MOONLIGHT LIGHT

Another beautiful morning walking around Coupeville and the Ebey Prairie. I walked from one side of the island to the other and back taking way too many photos. Even though I took  bunch I hope you can take the time to look at them all.

The sunrise was spectacular once again.

The moon was still full and it caught my attention as I walked under a light pole. It made me think of what it would be like if instead of sodium-vapor streetlights they were all moonlight.

Here’s a little closer look at that light source.

I walked along the bluff trail to Ebey’s Landing. The morning light was really wonderful.

Where the bluff trail turns east you can look down on the beach where I saw a group of fisherman trying to lure the illusive salmon.

From there on the birds got all of my attention. When I took this picture I thought it was better than it turned out but still it was interesting to see a blackbird attacking a hawk.

Heading back across the prairie I caught this hawk in flight. It was cruising the fields looking for small critters.

Back on the north side of the island, out on the wharf, I spotted this Great Blue Heron down on the dock. I don’t know why it was looking at this small space between docks, I don’t think it could catch any fish there.

As I was walking off the wharf I spotted these seagulls swimming, flying and sitting on the beach. I thought it was an interesting photo.

And finally I spotted these birds sitting on the dock. It’s Al and Deborah, two friends that I cross paths with on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s. Those are the days they walk and they walk ten miles each day. I think Deborah walks every day.

What a great way to wrap up this week. I’m not sure what next week will be like as rain is in the forecast. Have a great weekend.

  1. Delightful photos Kenny especially the one with the layered pink- orange clouds and silhouetted trees. The hawk and crow photo is actually quite good as the blurring conveys the active motion of the conflict. Thanks for taking the time and effort to share this beautiful area with us.
