Shorter Days and Early Sunsets

We gained an hour last night – which really means we lost it – and the shorter days mean early sunsets.  So I took advantage of the break in the rain and walked to the park this afternoon before five. The clouds hung low…

A Sunset Over Dinner

If you follow my blog you probably know by now how much I love sunsets.  So here’s one from last night taken after our anniversary dinner at Redondo Beach on Puget Sound.  It followed a few rainy days and so was a welcome sight…

Walking into Fall at Coulon Park

September has been slow to relinquish summer and that’s fine with me.  I’m enjoying the lingering sun and slow transformation of the leaves even as the days grow shorter. A slow walk into Fall at Coulon Park. ~ Susanne

Sunset at Coulon

We decided to go for a walk at Coulon Park last night just as the sun was beginning to set.   The crowds from Labor Day weekend were mostly gone – the picnickers and swimmers soaking up the last of summer –  leaving the…

Tree Art and Sunset at Seward Park

We took a walk last night at Seward Park through woods of Douglas-Fir, lit up by Maple. Near the lakeshore this golden Madrona was beautiful alone, shortly before sunset over the lake. ~ Susanne

Mostly Cloudy Skies

Last night’s skies were mostly blue with clouds strewn about and lit from behind  as the sun began to set. The clouds gathered and thickened after sunset, saturated with lovely shades of blue, purple and lavender. This morning’s skies look like dishwater as milky…

Springtime in Seattle

After bemoaning the weather for the past week, we finally got a reprieve from the rain.  The sky was mostly clear yesterday when I met a friend for lunch at Alki Beach.  Some young ones played in the waves.  Not us. Along with our…

Big Sky After Sunset
