STYLIZED

I have to go off island, across the pond, to the mainland today so walked early. Of course not even one month into winters darkness it was “dark”! It was still dark when I got home so not much to share in the world of photography.

I did take one photo of Coupeville from the wharf which was really too dark to make a “good” photo. So, Photoshop! Yep I stylized it and here is the result.

It gives it a whole new look but I like the pure pictures like the banner photo at the top of this blog a lot better.

SLIPPERY SLOPE

This morning it was quite slippery out as we had freezing fog and frost overnight. I had to be careful, especially on the hills. Downhill was the worst but I managed to stay upright for the duration.

Despite a dark slippery start it turned out to be a beautiful morning and I got lots of very nice photos for you all to enjoy.

The weather prognosticators are saying that we are in for a change. Here’s the forecast of the week.

By golly I do believe they might be right. This ominous cloud bank coming from the west caught my attention.

We did have a beautiful sunrise which set this tree ablaze.

Mt. Baker was looking spectacular with all the fresh snow piling up.

And I just can’t seem to get enough great photos of the wharf. This morning’s light was really special.

Now back to work for many of you that are going to work for the first time this year. For all you others, enjoy 🙂

A DARK STORMY MORNING

Happy New Year all. This is my first post of 2014 and just one of many to come. I hope you take time to walk with me this year and see all the wonder that I see.

This morning was dark and windy making it look quite stormy out but in reality it was just “dark and windy”.

The tide was way in this morning and the waves were lapping away at the dingy dock.

This silhouette of the walnut tree, that was planted in the early 1900’s by either Capt. Thomas Coupe, founder of Coupeville, or his wife Maria, caught my eye this morning and after a wee bit of Photoshop I liked the results.

Have a great year ahead and once again, thanks for walking with me.
