Fotoeins Friday: low tide on Samish Bay in the PNW

This post is the third of five March Fotoeins Fridays from the Samish Bay area in northwest Washington State (USA). Samish Bay is a small body of water in northern Puget Sound, itself a part of the larger Salish Sea.

We’ve come to this place by design, but if you don’t already know, you can easily miss the turnoff from Chuckanut Drive. The one-lane road gently descends the cliff to the rail tracks and the water’s edge. On the shoreline in Skagit County is the Taylor Shellfish Farms where the big thing is oysters. It’s low tide, and the waters have backed out for hundreds of metres. Visible at centre is a farm employee in hip waders on the mudflats and inspecting the farm beds. It almost feels as if you can walk clear out to the islands in the distance. Almost.

I made this photo on 18 April 2017 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/800-sec, f/22, ISO1000, and 47mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-aLr.
