South Puget Sound

Post by micahgee » Fri Apr 30, 2010 4:01 pm

Hello fellow yakkers,

Here is a basic map of the South Puget Sound. When the weather permits, I will take my digicam and get some good pictures as I believe I find some beautiful and surprisingly isolated locations.

There are 5 inlets near Olympia alone!

Here is a map of some trips I've taken with my AF1

I am planing on taking solo and group trips this spring and summer so expect some good photos =)

Winds were pretty rough today, gusting around 25mph.

Looking NNW towards Squaxin Island (Native American Reservation) and Hope Island State Park.

I plan on doing more yakking weather and schedule permitting so expect to see more =)

Hi Micah,

Are the photo's deliberate taken this way (focus on the tip of the AE)?

If not see if your camera allows to set-up focus. You might want to choose centre spot focus.

Yes those shots are done deliberately

I'm trying to focus on the Kayak :o literally

On my next trip weather permitting (damn rain and wind), I will take better photos of the critters and the mountains!

Thanks for bumping the thread and happy yakking!

What camera are you using?
