Whidbey Island, Christmas Day

Whidbey Island approach, during storm, weird light

I took these photographs on Christmas Day, 2011, aboard a ferry approaching Whidbey Island, in Puget Sound, during a strange and, as it happened, deadly windstorm. The photos have not been modified in any way, though some detail has been lost due to compression for posting on this site.
