HERE COMES THE SUN – July 5, 2017

Let me start off by saying that I really do know how to spell “Declaration” and no I don’t believe our independence is “Decelerating”, but yesterday I miss typed it and the spell checker didn’t catch it. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it!

This morning we’re going to have a short walk around Coupeville. I’ve got a lot on my plate today that I’ll share with you tomorrow.

When photographing a sunrise, timing is everything, especially when you are walking. Most people would leave early, drive to a spot, get set up and wait for the sun but not me. I left early, walked as quickly as I could to a good spot and the sun was just starting to crest the Cascade Mountain Range.

Here Comes The Sun

I waited a couple of minutes and the sun was almost up and starting to shed its morning colors onto Mount Baker.

By the time I got up the trail to Coupeville Town Park and turned around the sun was up and everything was awash in gold!

Wharf Sunrise

While processing this last photo I saw what looked like a large land mass in the upper right corner, like a huge mountain or something but it’s not really there. What it turned out to be was the shadow from the cliff against a hazy sky. The sun reflecting on the water is what’s creating it, pretty cool, eh?

Finally I have another nice heritage house for you that’s for sale. It’s the Hasselgrave House built in 1890. It has been very well maintained and has a view of Penn Cove. It can be yours for a mere $529,000.

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 🙂

COUPEVILLE January 9, 2015

I left home even earlier than usual and boy was it dark. I had to use my headlight to see where I was walking and show cars exactly were I was. Despite that fact I still managed to get a couple of nice photos near the end of my walk.

This is looking east toward the Cascade Mountain Range across Penn Cove and Saratoga Passage. There was a lot of “drift” in the water even though we haven’t had any storms lately or extremely high tides. The sailboat appeared to be right in the middle of it all. I’m glad I was on shore and not cruising in my boat.


Shortly after that shot the sky got really pink and looked great behind the town of Coupeville. This was taken from the Coupeville Wharf.


As always, thanks for walking with me this week and I look forward to having you back after the weekend.
