Autumn in Ellis Cove

Yeah, this is the wrong time of year for this image… but it just crossed my screen and I thought I would share it. Ellis Cove is a small inlet off of Budd Inlet on the south end of Puget Sound near Olympia.

I keep a kayak at the marina directly across from the cove and spent a lot of time paddling around the inlet. The combination of autumn colors, high tide and a lack of wind was unusual, but just what this needed. I carry a Nikon AW120 in the pocket of my PFD. I wish it shot in RAW, but I’m happy that it’s waterproof.

Camera: Nikon Coolpix AW120
Lens set at 4.3mm
ISO 125    1/1000 sec    f2.8
