Taken from Marrowstone Island, southeast of Port Townsend. The fog bank is hiding Whidbey Island. The water is the Admiralty Inlet area of Puget Sound. Mt Baker is catching the light of the sunset.
Capitol Lake is a man-made lake in Olympia, Washington, designed to reflect the state capitol building on the hillside to the left of this image. I used to frequently walk around the lake and watch nature and people. I was always amazed at the number of people that would be walking and totally oblivious to the incredible skies and cloudscapes.
These are more shots from when I lived in Olympia and had an apartment with a west facing deck.
These are more “found images” … out of my archive folder. All were taken from the deck of my apartment where I was living in Olympia. It was a great location for taking sunset photos.
The view from Marrowstone Island (southeast of Port Townsend, Washington) looking across Admiralty Inlet (Puget Sound) to Mt Baker. Note that the sharp peak on the right skyline is Mt Challenger.
