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.

North Fork Skokomish

North Fork Skokomish

An late winter hike up the North Fork Skokomish in Olympic National Park … with a chill in the air, but no rain or snow. Really nice to be out in the woods again. Makes me want to get further into the backcountry … soon!

  • Lens: Nikkor 24-85mm set at 24mm
  • ISO 400 1/200 sec f/7.1

Windy Day at Point Hudson

Windy Day at Point Hudson

Point Hudson is at the east end of downtown Port Townsend. The wind was really blowing this day, the waves don’t show it much except where the water is shallowest. Not sure what it is that attracts me to this image.

This was taken from a viewpoint at Fort Worden State Park … no, I don’t have a drone. Not sure I would have taken one up in weather like that, either.

Pond at Chinese Gardens

Pond at Chinese Gardens

This is the pond at Chinese Gardens in Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA. There aren’t any gardens, anymore. The sunlight breaking through and hitting the surface of the pond was pretty stunning. Especially after a couple days with heavy cloud cover.

And one of those times where I had been in the woods and using a high ISO, the sun broke out and I went for the shot without resetting the ISO down … plenty of exposure room to have got down to the base ISO.

  • Camera: Nikon D850
  • Lens: Nikkor 80-400mm set at 102mm
  • ISO 800 1/1250 sec f/14
