Seattle: the Sound and the Silence (WPC)

“Fog”, definition: “a thick cloud of tiny water droplets suspended in the atmosphere at or near the earth’s surface that obscures or restricts visibility (to a greater extent than mist; strictly, reducing visibility to below 1 kilometre).”

Fog isn’t atypical for autumn or winter in the city of Seattle or in the Puget Sound region. While less effective than snow, the damping by fog on light and sound can still provide a modest visual and auditory sensation of silence. That is, until headlights and foghorns pierce the temporary cloak and illusion.

Fotoeins Friday: The way out, the way in

The way out of 2015 was a way in to 2016.
The year out (of 2016) is a year in (to 2017).

I made the photo in foggy dawn minutes before scheduled sunrise on 1 January 2016. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-9g0.

Fotoeins Friday: “Green park, 2016.001”

•   Foggy start to New Year’s Day 2016 in Vancouver.
•   Photo on 8am PST, 1 January 2016, at 696 West Cordova Street.
•   With 2016 as leap year, 8am on the first day of the year is expressed as 2016.001 in 3 decimal places; see details below.
•   The question this picture asks is: what will emerge from my head fog under first light.

366 days in a leap year multiplied by 23.934 hours per day gives 8760.017 hours in the 2016 calendar year. For the 8th hour on the first day, this is expressed as 8/8760.017 = 0.0009. This means 8am on 1 January 2016 can be expressed as 2016.001 to three decimal places. I made the photo above; this post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-7HT.

Seattle emerges from winter fog over Puget Sound, on board MV Kaleetan, WSDOT Ferries, Seattle, WA, USA, fotoeins.com

Fotoeins Friday: Seattle emerges from Puget Sound fog

The late-morning starts out suitably winter grey, as the ferry leaves Seattle to traverse Puget Sound to Bremerton on the Kitsap Peninsula. On the return ferry to Seattle on board the MV Kaleetan, the fog and low stratus hang over the entire Sound, and I’m resigned to seeing a grim grey cloak for the entire trip. From the corner of my eye, I see something shimmer: it’s reflected sunlight from the Seattle skyline. The fog parts enough for a view of familiar landmarks from the television broadcast towers on Queen Anne Hill (left, north), the Space Needle (center-left), to the Columbia Center and the Smith Tower (right, south), as the early-afternoon sun casts a warm glow over the entire skyline. In the distance, WS Ferry MV Puyallup is about to dock at the Seattle ferry terminal.

I made this photo on 6 January 2015 with the Canon 6D, the 24-105 zoom, and the following settings: 1/400-sec, f/11, ISO500, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on fotoeins DOT com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-6nk.

Marine fog streaming into Burrard Inlet, Vancouver, Canada, fotoeins.com

Fotoeins Friday: fall fog in Vancouver’s 1st Narrows

Marine fog is another indicator of fall or autumn in Vancouver, as cool moist air from the north makes its way over the warmer waters of Georgia Strait. The leading edge of the fog seems to breathe and pulsate with the “lungs” of the Strait. Streaming through First Narrows, the fog partly obscures the two towers of the Lions Gate Bridge, spilling into Burrard Inlet. In the foreground are Coal Harbour and the changing colours of deciduous trees in Stanley Park.

I made this image from Vancouver’s Canada Place on 7 October 2014 with the Canon 6D camera and the EF 50/1.4 prime-lens with the following settings: 1/500s, f/11, ISO200, 50mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com.
