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.

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.

Eldred Rock Lighthouse, Lynn Canal, AK 24Nov2013

Eldred Rock Lighthouse sits in the middle of Lynn Canal between Juneau and Haines. It’s a fantastic location… when it’s clear. Juneau weather is rainforest like… and you can get socked in for weeks. I was really lucky to be able to hit a day in November when it was clear and I was on the ferry from Juneau to Haines.

It was cold, though. In order to get the shot, I had to go out onto the deck of the ferry. The wind was blowing some, adding to the windchill from the motion of the boat. I would go out and shoot as long as my fingers could stand it, then go back inside and warm up as much as I could, hoping that my sensor stayed free of condensation. Between the wind and the ferry motion I had to bump up the ISO so I could keep the shutter speed fast enough to cut any camera motion.
