Flowers from Another Day

Flowers from Another Day

A vase of flowers over on a side table sat unnoticed for several days longer than usual. On the way out to the yard waste, they called to me asking for a final photograph. I really like the image… it calls to me. Make sure you click on it and see the larger image. The texture and detail are quite fine.

Stonecrop and Pinesap


I enjoy the flowers that struggle to grow in rugged, rocky dry places or deep in the woods. Stonecrop and Pinesap are that kind of plant. Stonecrop growing in the dry, rocky alpine slopes of the Olympic Mountains and Pinesap growing in the woods, living without chlorophyll.

The Kennewick in Stormy Weather

The Ferry Kennewick coming in to Port Townsend

I enjoy walking in stormy weather and this October day was perfect for that. The rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains protects Port Townsend (some) but it is often very windy. Walking along the beach downtown, I noticed the ferry Kennewick coming into town. I was a little surprised, since in high winds they often cancel that ferry run.

North Coast Olympic Peninsula Panorama

North Coast Olympic Peninsula Panorama

This was the first panorama I did using my new Fujifilm GFX 50R. The .dng file came in at over 400MB … but at that resolution, you can see the Dungeness lighthouse (on the right shoreline) and ships in the harbor at Port Angeles (the left shoreline). In the distance you can see the San Juan Islands (on the right) and Vancouver Island (on the left) with the Victoria area just visible. This was taken from the Grand Ridge trail just west of Deer Park in the Olympic National Park.

Moonset over the Olympics

The new moon setting over the NE Olympic Mountains

This was October 29th, the moon at about 13.3%. I went out to the county airport to get a clear view to the SW and lucked out with the moon setting over the small patch of the Olympic Mountains visible from that location.

Shore Pine Cones

Shore Pine Cones

This is a “shore pine” (Pinus Contorta, var contorta) but is growing at over 5000 feet along Grand Ridge in the rain shadow area of the Olympic National Park. (It will be ready for any expected sea level rise, for sure).
