Alaska Sunset

Alaska Sunset

This was taken a while back when I was returning from seeing my aunt up in Haines, Alaska: from the ferry getting close to Juneau.

That’s a great ferry ride: too bad I have a negative reaction about long boat rides right now or we might plan another trip.

Steens Mountain

Steens Mountain

In south central Oregon, Steens Mountain is a distinctive feature, rising to over 9000 feet. This photo is taken on the west side, looking east, near the small town of Plush. In this dry country, Steens Mountain wrings what little moisture is in the air and on the east side of the range is the Alvord Desert.

  • Camera: Nikon D200
  • Lens: Nikkor 18-70mm set at 18mm
  • ISO 100 1/400 sec f/10

Marrowstone Beach View

Marrowstone Beach View

This is a series of images stitched into a panorama. Marrowstone Island is on Puget Sound north of Seattle. If you click on the image, it will be loaded larger and you will be able to see Mt Baker in the north (left side) and Mt Rainier just barely visible off the point on the right.

Here is one of the single images:

Super Moon and the Ferry Kennewick

Supermoon and the Kennewick

This was the moonrise on April 7, 2020 with the ferry Kennewick coming into Port Townsend. I was at the beach at Point Hudson.

  • Camera: Nikon D850
  • Lens: Nikkor 80-400mm set at 400mm
  • ISO 100 1/25 sec f/11

This is what the moon looked like when it was coming up a few minutes earlier coming up next to Mt Pilchuck in the Cascades east of Everett.

Elwha Valley Rain Clouds

Elwha Valley Rain Clouds

Being a ridge or two away from the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park, the Elwha Valley still gets its fair share of rain. Not anywhere near what the westside valleys get, but still enough that there’s plenty of water. Going for a day hike, it’s always prudent to carry some raingear, regardless of the forecast.

This photo is taken at the point the road is closed due to the washout. The building in the distance is where stock is kept during the summer months. In the old days, this was the location of the Elwha store and gas station.

  • Camera: Hasselblad 500 C/M with 80mm lens

The Lighthouse at Point Wilson

The Lighthouse at Point Wilson

The lighthouse at Point Wilson at Fort Worden State Park has been an important landmark for well over a century, marking the entrance to Puget Sound from the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Those are the North Central Cascades in the background.

Here’s a close up of the light, showing the weathering from exposure to the salt air and near constant wind.
