FOGGY BARNS – February 24, 2015

This morning’s walk took me on a loop out to the Ebey Prairie and back through Coupeville. It was another beautiful morning but there was some tule fog on the prairie that made for a couple of nice photos.

This first one is of the Sherman’s Pioneer Farm barns with a layer of tule fog down low, or is that “On the down low?” 😉

Not far from there I captured this farmhouse with the Olympic Mountains standing tall.

Back in Coupeville I thought I’d share a photo of “town”. The historic center of Coupeville is Front Street which is about two blocks long. This photo is looking up Front Street to the sunrise in the east.

And that wrapped up our walk for today. I’m not sure what tomorrow will bring as sprinkles are coming back into the forecast. If I do get out for a walk please come join me, I always enjoy your company 🙂

REFLECTIONS – February 18, 2015

Oh boy another beautiful morning with another fabulous sunrise. I stayed close to town this morning and was rewarded with a few spectacular photographs, at least I think they are spectacular 😉

On my way to the Coupeville Wharf I noticed the flat water of Penn Cove reflecting the lights that run along the ramp to the wharf. I just had to set up my tripod and “push de button”.

When I got out on the wharf things just kept getting better and better. I love the reflection of this sailboat in the morning sunrise.

Looking back at Coupeville the sunrise just kept exploding in the sky.

I really hope you enjoyed that as much as I did. Isn’t it amazing what you see when you walk with me? Thanks for the company 🙂

PASTEL MORNING

Another beautiful morning for a very chilly walk. While I know 30 degrees F isn’t all that chilly to a lot of you suffering from the current cold blast from the north, 30 is chilly here on the island!

I bundled up and decided to take you on a walk down to the Coupeville Wharf. Some of these photos are sort of a repeat of yesterday but I just couldn’t help myself what with the wonderful pastel sky.

The first sighting though was the old fuel dock ramp heading out of Penn Cove. All the work is done and we now have a shinny new dock and ramp.

Looking west to the wharf the sky displayed a beautiful gradient of pastel colors.

Out on the wharf Mt. Baker took the spotlight. I like both of these photos.

On the way back home I couldn’t resist sharing just one more photo of Mt. Baker, it’s such a spectacular mountain with the beautiful white snow covering.

Enjoy your Hump Day, it’s all downhill from here.

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 🙂
