Kitsap Peninsula, Oct. 2004

Click on the small pictures to see larger ones.

On the ferry from Edmonds to Kingston, looking across at the return ferry back to the mainland, with Seattle and a faint Mt. Rainier in the background.
Approaching the ferry port at Kingston, with the snow-capped Olympics behind.
In Poulsbo, settled largely by Norwegian immigrants.
Where else could you get Lutefisk TV dinners?
Port Gamble was a saw mill community, settled by a large clan from Maine, and deliberately reminiscent of a New England village. Here, water towers.
Clapboard houses along the main street.
The general store, exterior.
Inside the general store. Arrayed around the mezzanine is a rather extensive seashell collection.
While the mill is gone, logs are still collected here for shipping.
A view from the Buena Vista cemetery, pretty indeed.
Another very New England-like view from the cemetery.
A fine old house.
Outbound from the ferry terminal at Kingston.
Three views of "The Mountain": Rainier, with the Seattle skyline in front.
(These pictures are "straight", with no manipulation of the composition; the city and mountain just happen to be in alignment as one leaves Kingston, with the mountain about 75 miles away, and the city 15 miles away. Taken hand-held with the EF 70-200/2.8L lens on a rather windy and shaky deck.)

These pictures were taken with a Canon EOS 10D digital camera. Images were cropped, balanced, etc. with Adobe Photoshop Elements.
