On the shore of Puget Sound watching the rain roll in.
I’m guessing there are a few readers out there thinking “We like landscapes, lakes, mountains, and stuff – but give us a break!” So here are some shots of the critters that I encountered on yesterday’s photo roadtrip through eastern Washington.
Run squirrel run!!!
This guy was not happy to see me – he made it clear that it was HIS park, and I was just visiting.
I did some rock climbing on this trip – more pictures from that coming soon. This little guy was nice enough to pose for me as I took a break on the way up.
A woodchuck. I waited for a while but no chucking of wood was seen. Maybe he was on a break.
I’d like to thank this raven for not pooping on me when he flew over.
I was exploring yesterday and decided to check out Baker Lake. Something seemed to be missing. What could it be? Water! The lake is part of a hydroelectric system and, as you can see, sometimes the power company lets the water level get pretty low. I shot these pictures standing on the lake bed about 100 yards from the end of the boat ramp.
Took a photowalk around Bellingham, Washington with fellow WordPress bloggers Emily, David, and David’s daughter Cait. We were all getting tired after a full day of walking and shooting but we decided to make one last stop before heading home. I think it was worth it. This is a panoramic shot created from 12 exposures. You can see a larger version by clicking or going to my
The Ballard Locks (a.k.a. the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks) are used to allow ships to travel between Lake Washington and Puget Sound. They are needed because the water level of the lake is higher than Puget Sound – about 26 feet higher at low tide. Maintenance work was being done on the smaller of the two locks so I took the opportunity to get some pictures.
Saturday is the night of the “supermoon” – a full moon when it is closest to earth. Has not happened for 18 years. (Thanks to Sean for the clarification!) I don’t know if we will have clear skies on Saturday so I decided to get a shot of the almost-supermoon tonight. This was done with my Nikon D7000 camera, a tripod, and an 18-200mm zoom lens. Settings were ISO 100, f/5.6, 1/125 second exposure.
