Waterfront Building

DSC_0912

I was attracted to the way that the light of the sunset was reflecting off the wood of the building which was reflected off the water. Then a seagull flew in and I got a shot off just before it landed in the water.

Mt Baker from Mt Walker

Mt Baker from Mt Walker

You can drive a Forest Service road from US 101 to the top of Mt Walker (~2730′) which is on the northeast corner of the Olympics, just south of Quilcene. There are two viewpoints … one on the north and one on the south. This is the view from the north viewpoint looking across Puget Sound to Mt Baker.

Anderson Lake

Anderson Lake

Anderson Lake is a State Park on the Quimper Peninsula south of Port Townsend. During the winter the park is closed, but you can park at the gate and hike the trails. We took advantage of a break in the moving in chores and went for a walk in our new neighborhood. Very pleasant and the weather cleared and gave us some dramatic views.

Port Townsend Mill and the Olympics

Port Townsend Paper Mill and the Olympic Mountains by Allan J JonesThis is looking southwest from the end of the downtown area of Port Townsend, looking towards the Port Townsend Paper Company mill and the Northeast corner of the Olympic Mountains. The steam from the mill and the cloud layer low on the mountains were both backlit and I was struck by the repeating horizontal lines. I also liked the way the distant foreground range has a set of cell phone towers and antennas … which repeat the vertical lines of the stacks and sailboat masts. (a little hard to see that in the smaller web version)
