Black Ball Ferry Line - Port Angeles, WA to Victoria, BC

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy this chain of posts!

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best Washington's coast photos from this trip, use this link.

Today I travel from Port Angeles, WA to Victoria, BC, Canada via the Black Ball Ferry Line. The photos for today are taken from the Black Ball Ferry Line.

Waiting for the ferry in the waiting parking lot of the Black Ball Ferry Line.

 Here is a photo of the cars waiting to get on. It sure was one massive ship! 

Still waiting, I shot a photo of a house in the middle of the ocean. I thought it made a nice simple shot.  

I went ahead and did a black and white process of the image with no vignette correction. I thought the vignette created a really nice effect on the black and white.  

 Here is a photo of the building of Black Ball Ferry Line for passenger only customers. Since we were going to drive in Canada, we had to ferry our car over too. 


Here is a photo of the ship I shot at sunset in the previous post.  

Now I board the ferry. 

That building I shot above in black and white, here is a side on view of it from the ship.  

The people riding the ferry.  

 Another photo of the people riding the ferry. 


Here is a photo of the upper deck. It was cold so not a lot of people sat outside. The inside cabin is heated.  

Out in the middle of the ocean...

 Here is another long exposure in the car storage area. 

Here is a photo of the Canadian Customs. My Joby Gorillapod Focus sure came in handy this trip.
