The Edmonds smoke screen sunset tour continued Saturday night (8/5/17) with a stop at Haines Wharf Park. The park has a nice streetside viewing platform complete with telescope, benches, and a map of the Olympics for use on smoke-free days. http://www.edmondswa.gov/visit-a-park-text-15/parks-map/haines-wharf-park.html

The layout of the park was such that I dragged out all three cameras: 7D + 500L + 1.4x TC (tripod mounted), 5DIII + 24-105L wide angle zoom (tripod mounted), and 7DII + 70-200L telephoto zoom (handheld).

I thought the dilapidated wharf would make a good backdrop. A passing train was an added bonus.

7D + 500L + 1.4x TC, -1 exposure compensation, full frame. The smoke acted as a natural filter. I don't know if the black dot on the sun is some kind of sunspot or just a spot on the camera's sensor.

The first sunset of September signaled the beginning of the Labor Day weekend. For many it is the end of summer vacation and they were out to enjoy a very comfortable evening along the Edmonds waterfront.

Fishermen (and women) were casting their lines off the fishing pier.

Saturday afternoon (9/16/17) smoke from a forest fire rolled over Puget Sound. With rain predicted this week, it may be the last smokescreen sunset of the year.

Sunset Monday (12/4/17) was 4:17 pm PST. The earliest and most southerly sunsets of the year will be with us from now through the first day of winter (12/21). This presents a brief window of opportunity to photograph the sunset from the marsh.

Thursday (12/7/17) my son and I went to Marina Beach to photograph the sunset. The sun will set at its earliest (4:16pm, PST) and most southerly position from now through the first day of winter.
Taken with the 5DIII + 24-105L medium zoom, tripod mounted.

The countdown of 4:16pm southern most sunsets, which started on 12-6 and continues through the first of winter, led my son and me to the fishing pier Wednesday (12-13-17) evening.

My son and I went to the fishing pier Wednesday (12/20/17) to photograph the last sunset of autumn.

The wind and high tide created some waves.

So far the first day of winter is not shaping up to have a pretty sunset, but there is still an hour to go.

Wednesday (1-3-18) at Marina Park. It is the new year; the sun is creeping north and setting a little later.
