West Seattle scenes: Duwamish Head sunset; harlequin ducks

Two shoreline scenes to share tonight: First, thanks to Alki photographer David Hutchinson for tonight’s vivid late-fall sunset. According to the current forecast, we have one more clear day ahead – then clouds might start moving back in around this time tomorrow night, with an anticipated return to wet weather. Temperatures are expected to stay a bit above normal, though tonight, with the clear sky, will be cold. Looking ahead to the big holiday events next weekend – all listed in the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide – might be rainy, but you know what they say about making predictions this far out …

Second, just received while we were processing David’s photo, Aaron Baggenstos shares this view of harlequin ducks photographed at Lincoln Park:

    Look at those first two ducks! It looks like a Harlequin Romance!

    That’s a FANTASTIC shot !! You can’t tell that just 20 feet to the left is Alki Avenue and a street full of condos. The wall just isolates the shot and makes it appear almost like a wilderness. You’d never know it’s West Seattle.

    Just beautiful !

    That’s a picture I’d sure like to have on my wall.
