I took this Sunday evening, as we were crossing the sound on the ferry from Edmonds to Kingston, Washington (USA). It wasn’t the most colorful sunset I’ve photographed, but I loved the fact that there were no buildings, trees or mountains in my way. I finally found water to reflect the sunset colors! This scene was more worthy of the title “Big Sky” than what we have in northwestern Montana.

This view looks toward the southwest, with the Olympic Mountains barely visible behind the island. The wake in the foreground is from the ferry moving through the water.

104 views, as of October 18, 2010.

Photo taken September 5, 2010, with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera.

    Very cool sunset…love it!

  • Thank you, Gail! I love Montana sunsets, but you folks who live along Puget Sound and whatever it becomes when it hits Canada, are very fortunate to have all that wonderful water to photograph.

    I was told that I missed a great opportunity to photograph eagles too. We were only in Port Townsend for one (very rainy) day, and I guess the eagles had more sense than we did and stayed in out of the rain.
