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.

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.

Storm Clouds and Crepuscular Rays

Storm Clouds and Crepuscular Rays

This was a particularly striking example of crepuscular rays. I enjoy the challenge of trying to cover the high dynamic range that are typically present when crepuscular rays are present. In this case, the foreground was urban and cluttered, so I opted to take it to black.
