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.
I was able to get over to Fort Worden soon after the snowstorm at the end of December. The broken clouds and the views to the southeast and south were spectacular. A real treat after being stuck indoors for a couple days.
The sun on the Douglas Fir had melted some of the snow and as the temperature dropped, it froze into these lovely icicles. I was getting a little chilly by this time, or I might I spent more time with these.
