Images from the train

Some of the prettiest scenery on the Amtrak Cascades is the 10 miles or so just north of Olympia when the train hugs the Puget Sound.

This time of year, we hit this part of the journey around sunset and every Friday night we are rewarded with some glorious sights and colors. If we are lucky enough, the sun dips just below the Olympic mountain range and turns the sky all shades.

A few weeks ago, I took these shots of the Narrows Bridge, but the fading light was amazing last week so I snapped a few more.

Do you see the heart in the sky?

Just for the record, I used my Android phone (T-Mobile MyTouch) and played around a bit with the camera settings for an "antique" slightly retro look to the photos.
