Saturday Snapshot: Blue Skies

Here’s a photo I took of some wispy clouds in the sky on a beautiful afternoon in Tacoma.

Saturday Snapshot: Puget Sound Sunset

Taken yesterday, when the weather was sunny, clear, and gorgeous.  The weather today was pretty wonderful, too.  These are the days when I take my camera and head out for exploratory walkabouts.

Saturday Snapshot: Tacoma Narrows Bridge

Out of all of the dorms/apartments I’ve lived in, this one has the best view.  Here’s a zoomed-in shot of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, taken from my new balcony.

Saturday Snapshot: Heron

Here is the heron from my trip to Titlow Lagoon.  It was very people-shy, flying to a different part of the pond whenever a jogger or a bicyclist (like me) passed nearby on the trail.

Saturday Snapshot: Ski Lift

Second snowmobile trip to Mt. Spokane.  It was cloudy, but the ski lift rose out of the clouds.  So did we, climbing up to take a look at the view.

Saturday Snapshot: Sun and Tree

Another photo from the snowmobile trip to Mt. Spokane, taken while the boys were climbing through the fog to the top of the ski lift.  There was just enough room for the sun to peek out and join the flock of trees standing on the side of the mountain.

Saturday Snapshot: The White Tree

The White Tree By CRash

First snowmobile trip of the year!  That means lots of snowy pictures. :)  This spot on the mountain was treated to the full force of the wind, so my fingers went numb.  However, all that wind meant that trees like this one got a heavy dose of flocking.

I particularly like this photo because the white tree has a face: two dark vertical spots midway up the tree form the eyes and the larger horizontal spot below them serves as a scowling mouth.  The errant branch sticking out on the left side might be interpreted as a shaking fist.  Overall, I think its expression is akin to: “Get off my lawn, you whippersnappers!”
