Recently I posted a preview for the Ballard Locks. In a preview I have to try to cover a little bit of everything in order to provide all the info I think people might be looking for. So I didn’t emphasize one of the greatest things about the place as much as I would have liked. The Ballard Locks and Garden are a veritable playground for photographers.
Unless you only prefer sweeping landscapes in your photography, there’s something here to appeal to almost everyone. Enjoy older architecture? Check. Enjoy flowers? Check. Enjoy boats? Check. Enjoy birds? Check. Enjoy trains and tracks? Check.
So here’s a few more of my photos from my two outings that didn’t fit into the preview gallery that give an idea of the range of photo subjects. I had terrible light on my first day there, so if I have one piece of advice it’s that if you’re going specifically for photographic purposes, choose a day with light suitable for your subjects. Once there, wander everywhere and let your camera play.
