I camped on the island for one night. It was magical.
This has become one of my go-to places for sunsets…the way the sun hits the horizon illuminating the water and boats is sumptuous.
One advice is to scour your neck of the woods and find vantage points for sunrise and sunset. Ideally they would be no more than 20 minutes drive from your home. When the sky is beginning to look crazy grab your gear and head out.
I am always on the lookout for more spots like this. There is not much worse than seeing an incredible sky and not having a spot to make for. Well, actually there is a LOT worse than that, but you get the idea.
This first shot really does it for me, and to be perfectly honest I did not even see the light shining into the boat cabin until I got home!
The thing that I love about this image is the markings on the deck of the boat. I am guessing that they are from ropes which had been coiled there.
This last shot…what to say? The abandoned boat in the foreground has been pictured by me many times…and yet I am sure to return!
Oh, and by the way, this location is on the Bayview-Edison Road, Here is the map.
Edison is a small town in NW Washington, not far from Puget Sound. Located in Skagit County, Edison is just north of the town, Bow, along Chuckanut Drive. Heading west, passing through town the Bayview-Edison Road zig-zags and soon comes to a cause-way type bridge over the slough.
These next 4 images are from just before the sun crested the horizon…
I am not normally a “boat person” so I am not too sure how I would up with so many boating images this year, but I did and here are the best of them!
