Fotoeins Friday on Fidalgo Island: Anacortes, Fidalgo Bay

The following monthly series is based on a trip to the annual tulip festival in northwestern United States.

In northwestern Washington State, Fidalgo Island is located in the waters of the Salish Sea, about 14 miles (23 km) west from Mount Vernon and 38 miles (61 km) south from Bellingham.

The Fidalgo Bay Aquatic Reserve lies in Fidalgo Bay. Facing east across the Bay to March Point is the tank farm associated with the Marathon Petroleum Refinery. When this image was taken, the refinery was operated by Tesoro, which was taken over by Andeavor, which in turn was bought out by Marathon Petroleum.

The trestle at lower-centre is the Tommy Thompson Trail which pedestrians and bicyclists use to traverse Fidalgo Bay. At right-centre on March Point is North Texas Road, which separates Marathon Refinery to the left (north) and Shell Puget Sound Refinery to the right (south). Cows graze on the pasture flanking the southern end of Marathon Refinery.

I made the photo above on 19 April 2017 with a Canon EOS6D mark 1 with the following settings: 1/320-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 300mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as
