I needed to see how my new camera does with wide open spaces and sky shots so after another very warm day I decided we should drive over to the Des Moines marina to watch the sun go down.
As we stepped out of the car, we stopped and reached back to grab another layer. Over by the water our natural air conditioner was working very well, and the chilly breeze felt wonderful.
We walked out on the fishing pier, joining lots of other folks who had the same great idea. Looking back over the marina, Mt. Rainier was alight in alpenglow.
Airplanes were lining up to land at Sea-Tac.
What was everyone looking at? Oh, we have a visitor. The fishermen had competition!
It was all too lovely to leave so we walked over to the park.
Picnickers were still enjoying the day/evening.
The lights came on out on the pier, attracting more walkers, as we said goodbye to the day and headed home.
And I'd say my new little camera is passing the test quite well so far.
