Alaska Sunset

Alaska Sunset

This was taken a while back when I was returning from seeing my aunt up in Haines, Alaska: from the ferry getting close to Juneau.

That’s a great ferry ride: too bad I have a negative reaction about long boat rides right now or we might plan another trip.

Cold Water Dance

Cold Water Dance

This was taken in February at Kalaloch Beach … which means the water was cold… even if it was an early springlike day. Kids must have a different insolation value in their feet than I do.

  • Camera: Nikon Df
  • Lens: Nikkor 28-300mm set at 190
  • ISO 250 1/640 sec f/10

Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound

Photo taken at sunrise from Alki Beach, “Birthplace of Seattle”. Note the two ferries heading to Seattle… the one of the left is coming from Bremerton, the one on the right from Bainbridge Island.

Mill, Mountains and Marina

The Port Townsend Paper mill is the largest local employer. Unless, perhaps, you call the ocean the employer of the fishing fleet. Another strong candidate would be the Olympic National Park and the recreational opportunities it provides. This image almost looks like it is a toned black and white image … but it is pretty much a straight (non-enhanced) color image.

  • Lens: Nikkor 28-300mm set at 300mm
  • ISO 200 1/800mm f/14

Marina Sunset

Marina Sunset

When we had a clearing late in the day, I headed down to the beach in downtown Port Townsend to catch the sunset. I thought the strong backlighting of the fishing fleet was an interesting contrast to the homes on the hillside and a faint hint of the mountains in the distance.

  • ISO 200 1/400th f/10

Dock and Crane, Indian Island

Dock and Crane, Indian Island

This is looking across the bay at Port Townsend to the pier where they load/unload naval ships. There was quite a bit of rain shower activity and low clouds. It created an interesting visual. I changed this to black and white, but couldn’t tell much of a difference.

North Coast Olympic Peninsula Panorama

North Coast Olympic Peninsula Panorama

This was the first panorama I did using my new Fujifilm GFX 50R. The .dng file came in at over 400MB … but at that resolution, you can see the Dungeness lighthouse (on the right shoreline) and ships in the harbor at Port Angeles (the left shoreline). In the distance you can see the San Juan Islands (on the right) and Vancouver Island (on the left) with the Victoria area just visible. This was taken from the Grand Ridge trail just west of Deer Park in the Olympic National Park.

Point Hudson

Point Hudson in Port Townsend WA

The view of Point Hudson from Fort Worden State Park (both in Port Townsend). The Point Hudson Marina is just to the right of the image and the downtown area of Port Townsend is just beyond that.

  • Lens: Nikkor 80-400mm set at 360mm
  • ISO 400 1/1000 f/13

Fort Worden Beach at Point Wilson

Beach at Fort Worden

As regular readers of my blog may have realized, I am a big fan of Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend. It has a large group of citizen volunteers (Friends of Fort Worden) that put in thousands of hours per year to keep the park centered on offering opportunities for continual learning.

This photo was taken from the dock running out to the Marine Science Center. It is also a composite of three images to make the panorama.

  • Camera: Nikon D850
  • Lens: Nikkor 58mm
  • ISO 100 1/800 sec f/7.1
