Sky Watchers

This morning the skies cleared and afforded this early morning shot across Port Townsend Bay toward the Olympic Mountains. The cormorants in the foreground appear to be sky watching while soaking up some early morning sun. Our beautiful fall day has been a welcome relief from days of stormy weather.

What a wonderful atmosphere in this shot! Love the sky as obviously do the cormorants!

Not the prettiest birds in the world (who am I to talk?!), but they are amazing to watch diving deep into the water. I wish I could visit the coast more. It's nearly an hour away from Willits.

Beautiful scene, and I love those cormorants.

Neat SWF. Are those clouds or fog in the mountains? We dont have the mountains so I am pretty dumb.

How beautiful this sky is with the misty mountains. The coromants know what they are doing!

superbe contrasme entre le ciel (le brouillard des montagnes) et les ombres des oiseaux.

I do like a cormorant, but so many. This is my favourite shore bird of the island. This is a serene skywatch.
