During the dark of the moon in Oregon, one day you can go to the Cascade Mountains for the Milky Way over the 3 Sisters (next post). Then you can go the the Pacific Coast to see the secrets that are revealed when the ocean pulls back at extreme low tides. Here are some colorful tidepool creatures we enjoyed photographing.
Not all that is revealed is alive. Sometimes the receding water makes abstract designs in the sand.
All are fun to photograph.
