Wind and Waves

Coast Guard Boat, Maritime Museum, Astoria, Oregon April 10, 2010
Alongside the Maritime Museum on the River Walk
46°11'22.81"N 123°49'23.81"W

On the south side of the Columbia River Maritime Museum is a tall glass window with a display inside of a real Coast Guard boat lodged at a rakish angle on resin waves. A recording produces the sounds of the pounding sea and the exchange of boat captains navitaging perilous waters. In today's Weekend Reflections photo you can also see Coxcomb Hill and the Astoria Column, the museum parking lot, and a wind-tossed photographer.

I was confused when looking at the thumbnail of your reflected image. Clever and creative.

This is one of the best I've seen this weekend, maybe I'm just partial to boats heaving! Hope you have a sunny afternoon!

This is a great reflection shot! I was in Astoria several years ago, and loved it!

Terrible wind even in your sister city, taking pictures was a real effort today. You caught a lot of things (and a person) with this reflection.
