West Mooring Basin, Astoria

West Mooring Basin, Astoria, Oregon, with Harbor Master's Office The building, which includes the Harbor Master's office, is seen here across the calm water of the West Mooring Basin. I took the photo on a bright Sunday earlier in the year; lately Astoria has been living under a blanket of clouds and wet weather. There are quite a lot of boats in this harbor, which is larger than the East Mooring Basin on the other end of town. You only see a few of them here. As my friend Lisa and I walked around to the other side of the building, we heard music emanating from the top story, and discovered that some denomination was holding church services there. I really don't know much else about the use of this building, but I like the photo for its peaceful and scenic aspects.

Here's a link recommended by Lee at Bend, Oregon, Daily Photo showing the old port building. Thank you!

Happy Scenic Sunday, everyone.

Peaceful picture for sure but, as an old sentimentalist, I loved the look of the old Port building. It might be cool to put up a picture of it to contrast this one.

Serene; so lovely; soothing; satisfying; even a bit sensuous...

This has most of the elements I love in a photo. And the composition is right on; the colors are superb; and it's nice and sharp.

Thanks, Tapirgal!

Wonderful still water. I have to say, it really is too bad the old building isn't there any more.
