While the Girl played along the beach, searching the driftwood for critters (see it, kill it — the terrier way), I wandered about enjoying the afternoon sunlight and making a few images. This bit of driftwood was just right to catch some of the afternoon light, bringing out its texture.

Martha’s Beach, Shelter Bay, Washington
My friend asked me to meet in La Conner for a late lunch. After lunch, she sent me out to Martha’s Beach to run the Girl and enjoy the sight. What a beautiful place it was and I’m so glad I spent a few minutes there.
Just as we stepped onto the trail off Chuckanut Road, I noticed this scene. The interplay of light, shadow, texture, and color caught my eye.
After parking and dismounting near the entrance to Larrabee State Park, I noticed the play of light and shadow on the road. That made me pause, get out my iPhone (which seems to be my camera of choice for grab shots), and make a capture.
What a beautiful place, and wonderful hike, and I spent time with fine company. It was a good day.
On the hike at Larrabee State Park, I came across this Benchmark. I have a long-standing fascination with benchmarks, having used them many times to establish vertical control for my projects. To find one by happenstance on the beach was just fun.
Walker Valley, Washington
One morning in late January, the Girl and I were headed for town to get some work done at Wood’s Coffee. The sun was out that morning, and the light was beautiful. So we stopped at an overlook to make this capture and marvel at the color and vista.
Foggy Big Lake
On this morning, it was cold, foggy, and rainy. The dogs and I hiked up to the Big Lake overlook to this scene. We (or I) paused a few minutes to take it in and make a capture.
My first time out to Woods Coffee, in Mount Washington, I noticed this view through the window. I loved the juxtaposition of the window frame, the incandescent lamps, and the “Open” neon sign.
On our first hike up the hill to the Big Lake overlook, the Girl and I discovered this derelict vehicle on the trail. My guess is that someone had a really bad night. Or, they no longer wanted the vehicle and elected to abandon it on the trail… with the tags intact.
Do I understand this? Nope. I guess I don’t need to.
Deadman’s Pass, Washington
There was much snow at Deadman’s Pass, Washington. The Girl and I stopped here, briefly, to get out of the 4Runner, play in the snow, get some exercise, and take a break from the highway. It was good.
