On the left is the Washington state mainland; on the right is Whidbey Island. The island broke away from the mainland some time ago as the result of an earthquake. Facing East, this shot was taken from a nearly 1000 foot bridge over the Puget Sound. Cars were screaming by behind me, so close that the camera would shake when even the small cars passed.
Whidbey Island is home to Penn Cove, where the famous mussels come from, as well as the charmingly-named Useless Bay.
