2009: 14 Favorite Photos

Here are my favorite photos of the year. A couple were not published on the blog, as they were taken the same day as ones I did post.

Landslide on Larry Scott Trail

Slough on the Bluff
Slough on the Bluff

This slough (rhymes with tough), or small landslide, on the bluff above the Larry Scott Trail reminds us that the cliffs around Port Townsend are not made of rock but of highly compacted silt.  After the heavy rains early last week, this section of bluff slid down, creating a giant bird’s nest out of the displaced blackberry vines.

Inside the Public House

I couldn’t quite get all of the boat in one shot. It’s 48 feet long and had to be placed where it is by removing a window. The installation stopped traffic on Water Street for over an hour. The boat, formerly used by the University of Washington, does add a certain something to the Public House Grill, which is a bar and restaurant downtown.
