Lincoln Park Beach Views

Lincoln Park Beach View (1)

Lincoln Park in Seattle is a great place for walking. Decades ago, I lived across the street from it and it sill is a favorite. In the view above, the ferry is the Fauntleroy/Vashon/Southworth dock at Fauntleroy.

These two shots were taken from the same location. The one below is looking north towards Alki Point.

Wind on the Water

Wind on the Water

When I arrived at the location I used for my photo of the moonrise (see previous post), it was very windy. The bluff I was on provided some shelter from the wind down on the beach and shoreside waters, but you could see the wind moving across the water and reacting to down-gusts, etc. My Nikon was on my tripod with a 500mm lens on it, ready to shoot the moon. I didn’t want to take that apart, so I used my iPhone to take a shot of the water, using a fence railing as support. I was pretty happy with the result. It was a 1/4 second exposure, so you can see movement in the foreground trees, the driftwood is sharp, and the water is slightly blurred.

Sand and Seaweed

Sand and Seaweed

Walking along the beach at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA, I noticed these two pieces of seaweed sticking out of the sand. The curved shapes and shadows attracted my eye.

Point Wilson Lighthouse in Winter

Point Wilson Lighthouse in Winter

It was a pleasant winter day down at Fort Worden State Park and the Point Wilson Lighthouse. The view when the clouds are high or non-existent includes a dramatic view across to Mt Baker in the North Cascades. In this case, it was above the smog layer … or most of it.

Saying Goodbye to 2021

Beach at Kalaloch

The sun is setting on 2021 … and can’t say I’m all that unhappy about saying goodbye. Political craziness, pandemic restrictions, loss of loved ones, and the list goes on. Not that there weren’t good times… but here’s hoping that 2022 raises the bar a little bit on the ratio of good/bad.

For all those who follow my blog (and especially those who ‘like’ or make comments), I am grateful for your encouragement and support. Thank you!
