November 18th - It's a coming...



...She's gonna blow...
...With the next shift of the tide...
Yep. It blew today. Gusts to sixty-five according to weather station at Smith Island. This was shot in the "protected" waters of San Juan Channel. That's Turn Rock Light in the foreground, and the South end of San Juan Island in the background. We ended up taking the storm route to Anacortes - over the North sides of Blakely and Cypress Islands. When I got to my hotel I checked the news and saw that they cancelled 2 ferry runs tonight because of high winds and heavy seas. My favorite part is when the whole ferry shakes and shudders when getting pummeled by the waves. Kinda puts things in perspective...

  1. I love the mood in this photo - and the many blues.
