Rippling Greens Of The Sea

Description: Same body of water as yesterday’s photo, the Puget Sound takes on many forms.

A long shutter speed and side light helped with these waves created while crossing from Mukilteo to Clinton.

I don’t ride the Washington State Ferry boats much these days, but there was a time when it was a regular occurrence. And on those repetitive trips, it’s hard to find something new to photograph. If you search through this site, you’ll find a few nights photos since, in the winter, it was usually dark coming or going to Whidbey Island.

But when the sun was out and just right, I loved taking longer shutter images of the waves rippling off the side of the massive ferry as it brought us safely across the Puget Sound.
