Pond at Chinese Gardens

Pond at Chinese Gardens

This is the pond at Chinese Gardens in Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA. There aren’t any gardens, anymore. The sunlight breaking through and hitting the surface of the pond was pretty stunning. Especially after a couple days with heavy cloud cover.

And one of those times where I had been in the woods and using a high ISO, the sun broke out and I went for the shot without resetting the ISO down … plenty of exposure room to have got down to the base ISO.

  • Lens: Nikkor 80-400mm set at 102mm
  • ISO 800 1/1250 sec f/14

Heron

Great Blue Heron

While watching the sunset at the beach, I was joined by a Great Blue Heron. I believe the Heron was more interested in dinner than in the sunset. I got a nice sunset, not sure if the Heron got dinner.

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.

  • Lens: Nikkor 28-300mm set at 210mm
  • ISO 800 1/400 sec f/10

A Gloomy Cell

A Gloomy Cell

This is the historic jail in the basement of the Port Townsend Historical Museum. The Port Townsend area was one of the wild sea towns of the late 19th century. The jail was frequently booked full of (non-paying) guests. One of the stories was of the author Jack London spending a night here on his trip to the gold fields of the Yukon and Alaska. Not sure if it was this cell.

  • Lens: 28-300mm set at 28mm
