    Default Edmonds Transportation Mix

    Monday (12/23/13) afternoon from Sunset Ave. I caught the superstructure of a new Washington State ferry being barged south towards Seattle. A friend said it is the Samish which was built at a shipyard on Whidbey Island and is being transported to Seattle for completion.

    Later that afternoon I went to Marina Park to photograph the sunset. Shortly before sunset, a northbound freight rounded Pt. Edwards and rolled past the off leash dog park.

    That's interesting. I would never have guessed that the ferry would be assembled in multiple locations. Learn something new everyday.

    I like the light you caught on the train.

    Wednesday (1/15/14) afternoon a fog bank from Puget Sound kept rolling in and out of Edmonds. I was down at Marina Park photographing birds when I saw the ferry from Kingston coming out of the fog shortly before arriving at the Edmonds ferry dock.

    Post processing using Picasa's auto contrast gave it that artsy/surrealistic/ethereal look that Terry and I love.

    Interesting ferry superstructure shots, Bill. I had no idea they were building part of one on Whidbey. The foggy shots do qualify as ethereal!

    Two months later to the day, the Polar King passed Edmonds heading north on Monday (3/17/14).

    While Terry, Daren, and I were photographing grebes at the Edmonds Marina Wednesday (4/23/14) morning, the Washington State Dept. of Transportation's newest ferry, the Tokitae, sailed north past Edmonds on sea trials.

    Cool. Looks smaller than the Walla Walla or Spokane ferries.

    I was taking bird shots on Sunset Ave on 6/25/14 when the evening Vancouver, BC-Seattle Cascades rolled by near sunset.
