Tree, Mountain, Tree

Tree, Mountain, Tree

Another view from the top of Blue Mountain, this one looking west towards Hurricane Ridge and Mt Angeles (you can see the roadcut running from the right middle of the image across to the left skyline … Hurricane RIdge is just at that point. This is Olympic National Park. Mount Angeles (Port Angeles is at the bottom of the road) is between the two tallest groups of trees. Tree, Mountain, Tree is a pretty typical (and probably trite) photo motif that my friend and I joke about. But it still works.

Young Buck

Young Buck

This young buck was not shy, because it has lived its life in the National Park, where there isn’t any hunting allowed … so humans aren’t recognized as ‘the enemy’.

The Olympics In Winter

The Olympics in Winter

I tried this in black and white, since the colors weren’t a big part of the image. But I ended up liking it better in color. I think it had to do mostly with the separation in the sky. The blue in the sky created more separation than it did when converted to a gray tone. But maybe I was just too lazy to keep working at it.

The Olympics in Winter (B&W)

Early Fall — Early Winter

Early Fall — Early Winter

This view was from the Hurricane Hill Road (which was closed) in the Hurricane Ridge area of Olympic National Park. The high point in the distance is part of the Mt Angeles complex. In the winter, the snow depth can be quite impressive due to all the moisture from the Pacific that falls as snow up at 5200′.

Snowy Trail

Snowy Trail

Well, it’s not a REALLY Snowy Trail … ’cause you can still see the trail. But for early October, it was a pleasant surprise for find some fresh flakes on everything. And it was about this time that the snow flakes started falling again.

This is the upper section of the Wolf Creek Trail up at Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park.
