This is the fishing pier at Des Moines Marina, in Des Moines, Washington. This time of year, fishermen are trying to catch squid out there. I took this just before Christmas near dusk. Once again, the seascape highlights the interesting cloud formations:

I used the camera's "back light" mode to take this picture. The flash went off, but it actually turned out OK. One thing you have to learn to do with a digital camera, at least if you're used to film, is to just keep experimenting until you find something that works. You can always delete from memory images you don't want.
