A Break In the Gloom

In contrast to the flat, featureless light shown Wednesday, both sky and water had texture and variety on Thursday.


This is the Calm Seas, headed for Astoria’s anchorage a few minutes after sunset. ISO 200, 1/200, f/8 @ 85mm.  70-300mm “G” zoom.

The ship’s and my own course were roughly parallel, and as I tracked it to the anchorage, I noted a lifeboat making rapid eastward headway.  I had just enough time to change lenses and catch it as it entered the East Mooring Basin, readying for a crew change.


ISO 800, 1/30, f/2.8 @ 50mm.  16-50mm zoom.
