Coming home.....


I wonder how many outdoor events were cancelled this weekend because of the wet and stormy weather that never eventuated, WA covers a lot of ground so I'll give the bureau the benefit of the doubt and assume that there was some inclement weather somewhere in the state. Hmmm! Methinks I'm being too kind! I took these shots late yesterday afternoon from the lighthouse below at Hillary's Marina, it's a top spot to watch the boats, big and small come in from a day out at sea. The above shot was the last as the sun was sinking fast, I like this image because it looks like two separate pictures joined in the middle, it really isn't. I hope the fishermen coming home in that little boat had a  successful catch and were coming home happy chaps!! Well here we are at the beginning of a new week, let's hope it's a good one.....

Your surely did have a gorgeous day, regardless! Hope you have a great week with more good weather! It's still beautiful here and not too hot! That's why I love the northwest!!!

  7. What impressive beauty in these shots!
    Weather forecast seems to me such an errant science...

  14. Watching boats, big and small, is a pastime I enjoy very much. And I'd probably enjoy it even more at Hillary's Marina.

  17. You really do have two different worlds going here. Hope your camera's light sensor is okay - that king of shot is a bit risky for the hardware.

  21. Love the top shot. You have really caught a lot of depth in the photo. It's not a flat image as sunset shots often are. I think it's the clouds and the way the get smaller and smaller towards the horizon.

  27. Great shots! It's a no win situation, cancel or not, they'll always be someone to criticize them. We had a similar situation last week in Boston during the July 4th concert with 300,000 plus people. Thunder storms were expected, officials stopped the concert and moved people into highway tunnels for safety. The thunder storms passed by and of course there was criticism of officials, because there was no lightning.
