Chasing The Sunset: A Photographic Journey By Davia Kaopua

8:47 when I first have the idea to rush to Deception Pass and try and catch the sunset.  I knew it was unlikely as the sun was already pretty low, but I thought I would give it a shot anyways

At 8:50 my brother and I have hit the open road

It’s 8:57 and I have my brother try and get a shot of the trains as we’re driving past.  It’s a little blurry but still pretty nice

9:00 and I’m a little worried at how low the tank is

Luckily at 9:03 we’re crossing the Anacortes bridge and pretty near a gas station

At 9:06 we fill up at the reservation because it always has the best gas prices

21:15 On our way to Oak Harbor and Jake (my brother) snaps a nice picture of Campbell Lake

9:24 and we arrive at deception pass too late to catch the sun going down, we did get this pic though!

It’s 9:27 and we are under deception pass trying to get a cool underneath shot of the bridge

9:37- Jake, with his superior upper body strength and willingness to do my bidding, climbs onto the bridge to get a good picture

It is 9:44, and even though we didn’t get the sunset we sought, we managed to get some pretty good pictures, as a reward we head into Anacortes to hit up the best dessert place in town

9:45 and we have arrived at the Donut House (in case you were wondering the adress is 2719 Commercial Ave, Anacortes, WA 98221)

Thus concludes this Photographic Journey.  Special thanks to my brother Jacob who took all the moving car shots, and climbed onto the deception pass bridge (which may be illegal).
