Ferry Views

Mt Rainier from the Bainbridge Ferry
The Olympics and Port Townsend from the Coupeville Ferry

I like riding ferries… and that’s a good thing, since there are so many involved in getting to and from Port Townsend (where I live). I struggled with the decision about going Black and White with these … they were, of course, heavily into shades of blue. Decided to go B&W partly from having just browsed through a few Lee Friedlander books.

White Mountains, CA

The Sierra Nevada from The White Mountains

These are the last of my “lost iPhone photos”. The top one is looking from a viewpoint overlooking the Eastern Sierra Nevada and the valley around Big Pine, CA. The one below is one of the ancient Bristlecone Pines that grow even higher than this viewpoint image. Bristlecone’s (in this area) grow around the 10,000 ft line and above.

Nevada Clouds

Clouds over Fort Churchill State Park, NV

I enjoy watching clouds, and there is much to be said for clouds in the desert areas. And that is besides giving some (temporary) relief from the sun when one drifts over. Maybe it has to do with the wide open vistas or maybe their lack of rain threat. Regardless, I was going through my photos doing some organization (?) and found that I had taken some iPhone photos on a trip last year that I had never imported into Lightroom. More forgotten delights! These two are a couple of those.

Mt Baker and Eagle

Mt Baker and Eagle

Another image taken from Marrowstone Island. This one shows Mt Baker in the distance, but also an eagle sitting near the top of the Doug Fir. (Clicking on the image will increase the size and make it easier to spot the eagle) That tree is a regular perch for eagles, who watch for fish swimming by.

Mt Baker and Fog Bank

Mt Baker and Fog Bank

Taken from Marrowstone Island, southeast of Port Townsend. The fog bank is hiding Whidbey Island. The water is the Admiralty Inlet area of Puget Sound. Mt Baker is catching the light of the sunset.
