Skywatch Friday Mix

Skagit Bay

Over the last few days, I have been taking test shots with the new Canon Powershot G7 X Mark II camera.  I have been trying to get the hang of it and learn what I can expect from this little pocket camera.  As it turned out, many of the photos had some interesting skies.  This is Skagit Bay, my usual Skywatch shot this afternoon.

The Kukutali Preserve

From this morning, this is Kiket Island in Skagit Bay with its connecting tombolo in the Kukutali Preserve.  The Preserve is owned and managed jointly by Washington State Parks and the Swinomish Tribal Community.  Kiket Island is a traditional site of seasonal food gathering for the Swinomish.

Flagstaff Island and tombolo in the Kukutali Preserve this morning.  Flagstaff is a wildlife sanctuary and fragile habitat, off limits to humans.  Tombolos are sandspits created by currents that connect islands to the mainland or to other islands.
