Looks can be deceiving

> As a photographer friend recently noted after sending me an “edited” wildlife image, you can’t necessarily believe what you see in today’s high-tech/digital world. This photo of a U.S. Navy A6 aircraft is a case in point. The “retired” jet is part of an eye-grabbing static display on Highway 20 in Oak Harbor, just a few miles from NAS Whidbey’s Ault Field. I used editing tools in Photoshop to erase heavy support posts so the aircraft appears to be in flight. Stay tuned for the photo of my walk on the moon…

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
