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.

This is the lighthouse at Point Wilson at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend. This is an example of where the conversion to Black and White adds a lot of dramatic effect to the image. See the color image below. It’s an okay image, but the black and white conversion adds a lot of punch to the sky.

Point Wilson and Mt Baker II

Point Wilson and Mt Baker

This was a day after the color image of a couple posts ago (here). The weather has  been just spectacular. And the air was clear enough for a great view of Mt Baker across Puget Sound. I really like the black and white version of this … especially since the pickup truck in the front lot was bright red and really was an eye magnet. Black and White made it disappear into the background.

Point Wilson is at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA.

Point Wilson is on Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, Washington. I was walking the beach and liked the snowy North Central Cascades behind the lighthouse. After our snowy weather, it was a nice change to be able to walk the beach in the sun.
