In late November and December, through mid-February, the sun sets behind the Olympic Mountains as seen from Port Townsend. This view looks over the city marina, home of most of the boatbuilding activity in town (one of the larger employer groups … but no single employer comes close to the number of employees of Port Townsend Paper.
This is back to digital imaging and shows “rush hour” on Water Street in downtown Port Townsend. It is busy in the summertime and on weekends the rest of the year … but gets really quiet during the week.
I like it that way.
In the distance, you can see the sun setting behind the Northeast corner of the Olympic Mountains.
I was out walking in a neighborhood that is deeply multicultural. So, I have no idea why this dragon (?) was hung … part of some festival or celebration, I suppose. But when I looked up, it had taken a bite out of the moon and was going back for more.
These two images were taken a few minutes apart, but have different moods.
This was the summer air full of forest fire smoke a few years back … which is what provided the intense color of the sun. What I just noticed was a small spot on the sun that I wonder now if it was a sunspot. No way to tell now … it could also be a water spot on the sensor, for instance.
