A walk in the park

A Walk in the Park

The late afternoon shadows of the trees created an interesting repeating pattern … in the distance a father and son, out for a late winter (early spring) walk. This is at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA.

North Fork Skokomish

North Fork Skokomish

An late winter hike up the North Fork Skokomish in Olympic National Park … with a chill in the air, but no rain or snow. Really nice to be out in the woods again. Makes me want to get further into the backcountry … soon!

  • Lens: Nikkor 24-85mm set at 24mm
  • ISO 400 1/200 sec f/7.1

Cottonwood Detail

Cottonwood Detail

I recently watched a Ben Long video in Linkedin Learning that going back to old images and looking for the pictures within pictures. (I highly recommend Ben’s video’s in general and “The Practicing Photographer” series of weekly posts in particular.)

I found this detail of cottonwood trees along the Elwha River in Olympic National Park that I took over a year ago. I like it better without the clutter in the foreground and the distant ridge line. The background of a tree covered hillside is nice, the rest was just distraction.
