The Kennewick in Stormy Weather

The Ferry Kennewick coming in to Port Townsend

I enjoy walking in stormy weather and this October day was perfect for that. The rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains protects Port Townsend (some) but it is often very windy. Walking along the beach downtown, I noticed the ferry Kennewick coming into town. I was a little surprised, since in high winds they often cancel that ferry run.

Hydrangea

Hydrangea

I have mentioned several times that this is the first year watching the garden bloom in our new house. I was totally surprised when this hydrangea bloomed with these red flowers. All of mine in the past were blue or whitish.

Abandoned Window

Abandoned Window

This window is from one of the battlements at Fort Worden State Park and one that is readily accessible to visitors. As such, it has been ‘tagged’ numerous times over the years. The park approach is to paint over the tags. Between the pealing paint, normal discolor with aging and the tag removal touch up paint, the color patterns can be very visually interesting.

Oregon Grape

These oregon grapes were near the beach in Fort Worden State Park. I had found some earlier that were down by the beach, but they were a little dried out. These were in a shadier area and looked more healthy.

The local farmers markets can be a great opportunity for photography. There are so many colors and interesting shapes. (and buy something and support the local farmers while you’re there!)

View to the north from the top of Mt Walker

View from the top of Mt Walker

This view is looking north to the Quimper Peninsula … Port Townsend is on the far end just along the water.

After shooting in the forest under cloudy skies, I turned the ISO down and took this photo. I didn’t pay as much attention as I should have … I was pretty tired from the climb back to the top (I drove to the top and hiked down and back up). I should have paid more attention … I could have dropped the ISO to 64 and still would have been able to handhold.
