Sun Breaking Through Mist

Sun Breaking Through Mists on the Dungeness

When you have spent the evening listening to the sound of rain on the tent roof and you wake to heavy mists, you wonder if you will be hiking out in the rain. When you spot a sign that the mists are parting and there is sun on the ridge above, it it s wonderful feeling … bringing a sigh of relief.

Urban Deer

There are a lot of deer in Port Townsend, WA. They are considered pests by gardeners trying to grow roses (for instance). As a result of their frequent interaction with humans (mostly non-violent, except for the irate gardeners), they are very tame and unafraid. As a result, you get fawns walking right by (when they are trying to keep up with Mom).

Visionn Violets

Violets

Here’s another floral, this time using my iPad and the app Visionn. I sorta hate to admit it, but it sure is fun. There’s an element of surprise after you take the image, since the final varies from what the preview looked like. In that way, it is like waiting for your prints to come back from the developer.

Peony

Peony

We were concerned about having peony in the yard. They are notorious for attracting ants and we had an invasion of the little critters recently. But they are sure a showy bloom. I haven’t seen this variety before … and they seem to be very short lived, compared to my experience with the more typical variety.

Calla Lily

These lilies are growing in my yard. I was walking around the yard with my camera and took quite a few of this plant. I liked the way this one looks with a lot of the detail de-emphasized. It actually has a lot of texture, but I set the new Lightroom texture slider all the way down to the low extreme and really liked the effect.

Red Hot Poker

Latin name of this is Kniphofia … but everyone that I know calls them Red Hot Pokers. This is the first time that I have had one growing in my yard. They are sure a lot different than most of the rest of the flowers in the yard.
