After the Rain

After last week’s heat wave, Juneuary returned to the Pacific Northwest bringing cold, wet, windy, winterlike weather. But after a few days of torrential rainfall, the sun reappeared yesterday along with some magnificent clouds. The air has been washed fresh and clean, new plants… Continue Reading “After the Rain”

Downtown Seattle in Black and White

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge I thought I’d take you on a tour of downtown Seattle with a little history on the way. Use the slider to view the image in both color, and black and white. My first job downtown was next door… Continue Reading “Downtown Seattle in Black and White”

Where’s the Mountain? Behind Seattle’s Gray

The bluest skies you’ve ever seen are in Seattle, sang Perry Como. Perhaps they are – just not often enough! 😉 It turns out that Seattle is one of the cloudiest cities in the country, with over 300 cloudy days a year on average.… Continue Reading “Where’s the Mountain? Behind Seattle’s Gray”

The Promised Snow Has Finally Arrived

It started with a fury overnight – tiny flakes of ice blown sideways. It’s falling still – larger and softer – more gently but determined – blanketing everything in white. The hummingbirds waited patiently while I brought them fresh nectar; I’d forgotten to bring… Continue Reading “The Promised Snow Has Finally Arrived”

Blue Skies and Eagles before the Snow

Did you know that Seattle is the cloudiest city in the country? Not the rainiest city no, but often ranked #1 for days with heavy cloud cover. Suffice it to say, I’ve seen a lot of cloudy days in my life. And many of… Continue Reading “Only the Best Clouds in Seattle”

Night Sky

I’ve always been intrigued by the night sky and have fond memories of sleeping outside under heaven’s canopy watching for falling stars. In college I took an Astronomy course and the best part was our visit to the rooftop to look at the Universe… Continue Reading “Night Sky”

The Bluest Skies You’ve Ever Seen

Are in Seattle – sang Perry Como. He was talking about this week. The first five days of December – rain-free, for the record books. Spent a day at Lincoln Park – where sea and sky merged blue, save for the peaks – the… Continue Reading “The Bluest Skies You’ve Ever Seen”
