The second tulip photo I’ve had as my Saturday Snapshot – This was the first.  The first one was taken in the second week of May; this was taken in my parents’ front yard when I was at home visiting for Easter.

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.

Friday Evening at Titlow Park

CRashTacomaNarrowsBridge

It was a gorgeous clear day, so I biked down to Titlow Park to watch the sun set over Puget Sound.  I also took my iPad along, and did a quick speedpaint of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge at sunset.  It took somewhere around 30-45 minutes, and was tricky since the light kept changing as the sun moved closer to the horizon.

Once again, the uphill bike ride home was killer.  The park is great incentive, though – near enough and pretty enough to make it worth the exercise on the return trip.  Might this become a self-imposed workout routine?  Only if there are more clear, sunny days like this one!

 

Saturday Snapshot: Heron

Heron By CRash

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: 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: Goodbye, ASU!

Adios to ASU and Tempe, Arizona. It’s been a good four years!

as “Valley of the Sun”, a bit after the actual sunrise.)
