Beacon (best viewed large)

@gizathecat No, it's Discovery Park. The hike to this place was damn near the death of me!

Mukilteo? Or Discovery Park?
Great shot!

Both Mukilteo and Discovery Park lighthouses are down right on the water. I've not been to DP in years.....Been awhile since I've been to Mukiteo. Maybe I need to get to both one of these days.

Great night shot, the white building against the darkness makes for perfect b&w contrast. Excellent foreground details and sky. Very well captured. FAV.

@eyesofbetsie Yeah, it's a bit of a hike down that trail. Last time I was down there was in 1995. Think it's time I trek back down there?

@gizathecat I had NO IDEA! Lived here my whole life and never been so I thought today would be the day. I was completely overdressed and ill prepared for 3 hours of hiking! I hate exercise...

@webfoot @lynnb Thanks you guys. I was just laughing with my friend about where I went. She said she woulda' given me a heads up about the challenge of getting there. Had I known it would take 3 hours to complete my photo stop for the day, it's likely I woulda' chosen a different location. When you're half way there, why turn back. I looked like total shit and was nothin' less than a pack mule. It WAS worth it though. x (an exhausted) Betsie

@karenann Howdy sister! The only thing I did was omit the color, add clarity, darkened the edges and added a frame. Nothing extraordinary from what I usually do. I don't have any fancy processing software... I just use Picmonkey. (Can't afford anything right now.). Thanks for the compliment. x Betsie

@digitalrn Rick, you are very kind! Thank you for this compliment. There was a sign on the side I the lighthouse that I had to hide (they're in the process of restoring it). I had to get pretty darned crafty with my shot to get the sign out of my shot. x Betsie

I'm gonna Fav it because it soooo reminds of those 30s thrillers my wife loves so much. The clouds and long exposure are perfect.

@yarp Thanks Dan! I am having fun with the ND filter that has freaked me out for some time now. Trying to overcome my photography 'fears'... One by one.
