Saturday may have been one of the last clear dawns of the year. Certainly, it’s been wet and windy since. As you may have noticed, when the mornings are calm, I often head to Port Townsend’s Boat Haven for reflection photos.
We have been blessed with some lovely days this week. The forecast had been for clouds and showers but Wednesday and Thursday both dawned clear and cold. In this photo, we see a couple of chilly boaters coming in from a night on their boat moored at Port Townsend’s Boat Haven.
I went down to the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival just before the sun rose to photograph in some more of that wonderful pre-dawn light. This man was just headed back to his boat, which was moored in the bay. I snapped a few quick photos. This was my favorite.
About 12 miles south of Port Townsend on the road to the Hood Canal Bridge and the Seattle ferries is Beaver Valley, which hosts a number of small farms. For the photographer it also has the advantage of being the foggiest spot on the peninsula and very scenic.
