Maritime Traffic

Posted July 17th, 2012 by   |  Photography  |  Permalink

A few days ago my father-in-law and I took a few nieces and nephews on a boat ride through our local waters here in the Puget Sound. During our two-hour tour, we motored through Tacoma’s Commencement Bay, Vashon Island, and Gig Harbor, WA. The morning clouds had just started to burn off, so there was quite a bit of haze obscuring the famous Mt. Rainier, but I thought the haze added an interesting look. This haze had the effect of isolating the mountain from the surrounding foot hills, so it looked as if the mountain was floating above the city.

As always, I had a camera with me and in this case brought along my Nikon D800, 24-70mm f2.8 and 70-200mm f2.8 lenses. Back at my office, I processed these images in Adobe LR4 and Nik Color Efex Pro 4.
