FOGGY FALL – October 20, 2015

This morning we had fog and like my brother Ron always says, “If you have fog take fog pictures.” Good advice Bro!

Here are some samplings of our fall colors faded by a bit of the morning fog.

While this weeping tree isn’t very colorful it is kind of nice photo for the Halloween season.

It was fairly dark when I went out so I decided to try my flash on this tree. It’s rather abstract and I like it. I hope you do as well.

I hope you enjoyed that and hope you get out there and see the beautiful fall colors in your area.

COUPEVILLE SUNRISE – October 16, 2015

Oh boy I get to wrap up the week with another wonderful sunrise over Coupeville. This one was really interesting as the colors kept changing from flaming orange to pastel pink and blue.

This shot is looking east up Front Street, the old “main drag” of the town.

My friend “Frank the Heron” was standing tall in this silhouette.

A little further out on the wharf I caught Frank against the pastel beauty of Mt. Baker.

And speaking of Mt. Baker, here’s the sloop “Suva” docked at the wharf, again with Mt. Baker in the background.

What a wonderful way to end the week. I hope you have a fantastic weekend and that you can join me again next week for some more walks around Coupeville and the surrounding area.

SHERMAN’S PIONEER FARMS – October 14, 2015

This morning I walked over to Sherman’s Pioneer Farms to see how hey have their pumpkins arranged this year. I was pleased to see that they had drug this old McCormick-Deering tractor.

Here’s another view toward the other side of the farm. I love the contrast between the green grass, orange pumpkins and red buildings.

The Sherman’s always seem to display something that’s current. This year the hot ticket is “Minions” so you get “hay-round Minions”.

If you’re ever in Coupeville around Halloween be sure to swing by Sherman’s Pioneer Farms. They even have a trebuchet for Pumpkin Chunkin on the weekends.

As always, thanks for walking with me, I hope you enjoyed that.

PENN COVE SUNRISE – October 6, 2015

Good morning! There’s a stranger among us and I believe it’s me.

Sorry about the long absence but life got in the way. Actually a vacation down to my brother Ron down in Fort Bragg, California was part of it and I’ve embarked on a new project that seems to have eaten all my time lately.

I’m in the process of designing and building a teardrop trailer from scratch. It’s turning out to be an all consuming project over which I’ve become obsessed.

On my way to the equipment rental store, first thing this morning, I found myself at the west end of Penn Cove looking at an explosive sunrise. Since I always have a camera with me I stopped and took the following photos. I really hope you enjoy them.

Here’s a little closer look at the Cascade Mountain range.

This is from the west-northwest side of Penn Cove with a wharf in the foreground.

Thanks for stopping by and I do plan on getting back to walking and blogging in the not too distant future.

Have a wonderful day 🙂
