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.

Cold Water Dance

Cold Water Dance

This was taken in February at Kalaloch Beach … which means the water was cold… even if it was an early springlike day. Kids must have a different insolation value in their feet than I do.

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.

Photo taken at sunrise from Alki Beach, “Birthplace of Seattle”. Note the two ferries heading to Seattle… the one of the left is coming from Bremerton, the one on the right from Bainbridge Island.

Mill, Mountains and Marina

The Port Townsend Paper mill is the largest local employer. Unless, perhaps, you call the ocean the employer of the fishing fleet. Another strong candidate would be the Olympic National Park and the recreational opportunities it provides. This image almost looks like it is a toned black and white image … but it is pretty much a straight (non-enhanced) color image.

Heron

Great Blue Heron

While watching the sunset at the beach, I was joined by a Great Blue Heron. I believe the Heron was more interested in dinner than in the sunset. I got a nice sunset, not sure if the Heron got dinner.

  • ISO 400 1/160 sec f/6.3

Marina Sunset

Marina Sunset

When we had a clearing late in the day, I headed down to the beach in downtown Port Townsend to catch the sunset. I thought the strong backlighting of the fishing fleet was an interesting contrast to the homes on the hillside and a faint hint of the mountains in the distance.

Dock and Crane, Indian Island

Dock and Crane, Indian Island

This is looking across the bay at Port Townsend to the pier where they load/unload naval ships. There was quite a bit of rain shower activity and low clouds. It created an interesting visual. I changed this to black and white, but couldn’t tell much of a difference.

  • Lens: Nikkor 28-300mm set at 210mm
