that was before Kodak Ektar came along.
