Winter Reflection

Winter Reflection

This shot was taken on Lake Quinault … in the rain forest, from a canoe.

It’s pretty rare that you get a clear day in the middle of winter in the Olympic rain forests. even rarer when you get one without wind. We paddled to the other side of the lake and had to head back because it was getting dark. But not before we saw a couple of snow geese.

Pyramid Mountain

Pyramid Mountain

This was taken on the Haines Highway, outside of Haines, Alaska. In the springtime, the sunsets last for hours. This provides the landscape photographer with time to drive around looking for the ‘best’ spot for getting a sunset photo. It stretches “The Golden Hour” into 3 or 4. If you can deal with the mosquitoes, it’s a wonderful place for photography.

Sunset at Kalaloch

Sunset at Kalaloch

Kalaloch is one of the beach sections of Olympic National Park. It’s a great place for catching sunsets (but a long ways from anywhere else). These shore pines are in front of the row of beach cottages that are available for rent. The (small, cozy with a great view) restaurant has good food, but expect the higher prices that come with a National Park resort in a remote location.

Sunset Photos

Ridgeline
Lone Duck in the Sunset

Putting this blog together was the first time that I had these two images positioned like this. They are two separate image files, not just one cropped in two. But they were both taken at the same time from the same location.

Having them together creates more than the sum of the two separated.

Old Ferry Dock

Old Ferry Dock I
Old Ferry Dock II

This is the old ferry dock in downtown Port Townsend, Washington. In the early days of the town, the so-called “Mosquito Fleet” provided regular transportation around Puget Sound. Later, a scheduled ferry service was started and the current ferry provides service to Whidbey Island from a dock just a few blocks from this location.

I liked the Great Blue Heron on the top of the pilings in the upper photo … and in the far distance, Mt Rainier. The lower image shows just a hint of the Olympic Mountains … and a seagull standing on one leg.
