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

A Summer Sunset

Though summer doesn’t arrive till Thursday the weather couldn’t wait and we reached 85 degrees today.  Along with high temperatures expected all week,  the summer solstice will also bring the longest day of the year.  In Seattle that means a whopping 16 hours of…

The Colors and Solitude of Long Beach

Long Beach bills itself as the longest beach in the world.  Maybe that’s a stretch – no pun intended. Still at 28 miles, it ranks #3 on the list of longest US beaches and #8 in the world. And if you add in some…

Wowed by Clouds

I went looking for the sunset last night but was wowed by the clouds instead. These were thick and buoyant like mysterious creatures under the sea. They lit up with a filter applied. This  giant was delicate with hints of pink. But became wild…

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

March Skies in Color

It’s the last week of winter and the sky put on quite a show for us here in the Pacific Northwest. Earlier this week I caught this sunrise. Last night I enjoyed a different color palette with this sunset. Both were wonderful. ~ Susanne

Winter Skies

After a soggy January, the rain finally stopped today and I was happy to go for a walk outside with partially blue skies peeking through the clouds. While it still remained dry, I ventured out again at sunset to see my favorite winter tree….

Weekly Photo Challenge 2017

It wasn’t easy to choose but for the final Weekly Photo Challenge of the year I give you a few of my favorites from 2017. I’ll start with sunrise over the Siuslaw River in Florence on the Oregon Coast. And follow with my two…

Stages of a Sunset

The rain finally came to an end so I thought I’d try to catch tonight’s sunset in the park at the end of the street.  When I arrived I found blue patches of sky hidden under billowy clouds. It wasn’t long before pale peach…
