First Sign of Fall

First Sign of Fall

I really was struck by the pattern of the shadows and the interplay of light between the shadows and the leaves. Tomorrow is the Equinox, so I guess technically these are not “autumn” leaves …

(I took this a couple weeks back and it was the first time I noticed leaves that had fallen, but there are lots more now.)

Sand and Seaweed

Sand and Seaweed

Walking along the beach at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA, I noticed these two pieces of seaweed sticking out of the sand. The curved shapes and shadows attracted my eye.

Backlit Marina

Backlit Marina 1

After I took the previous post’s shots of the rainbows, I turned and walked over to the marina. I was looking directly into the sun and took these images of the boats in the marina. I used slightly different post-processing settings and the top image is more contrasty. I like it better than the one below… but when I increased the contrast on that one, it just didn’t work as well.

Sun On Sidewalk

Sun on Sidewalk

I have a routine of walking the length of downtown Port Townsend … a round trip is about 1/2 mile (so I usually do several laps). Just after a shower, there was a clearing and the sun off of the wet sidewalk was pretty dramatic.

Clearing Storm over Lone Pine Peak

This was taken from the Mt Whitney Portal Road near the town of Lone Pine, CA. The boulders in the foreground are part of the Alabama Hills, a frequent location for shooting western movies and tv shows in the ’50’s.
