It's a tough place to make a photograph. No flash allowed and pretty dark overall. A great place to take out of towner folks.
I walk around the Ballard Locks quite a bit, it is a great place all four seasons of the year. It was a spectacular summer the salmon runs have been large and long running. Those two were taken yesterday since I am working night shifts for a month and it was nice to be out and about during a weekday.
For the two shots above just set the aperture to wide open, f3.8, the M9 to AE and held the M9 tight against the railing on the level above the observation deck.
