Ghost Ship

The other night I was feeling restless, so as the night wore on I grabbed my camera gear and headed out the door, without a destination in mind. I ended up on the waterfront, hoping for a view of Mount Rainier behind the hills of the city.

Funny thing. While setting up, with my large 200-500 lens, several people stopped to talk to me. They asked, “did you see them?”, or “are they still out there?” Apparently I’d missed a pod of Orca moving through the water towards The Narrows Bridge. How I would’ve liked to have seen that!


The cloud cover obscured Mount Rainier, so I changed to a wide angle and looked the other direction. I really liked the curve of the shoreline, but at first wasn’t excited about the ship, as the long exposure would blur it. However, I thought of the approach of Halloween so edited a little dark, maybe a little spooky, and I’m happy with how it turned out.



Did you know I often do print giveaways? What’s changed though, is that I’m going to do one every single month. And what’s even more exciting, is that simply by being on my email list, you’re in the running. That’s right — stay subscribed, and every month have a shot at a beautiful art print on fine paper, canvas, or metal.



I’m out of space in my office! I need to downsize, so I’ve decided to offer a special Mystery Print Pack at almost 50% off retail. With each mystery bundle, you’ll get one 18x24 print, and one 12x18 print. Choose your theme of Mountain, Ocean, or Tacoma. There are limited quantities, so act fast.
