Port Townsend has an excellent walking/biking trail: The Larry Scott Trail. It runs from the marina downtown for 7.3 miles … they hope to connect it to the Olympic Discovery Trail, but are missing several miles of property rights. This section is near the marina and at low tide there are frequently herons that come to try and find a snack or two.
I like the panoramic format even if the subject isn’t a scenic panorama. Of course, it depends on the subject. In the top image here there are a lot of horizontally running lines … something that a panoramic crop can emphasize. In the lower image, the crop turned into a panorama when I cut away the pieces that were distracting. In this image, I liked the wet rocks just above the surf line … and the rocks in the distance become increasingly out of focus.
I was at Fort Worden State Park recently. There had been some snow the day before, but it was mostly gone (you can still see some left in the driftwood in the top image). I liked the water in the bottom photo and the splashes frozen in time.
This is a shot I took while taking the Alaska Marine Highway ferry up to Haines, Alaska. I know it is along the coast of Vancouver Island, but that’s it. I really wish I had taken note of the location at the time. Sigh.
It was a nice spot, though.
I thought this image captured some of the wonder and joy of a first walk at the beach. Some of my earliest memories are being at the beach with my family. We lived close to the beach until I was 6 … and went razor clam digging on a regular basis.
