The light in the forest... sometimes so magical, right? This shot reminded me of my blog buddy Diane Varner (http://dailywalks.com/). I'm sure she would make it even more dramatic, with her post processing skills. It's been way to long since I visited her site. She's just amazing.
I'd love a stroll in this forest right now. Imagine the cool feel, the delicious smell... Come with me?

There have been many times where I awaited a sunset over the ocean only to have it "fizzle." That means the clouds obscurred the sunset. I thought that's what would happen this particular evening, but good old Mr Sun had a surprise in store for me.
I wasn't planning on posting "another" Rainier picture, but I got so much good feedback on this shot from friends and colleagues I decided to. This was yesterday morning, and all day she was extremely photogenic.
Today starts our Christmas visitors, and so of course a big Winter storm blew in. No more views of the mountain for now!
Yesterday morning was busy at Mt. Rainier. It's so big and massive that it makes its own weather. See that "lenticular cloud" it made? And then a mean little cumulus clould floating by. And it is a little tricky to see at this resolution, but you see that "blob" just under and below the left edge of the dark cloud? That's an airliner, taking off from SEATAC.
What a view the people on the left side of the plane had!
