Alpine Meadows

Bull Elephants Head

These photos are from the Upper Duckabush area of the Olympic National Park. I really liked the Elephants Head … this was the only time I had seen it. Getting low to capture it allowed me to also get the ridgeline in the image, which really gives it a lot of context that would be missing otherwise.

The image below is a more typical mossy streamlet running through the alpine area. I enjoy the rich greens of the various varieties of mosses … a visual feast.

The old saying that moss grows on the north side of trees doesn’t work so well in the rain forest (or the Olympic National Park in general). Nice to have the sun providing some backlighting for this.

This is the sheep barn at Bloedel Reserve.

It doesn’t have sheep anymore. Just a great collection of moss and lichen.

One of the batteries at Fort Worden State Park, Port Townsend, WA.

I enjoy the patterns of moss, oxidation and weathering paint that these World War I relicts provide. A photographer’s feast.
