Three Crabs, Sequim

I am linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences
I hope you can join in on the fun and share your fence scenes and pretty skies.

For my Skywatch Friday and Good Fences I am sharing some more scenes from Washington state, the sunrise in Port Angeles and the sunset at Sequim. I hope you enjoy, we had a great trip with wonderful memories.



The sunrise and moon were taken one morning in Port Angeles.

Below is the view of the Dungeness Bay at Three Crab Road  in Sequim Washington. I read that this was a birding hotspot so I had to check it out while I was in the area. As you can see in the photo below there are a thousand or more American Wigeons, two Bald Eagles on a stump sticking out the water in the distance. It was a great spot to watch the sun setting.


The lighting was not the best for photos, but seeing the all these ducks was an amazing sight.


One of my lifers above was the Anna's Hummingbird. The birds ( Anna's hummingbird and the Oregon Junco)  above were seen in a Sequim neighborhood we were visiting.


A reflection of the sky on the Dungeness Bay, Sequim Washington. It may not be much of a fence, but the area was fenced off and a warning sign posted to stay off the property.

Another beyond the rope fence look  at the Wigeons on the left and the next two shots of a few Dowitchers behind the rope fence.



For my skywatch, a golden sunset with the Dungeness Lighthouse, Cormorants & gulls and the duck silhouettes at Dungeness Bay, Three Crab Road.



A beautiful sunset in Sequim, Washington. I hope you enjoyed my images and post. Thanks for stopping by for a visit and for your nice comments. Have a happy day and weekend ahead.

To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and check for more fence shots at Tex's Good Fences

Thanks to Theresa @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences and thanks to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday.    I wish everyone a happy day and weekend ahead..
