Port Townsend Waterfront

Port Townsend Waterfront

I liked the rayed sun through the viewfinder and was pleased with the capture being close to what I saw (except for some flaring that I hadn’t noticed. The 18 rays are a result of the lens iris being a rounded 9-blade diaphragm, but I’m not sure why it doubles the count. Maybe Wikipedia will know (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diaphragm_(optics)) …

The dock in the foreground is the current Washington State Ferry terminal at Port Townsend (the other end of the route is Coupeville, Whidbey Island. In the distance is the north east corner of the Olympic Mountains.

    1. Hey, back home from my road trip and found that the aperture was set at f/29! that was on my Fujifilm GFX-50R… Not sure now why it was set that high. Not my usual settings. but it was shooting into the sun, so maybe it was the auto over-ride.
