A view worth waiting for: Deep violets and pinks overtake the sky at Olympic National Park in Washington. Of this moment, photographer Grant Longenbaugh says, “The sea stacks were beautifully accentuated by the moist air, and while the actual sunset was quick and relatively colorless, about 30 minutes after, the sky lit up.” Soak in the scenery of the park’s more than 70 miles of wild coastline by hiking, backpacking, exploring tidepools and more.

Photographer Lincoln Harrison continues to amaze us with his extensive collection of surreal Startrails. Last year, we were just amazed by his circular swirls that filled the night and now, more recently, he produced a series in which each composition is filled with streaks of gorgeous light bursting across the atmosphere. Harrison documents the majestic night sky by using long exposures combined with a creative zoom technique, and then layering two images together in post-production.
