Icy Fir Branch

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.

Junco

During one of my walks around Fort Worden in Port Townsend, I noticed a number of Junco’s flitting through the branches of a tree along the trail. This little guy was nice enough to sit still long enough that I was able to get a couple shots off… I think we had the same thoughts: is it spring yet?

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.

Madison Falls

DSC_1688

Madison Falls is along the Elwha River just at the boundary of the Olympic National Park. The walk is about a city block and is accessible (though not so much in the snow).

We had a few days of below freezing temperatures, but the ice hadn’t built up quite as much as I was expecting. Still nice, though.

North Olympics

DSC_1655

This is another shot I took while waiting for the crescent moon to appear (see that photo here). This is the north end of the Olympic skyline you see from Seattle. Mt Constance on the left running through Buckhorn on the right. The colors really are pretty accurate … it was really spectacular.

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.

Lens: Nikon 24-85mm set at 38mm
ISO 1250    1/100 sec    f/5
