Large Madrone

Large Madrone

This is one of the most spectacular Madrones that I have ever seen. Just a magnificent tree. There are three deer underneath… a young one is laying down and one is walking away and it’s tail is just visible to the left of the tree.

This is Fort Worden St Park, Port Townsend.

Madrone Walk

The madrone along this section of roadway/walkway really have nice sinuous curves. Much more sensual than the surrounding fir and hemlock.

Icy Fir Branch

I was waiting for the sun to break through a clearing to blacklight the snow and ice on this fir. My fingers started getting really cold. I was just about to give up when the sun came through for just about 5 seconds.

The Bailey Range from Hurricane Ridge

I was up at Hurricane Ridge (Olympic National Park) with my snowshoes and camera on President’s Day Monday. It never cleared off completely, but I was able to get a view across the valley of the Elwha to the central part of the Bailey Range.

Beach House and Madrone

DSC_1644

This was just at sunset and the colors were really warm… a lot warmer than the air temp. This place sure has a spectacular view … I took this while I was standing waiting for the sun to set so I could try to get a photo of the crescent moon (photo of that here).

The location is at the end of Marrowstone Island just southeast of Port Townsend, WA. The water is Puget Sound.

Winter Trail

DSC_1593

The lowland forests of the Pacific Northwest are usually snow free most of the winter. The trails are muddy sometimes… but not as crowded as in the summer. Occasionally you will have to climb over a tree that has blown down. But the solitude and quiet are worth it.

Quilcene Canyon Wall

View of the Quilcene River Canyon from the Falls View Campground nature loop, Olympic National Forest. It always amazes me where the trees will go to escape the loggers.

Waterfall (un-named creek)

The view of this falls is accessed by a short nature loop in Falls View Campground in Olympic National Forest, just outside of the small town of Quilcene. The un-named creek is a tributary of the Quilcene River.

Quilcene River in Winter

DSC_1603

There is a short loop trail that runs from the Falls View Campground in the Olympic National Forest. It’s a nice walk through the woods, but there isn’t a lot of access to the river bank. This is one of the few. A nice winter walk … especially when the river is running low and not all angry like.

Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Nikon 24-85mm set at 85mm
ISO 100    1/50 sec    f/4.5
