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.
The native Madrone are great photo subjects. However, they aren’t quite as nice as features of your yard. They drop leaves, bark and other items pretty much year-round. They are pleasant enough, if you don’t mind raking up the mess.
There isn’t a lot of snow that is still on the madrone, but what there is makes the photo a lot more interesting with the contrasting blobs of snow among the limbs. This was taken in Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA.
It was a pleasant winter day down at Fort Worden State Park and the Point Wilson Lighthouse. The view when the clouds are high or non-existent includes a dramatic view across to Mt Baker in the North Cascades. In this case, it was above the smog layer … or most of it.
Walking the roads in Fort Worden, you can often find yourself sharing the roads with deer. In the image below, the young deer (a yearling) is experiencing its first snow. It’s mother is off the road to the right … the teen-fawn seemed a little uncertain about this cold white stuff. And I imaged it was wondering if mom was going to order out dinner.
