Deception Pass

Deception Pass
Deception Pass is a waterway between Fidalgo and Whidbey Islands in the in the straits of San Juan. It connects Skagit Bay with the straits and was named by Captain George Vancouver in 1792. This photo was taken from the Deception Pass bridge which connects the two islands. The bridge is 177 feet high and was built in in the 1930's. Some of our children and grandchildren visited over the holidays and I was out with our son-in-law on a photoigraphic expedition.

Well now I feel sorry for old George Vancouver, trying to make his way through that coast without charts! The tiny human figure in the center of the photo was fun to spot.

No GPS for old George.

Wondered if anyone would spot the figure.

Well done, Ron. I like how you put the trees in the foreground. It's one of the things I need to work on in my landscape photography, getting some interest in the foreground. When you see the pass when the tide is changing and the current is running fast and furious you really appreciate the skill and bravery of guys like Vancouver.
