Together on the Beach

Together on the Beach

I don’t often do “street photography” … but this image in downtown Port Townsend was compelling. The empty table and chairs with the couple at the picnic table, and the clouds were a nice touch.

I invite you to visit my website  to view my photos in a gallery format. I also have some photo essays of hiking in Olympic National Park and some examples of other art I have done over the years. Thank you.

Cairns

Stacked Rocks by Allan J Jones Photography
Stacked Rocks

I came across these on a small area of rocky beach in downtown Port Townsend. There were some additional cairns and I was amazed that they have remained for a significant period of time. I have done some rock piling … mostly while lazing around camp on a backpack on a river bed. But nothing that got as tall as these. (of course, river rocks tend to be more rounded, adding to the challenge)

Western Gull

While the gull is the ‘focus’ of attention I really was drawn to the colors of the rocks and the water around the rocks. I may have to return and take more photos of the rocks. Hopefully I can do that, without the gull photo-bombing me!

(by the way, the gull was walking, not standing still with it’s leg in the air)

Fort Worden Viewpoint

Fort Worden State Park Overview

This is the view of Fort Worden State Park looking south from the top of the hill. Port Townsend is just around the point. The little white spot to the left of the point is a sail boat. I debated removing it, as it looks almost like a huge sensor hot spot. But in a large (13×19 or so) print, it is identifiable.

Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Nikkor 24-85mm set on 42mm

Mountians and Ships

Cascade Mountains and the ferry Kennewick

Both images are taken from Fort Worden St Park in Port Townsend. The first image is of the WA State Ferry Kennewick on it’s way to Port Townsend from Coupeville. It’s a great boat ride…. especially when the weather is clear and you can see the Cascades in one direction and the Olympics in the other.

USS Robert Johnson and Mt Baker by Allan J Jones Photography
USS Robert Johnson and Mt Baker

This is the USS Robert Johnson with Mt Baker in the background. The discontinuity between the natural and the industrial/military attracted me to taking this image. I don’t usually take photos of military vessals … don’t want to be accused of being a spy!

Just a note: The ship was named after a young black marine who was serving in Viet Nam when a grenade landed in his unit’s foxhole. He through himself on the grenade, saving the lives of the others in his unit.

Point Wilson Lighthouse

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.

Madison Falls

DSC_1688

Madison Falls is along the Elwha River just at the boundary of the Olympic National Park. The walk is about a city block and is accessible (though not so much in the snow).

We had a few days of below freezing temperatures, but the ice hadn’t built up quite as much as I was expecting. Still nice, though.

Beach House and Madrone

DSC_1644

This was just at sunset and the colors were really warm… a lot warmer than the air temp. This place sure has a spectacular view … I took this while I was standing waiting for the sun to set so I could try to get a photo of the crescent moon (photo of that here).

The location is at the end of Marrowstone Island just southeast of Port Townsend, WA. The water is Puget Sound.
