  1. Red white & blew blew me away..great set! Thanks for sharing – ds

  2. Amazing pictures. That’s all i have to tell you 🙂 Really awesome job!

  3. exquisite photos….as always….a great EYE😜

  4. Absolutely beautiful shots, Jane. I especially like the “first mate!” We hope to explore that part of the country next year. You’ve given us some great ideas of where to go.

  5. Great collection of photos, that, like a puzzle, complete the picture of the harbour more and more.

  6. Stunnings composition! I love ❤ "Contemplation" but, all are magnificent! have a nice weekend 🙂

  7. The Puget Sound is one of the most scenic places. Glad you found another tall ship.

  8. This looks like such a beautiful place to be, Jane, and your photographs are just magnificent.
    I especially love the lighthouse. Simply perfect.

  9. Taking the ferry boat ride to Friday Harbor is one of my most favorite things in this world.

  10. I love the first picture best. It is simply enchanting. 😊

  11. Particularly drawn to ” Good old days ” photo… Struck a nostalgic cord I suppose…

  12. I’ve never been an old timey sailor so I can’t say I felt nostalgic, but I did think the photos were lovely, Jane.

  13. I love the colors and reflections in that second photo, Jane.
    Ω

  14. I feel the call of the sea. I need to head off for a nice adventure …. 😀

  15. A group of lovely photographs which work well together.

  16. Fabulous post Jane! Enjoyed these images very much! 🙂

  17. You’ve captured some beautiful sentiments of nostalgia within these photos ~ there is something about ports around the Puget Sound area that seem to take me back to the times when old fishing villages were places of discovery around the world… And then you dot the ‘i’ in discovery with the story-telling photos that follow. And incredible series, the dog in the boat brings such a great smile 🙂 Very happy to see you treat Friday Harbor so well with this post. Wonderful work Jane ~

  18. Such a pretty series…everyone beautifully framed.

  19. Once again, lovely images from an area I have been many a time myself. I love how you tell the story of Friday Harbor with both overviews and close-ups.

  20. A very appealing serie of photographs, It made me feel at home as I live by the ocean with fishingboats and a tiny harbour.

  21. Excelentes imágenes, Jane. Saludos.

  22. Would you care to say how you processed “Lighthouse Memory”? I like the textured feel to that one.

  23. Gorgeous shots … Amazing light, love the way you captured it!

  24. Very cool photos Jane – I especially like the first one and the B&W. Looks like a beautiful day!

  25. Oh. I went there years back… Got some decent shots in!

    • Hi Rajiv, I’m so glad you have been there. Hope you saw some Orcas. Thanks!

      • Nope! That was a strange trip. I was in the corporate world those days… I flew 36 hours from Shanghai to San Juan for a 36 hour conference (including sleep time!). So many of us stayed back for a day…. Shall… maybe.. post some stuff next week

        • Now that’s a whirlwind business trip, Rajiv!

          • That is the problem with these corporate trips. I used to get flown into The Netherlands for a 4 hour meeting. So, I would try and fix meetings with other people around the official meeting. The trick was always to try and get someone to take you for lunch. Especially in the NL

            Not so, in our office in Switzerland. Now, my travels are confined to cheap hotels in India! But, I enjoy them more

  26. I love the first mate! You really captured the beauty if the islands. Aren’t you happy to miss this evacuation scene!!!!!!

  27. Hi Jane great and wonderful pictures my favorites is 1,5,6,8, and the last one.

  28. Clever use of the San Juans captures Jane – beautiful as always. Love the First Mate 😊

  29. Especially loved the depth of field in Contemplation. Can’t imagine how you did that.

  30. I love the sea…always beautiful Jane ☺️ have a happy day smiles Hedy 😀
