This morning turned out great and I hope you enjoy the walk.
Being a “walking” photographer it can be hard to time things with the sun and the weather. There are just so many variables that change so quickly.
Some days it looks promising and like last Friday which was a wash out. Other days start to develop but by the time I get to a good spot it has fizzled.
This morning it looked a little iffy with lots of clouds around but as I got closer to the prairie I could see that sun was just kissing the tops of the Olympic Mountain Range. I kept walking faster and faster to try and find the best photo spots. I was almost running the last mile. But it was all worth it.
Instead of it fading fast it just kept getting better and better. This was taken above Ebey’s Landing overlooking Admiralty Inlet with the Port Townsend Lighthouse just below the Olympics.
There is a historical marker just above Ebey’s Landing, where I took the above photo, that tells of the location where Colnel Isaac N. Ebey was not just “killed by Indians” but beheaded. I don’t remember the whole story but it was a revenge killing for the killing of a chief’s son. Ebey did not kill the chief’s son but was in a position of power so they chose him to get even.
On my way back I spotted my friends Al-the-Walker and Deborah walking the high ridge along Ebey Reserve. I’m sure they were getting a spectacular view from up there.
Here’s how far away they were and then the closest I could get with my telephoto.
And that starts the last week of January 2016, hard to believe. Thanks for walking with me I always enjoy the company.
