Minus tides are pretty cool – lots of things are exposed that usually aren’t. Of course, a lot of the stuff that is exposed I’d broadly characterize as “muck”. This was one of the cooler sites – it is the pilings for an old pier at Whidbey Island. We were walking around at low tide on Whidbey over the Fourth of July this year when I got this shot. Normally, I’d be several feet underwater if it wasn’t for the minus tide.
