Leaving Fishermen's Terminal


Photo & Text Copyright 2006 Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved, including reproduction or republishing.

After the rain, a boat leaving Fisherman's terminal makes its way through Salmon Bay at sunset. The fish and seafood prices at Fisherman's Terminal tend to be lower than at the famous fish tosser's stand at Pike Place Public Market on the Elliot Bay waterfront. One doesn't get the tourist's floor show, but one can walk real docks lined with working fishing vessels, and scroll through the names adorned with flowers and tributes at the touching fisherman's memorial. The hill behind is the back side of the Magnolia neighborhood.

The water trail intrigues me--wonderful capture. Can you or have you posted the fisherman's memorial?

Nice light! I would be OK for a cruise on the Puget Sound on such a boat one of these days :)

Thank you one and all for your kind comments. To answer the question about the colors: I didn't do anything to the shot except crop a handrail out in the foreground. The sky was so spectacular I have about 20 shots as the sun set, and it was mostly pink and orange, very different from this one.
