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.
More from a walk in the snow at Fort Worden State Park… Again, some of the usual views take on another tone when covered with snow.
I walk often at Fort Worden St Park in Port Townsend. It’s a large park with lots of interesting photo subjects. But when it snows (not often in PT), the park changes and all the usual views are different. It all means that the usual scenes are new and dramatically different. Such as these two images.
