With the sun going down I did get a chance to pack up my gear and head over to Grays Harbor Lighthouse which was being lit up at 9 pm. If you've never been out to the lighthouse during a lighting I highly recommend it and they even have the tower open so that you can climb to the top and get a closer look at the lens. If like me you plan on spending some time outside taking photos the one must have piece of gear to bring would be bug spray or you will get eaten alive by mosquitos. I speak from experience here as I forget to do it every single time and then stand around regretting it. On the plus side, I finally got a series of photos that I am happy with and the marine layer of light fog really helped to show the beam from the lighthouse.
