The late afternoon shadows of the trees created an interesting repeating pattern … in the distance a father and son, out for a late winter (early spring) walk. This is at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA.
An late winter hike up the North Fork Skokomish in Olympic National Park … with a chill in the air, but no rain or snow. Really nice to be out in the woods again. Makes me want to get further into the backcountry … soon!
The soft pastels of this sunset reminded me of a Maxfield Parrish image… except for the lack of a young woman in a swing. Not a lot of post production work on this one … it is pretty much the colors that were there.
I recently watched a Ben Long video in Linkedin Learning that going back to old images and looking for the pictures within pictures. (I highly recommend Ben’s video’s in general and “The Practicing Photographer” series of weekly posts in particular.)
I found this detail of cottonwood trees along the Elwha River in Olympic National Park that I took over a year ago. I like it better without the clutter in the foreground and the distant ridge line. The background of a tree covered hillside is nice, the rest was just distraction.
