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.

Mead Road Shed

Mead Road Shed

This was an image I took with the old Kodak Brownie Target Six-20 that our family had when I was a kid. Love the soft focus and ‘natural’ vignetting. Mead Road is on Marrowstone Island, Southeast of Port Townsend, WA.

Glad to find that the film was still available. This was Kodak T-Max 100.

Point Hudson

Point Hudson

This is from the viewpoint overlooking Fort Worden State Park … looking down towards Point Hudson and (around the corner) Port Townsend. I love the way the top of the big Doug Fir in the foreground is bent to mirror the shoreline running over to the point.

  • Lens: Nikkor 80-400mm set at 80mm
  • ISO 400 1/1000 sec f/16

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.

Hunting Eagle

Hunting Eagle

I was out for a walk at the beach recently, enjoying the springlike weather. There were a couple of eagles hovering around the top of the bluff, near where they have nested. This one thought there was something for lunch on the shore. Turned out to be a false alarm.

As it left, a gull started following, just in case there was something dropped.

Gull looking for handouts.
