I love Seattle. It’s arguably the food capital of the USA and has one of the greatest markets outside Europe in Pike place, home of the great theatre of fish throwing. Aside from that it has great produce and is a joy to wander and taste the morsels on offer. Seattle is also famous for coffee, of course, Boeing and Microsoft. A little know fact is that is the best place on the planet to have a heart attack due to the number of Defibrillators it has strategically placed in and around the city. The fact it has a couple of international manufacturers who make them in Seattle would certainly have something to do with it, wouldn’t you think?

Last year I travelled the inside passage on the Alaska marine highway. Not on a cruise ship but on the ferry from Bellingham, near Seattle, to Alaska. More on that in the future. Came back with a lot of images which I am slowly working my way through. The weather was at best, pretty awful to begin with but it made for some interesting skies and scenery. This one is an example. Its not as it appears at first glance, black and white. 1/125 @ f11 100mm ISO100
North west of Seattle in Washington state USA, is the Olympic Peninsula. It’s main attraction is the very wet rainforests, coastal scenery and the odd body of water like this one here, Lake Crescent. On this day the weather was pretty average but if you waited long enough enough light would appear to give you something. I had the camera perched on a rock for this one!
