How do I feel about this fine Monday morning? Interpret any way you like…
Mount Rainier at sunrise as winter clouds were rolling in, shot from Madrona Park in Seattle. HDR (high dynamic range) image – a blend of three exposures using the Lightroom LR/Enfuse plugin.
Mount Rainier. Shot at sunrise from Madrona Park in Seattle.
Bald Eagles in flight. Shot near Diablo Lake in the Cascade Mountains.
Shot on one of my walks high in the Cascade Mountains. This was the point where I had to turn back – I was too cold to continue.
This was taken on our Seattle WordPress photo walk. From left to right – David, Emily, Jolene, and me.
I took a walk today to bring some treats to the horses. I ran out of carrots before I got to Sticks. He didn’t take it well.
Mountains peeking out through a hole in the clouds. Shot near Darrington, Washington, on a rainy winter morning.
The birds were enjoying a peaceful moment on the grass, getting some sun, and then the dog showed up…
Raven flying through the trees. Shot near Diablo Lake in the Cascade Mountains.
These two shots show my impression of the character of downtown Seattle. Social activism, tourists, shopping, and a guy on the street just trying to get some food.
I have found some great photographers (and very nice people) through WordPress, and yesterday three of them met up with me in Seattle to do a photo walk. Thanks to Jolene (http://jolenehansonphotos.wordpress.com/), David (http://photosbydavid.wordpress.com/), and Emily (http://emilygoochphotos.wordpress.com/) for a great day. A few shots for now, more later.
Getting a little too close to the gum wall.
Watching a protest rally.

Late afternoon at Diablo Lake. Shot from the east end of the lake, looking west towards Davis Peak.
An open letter to Annie.
Today I was on a walk around the ranch. You came running out to see me, I reached into the doggie-treat pocket of my jacket, and it was empty. You were forced to wait almost two minutes on slightly damp grass before I could get some treats and return.
In front of the entire world (those of you on the internet – please print this out for the rest) I would like to apologize. I let you down and I ask for your forgiveness. I hope that someday we can rebuild the love and trust that we once had.
To the world – thank you for your time and attention. My normal posts of birds, more birds, even more birds, creepy abandoned buildings, and the occasional horse will resume tomorrow.
(Note to self – need to get one of the horses up to Northern State Hospital so I can get a shot of a horse in front of a creepy abandoned building with a bird flying over…)
Farm near Darrington, Washington.
Had a pretty good photo shoot in the mountains today. More to come. 🙂
Early morning at Kirkland Marina Park. I seem to have pretty good luck photographing birds. Here I was setting up a shot of buildings lit up by the morning sun and a string of ducks flew by.
A slightly lopsided Valentine heart in the sky. Produced by the Tesoro oil refinery near Anacortes, WA.
I’m a bit decrepit and under the weather today so I decided to post a shot that looks like I feel. This is a rusty overgrown circuit breaker panel attached to an abandoned building at Northern State Hospital.
