This post is the fifth and final March Fotoeins Friday 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.
This southwest view is dominated by Lummi Island (centre-right) with Eliza Island in the foreground, and Cypress Island at centre-background. The view includes a line-of-sight to Anacortes, but the city is hidden by Guemes Island. Coming to this viewpoint, I thought about what the indigenous population must have thought of these waters and what they brought to their home, and about what sailors in the Spanish Navy must have thought when they saw these waters for the first time in the late 18th-century. After all, these islands are called the San Juan Islands.
I made this photo on 21 April 2017 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/18, ISO500, and 32mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-aLi.
