The "Narrows"

Hello followers and visitors! We recently had an opportunity to visit Portland, Oregon, and decided to go via the train. Along a portion of the route near Tacoma, Washington, the rails are located right along the edge of Puget Sound. At one point we slipped under the Tacoma Narrows Bridge and snapped these pics with the iPhone.**  The Narrows Bridge is truly a beautiful landmark that really doesn't seem to get the attention it deserves. It's very similar in design to the Golden Gate.




From the same trip, here are a few more "trackside" photos ...

Puget Sound ...


Typical countryside away from cities ...





Couldn't resist including this one.  Although completely out-of-focus, we like the composition and red barn out in such a green field beyond the trees.


Thank you for stopping by John's Island.

  8. Hello John !
    Thanks for your comments at my blog, nice with new friends !
    To your question about my profile picture, yes it is the EF 500 f4 L IS USM you see at the picture. The new 5d mark III will be a top device i think. I'm very satisfied with my mark II and use it with the macro and wide angel lens, and at the microscope pics if you saw them at an earlier post. With the 500 mm i use the 1d mk IV because of the 10 frames pr second, perfect match !

  11. I have never been out that way - I would love too though. Love your description - trying to find the gold in the golden years. I tried to look it up once to see how that phrase got coined. lol sandie
