A Late Fall Walk at Seattle’s Seward Park

After a record dry November the rain has finally returned to the Pacific Northwest but mainly as drizzle and not enough to keep us housebound. And so with umbrellas in hand we headed for a walk at Seward Park, a jewel in the crown… Continue Reading “A Late Fall Walk at Seattle’s Seward Park”

A Fall Walk with a RAW Twist

I took a walk at Coulon Park and despite the rain and milky sky, the fall colors couldn’t have been better. So what’s the twist? For the first time I shot the photos using the RAW image format. And no it was not my… Continue Reading “A Fall Walk with a RAW Twist”

A Walk at Seward Park
