Mount Baker looms almost like a mirage behind the New Dungeness Light Station in this shot I took late last month. Baker is part of the Cascade Mountain chain that creates a mountainous north-south spine in Washington State. It is east of Puget Sound and the range frequently isn’t visible from Sequim.
This is a different perspective of a pier shot that I posted recently here. I like both of them so you get to look at both, too.
I love the light this time of year. On a clear day it’s low and warm just before sunset. A perfect time to walk.
I went looking for a great blue heron. I’m glad to report that I found one. This was taken on my first outing with my big new bazooka lens.
There are remnants of an old pier in Dungeness Bay near the former location of the Three Crabs Restaurant. The road has been rerouted around a wetland but there’s a small parking lot and short trail that leads to the beach. The area is planted with native vegetation and is being restored.
Tide was coming in at Dungeness Bay. A small island was getting tinier. Birds that wanted to hang out had to cozy up.
This boat was working its way around Dungeness Bay last Monday. There are a couple of things they might have been looking for. Green crabs have been found here, an unwelcome, invasive species. And last month a fish farm in the San Juan Islands accidentally released tens of thousands of Atlantic salmon into Puget Sound waters. They don’t belong here either.
