Quinalt Rain forest is very nice although a bit of a drive.

Ruby beach, Rialto beach a definate,  Sol Duc Falls absolutely,
Hurricane Ridge (and hill if up to the climb)
Hope for partly cloudy skies.   The sunshine kills the images in the forest

I did a search, but couldn't find any references....

I'm going to Port Townsend and the area for the first time in August and know that it's beautiful, but what are you favorate spots ?  What's your preferred time of day for that spot ??  And if it isn't on the map, how do you get there???

I'm looking forward to a great week of driving, hiking and shooting!!

Thanks for your help.

Cheers,
Hugh

Try for the well-kept Victorian homes and stores around town. This works well in tight shots with cloudy bright skylight.

Kinda gives you something to do in the middle of the day.

The architectural detail is spectacular on PT.

Hop the Keystone ferry and go over to Whidbey Island for the day.  Coupeville is loaded with nice victorian homes, plus there's a great marsh for birds right at the ferry terminal on Whidbey.  Several state parks around there, too.  Head through Oak Harbor and go to Deception Pass.  In Coupeville, have lunch (a big bowl of Pen Cove mussels and steamer clams) and a microbrew at Toby's Tavern, if I recall the name correctly.  

My mind is drawing a big blank on the name right now, but there's a terrific Rhododendron preserve over there, too.  Lots more flowers than rhodies, too.    

edit-  I finally remembered- It's the Meerkirk Rhododendrond Preserve, south (?) of the ferry terminal past Greenbanks- edit

Terrific sunrises at Fort Worden in Port Townsend, too.  Lots of great architecure shots among the buildings at the fort, too, and a marine aquarium on the pier.  Ships pass very close to the lighthouse, and the lighthouse isn't bad either, when you find the right angles.  If you're into boats, also go to the wooden boat school in PT itself.

edit- See which weekend festivals or fairs are under way in PT, also.  Locals note that PT has 52 weekly festivals per year, so there's always something going on.- edit
