Three Climates – The Forest

Over the past few weeks I’ve managed to get out and about quite a bit. On these outings of work and play, I’ve managed to spend time hiking in the mountains, swimming on the coast, and walking through the flats of eastern Washington. So, starting with the forrest since that’s the closest to home. Here are the photos from said adventures!

This is the still mostly frozen Heather Lake. This is a panorama comprised of 43 separate photos!

Quite a few days in the mountains have been extremely foggy with the ground warming and thawing.

And finally, out in the forest, if you keep your eyes open, maybe you can find the tree covered in signs of love

Fern Under Fall

As I’m sure most folks are familiar with, when roads are made in the mountains they often have manmade cliffs over them. These little cliffs almost always have delightful little falls or showers where streams that once flowed now fall. This fern was in on of these showers.

Fren-Close

My umbrella was being blasted with water from the showers the whole time I was setting up and shooting. I have to thank my roommate for holding it and keeping me dry.
