Thanks to Dustin T. Smith for sharing his sunset view of the Olympic Mountains and the centennial-celebrating Alki Point Lighthouse. (If you’re interested in the technical points of the image, Dustin posted notes on the photo page he shared via the WSB Flickr group.) Looks like more sunset views ahead this week, with a rainless forecast stretching days ahead.


  1. Another beauty shot :) Gorge!

  5. Dustin, where did you take the picture? Each time I try to take a picture the lighthouse is closed off with fences. Great picture, btw.

  6. Thanks mz. Getting to the right location is tricky. You have to wait for a low tide and then access the beach from south of the lighthouse and then walk north along the beach until you round the point. I was able to take this shot from the north edge of the lighthouse property, on the beach side.

  8. Mr. Smith, I just went to to your photo stream on Flickr… WOW! You are SO dang gifted and amazing! I’ve never seen work like yours. The City of Seattle or the Tourist/Business Association should hire you as their official photographer, or at least the ‘poet laureate’ equivelant. Amazing and deliciously colorful. (But look what grand material you get to work with, we are so blessed here!)
