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.

Tree Shadows

Single Track Road
Tree Lines

The road is in the hills southwest of Chelan, Washington. Once you’re on it, it’s a little hard to find a place to turn around. So, I just kept going. I ended up in an area that had been involved in a fire in the last year or so… and the shadows crossing the road were dramatic.

Tree Shadow Diptych

I wasn’t until I loaded these onto this page that I noticed how much they align in a diptych sort of way. They were actually taken along the same section of wall … within 10 feet of each other.

A good example of being ready to accept the unexpected in photography and to go with it.
