Milky Way

Starry, starry night

As a break from fall color photos, here’s a shot of the milky way. Since low tide shifts to night time in the fall and winter, this was taken around 11:00 pm from the beach. I walked about a mile west from North Beach to get as far away from lights as one can around Port Townsend.

Happy Halloween.

Late Night at North Beach

Low Tide at 10:30 pm at North Beach

Sometimes we get the strangest ideas. I wanted to walk North Beach at low tide. The problem with that is that it happened after 11:00 pm. Of course the tide drops well before it hits the lowest point and I was able to get out on the beach by 9:00. I ended up taking photos until close to 11:00 anyway. This view looks west towards Sequim and Port Angeles, which I believe are the glows in the distance.
