It was about a degree below freezing with just enough of a breeze to make it seem much cooler down at Sandcut Beach, but the sun was out and it was a beautiful day for photography. Look out from the beach and on most days you can see the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. I have heard there and many excellent photographic opportunities there and hope to check it out myself some time in the future.
Turn around and you will see Sandcut Falls, which seem to have accumulated some ice on this day.
In warmer weather the beach can get quite busy, as can the rope swing by the Falls.
Looking closer at the details, it was interesting to see the mist from the Falls caused ice to build up on one side of the rocks and debris on the beach.
Looking even closer it was apparent that the sun had heated the rocks just enough to make some of them start to shed their icy hats.
It was a fun day and I’m looking forward to my next photographic outing!

this is a stunningly beautiful beach. We visited it last summer and the post below by Wild Drake Photography does it justice.
thank you for this post which I reblogged on Living on Vancouver Island.. we visited it last summer but I didn’t take my camera so I appreciate your photos. The beach and waterfall are beautiful, but the trail down, however, was not much fun.
I’m glad you enjoyed the post, Vicki. It is a great little spot and while I don’t mind the trail down to the beach, the trip back up is not so much fun. 🙂
I loved it.. yes, trail back is quite hard with those high steps.. I was recovering from illness when we went so it was very difficult for me but the beach and waterfall were worth it.
Beautiful images. It looks very cold now that I came here.
Loved the picture of the US across the way, and I don’t remember seeing stone caps before (fascinating). Thanks for sharing a bit of your country with the world.
