Geese on the shore of Puget Sound near Lincoln Park in West Seattle

A pair of Canadian geese sit on the shoreline of Puget Sound in West Seattle at Lincoln Park.

Several years ago, during the heat of August,

forest fires in British Columbia spread smoke into the atmosphere around western Washington.

The smoke particles in the hot summer air created some spectacular sunsets for a few days.

Here one evening our west facing family room lit up in bright orange hues.

Knowing the color in the sky would fade quickly I grabbed my camera bag

(always charged, memory cards installed and ready to go at a moment’s notice)

and drove over the hill to the Fauntleroy Ferry Dock which connects West Seattle, Vashon Island and the Kitsap Peninsula at Southworth.

The sky was the most spectacular orange I’ve ever seen, it was so saturated it colored everything, in orange hues.

I got off a number of marvelous shots, and then as the last light was fading,

I noticed this pair of Canadian geese at the salty water’s edge.

There almost wasn’t enough light to get a shot at all,

and the results look a bit like an impressionistic painting in oils.
