SPECTACULAR OLYMPICS – January 21, 2015

For the first time since my prostate cancer surgery and radiation treatments a year ago I walked over 3.5 miles and out to the middle of Ebey Prairie. I walked 4.78 miles and it felt pretty good. What made it feel “Real Good” was the spectacular sunrise on the Olympic Mountains.

How many miles would you walk for photos like these?

I hope you enjoy them.

And just for good measure I threw in a Photoshopped “Art Photo” that I took at Sherman’s Pioneer Produce Farm just for good measure.

Thanks for walking with me today and with any luck we’ll do it again tomorrow!

SPECTACULAR SUNRISE Jan 07-2015

I hope you walked yesterday because I did but I had an appointment on the mainland and didn’t get a blog posted.

This morning I left the house in the dark with some fog rolling in. I didn’t expect much in the way of photo-ops but to my surprise we had a spectacular sunrise! These were two of my favorites although there were many more. Also these are pretty much straight out of the camera with very little “tuning”. I hope you enjoy them.

Those were taken out on Ebey Prairie. When I got back into town it was foggy. Here is Coupeville from the wharf.

On my way home I spotted a tiny little bird that was flitting all around and impossible to photograph. I chased it around for a while using the “burst” on my camera, 12 frames per second. I finally captured the little guy. It’s a Golden-crowned Kinglet and I don’t believe I’ve noticed them before around town.
