“After the Snowfall”
Frozen In Time – Weekly Photo Project – Week 03 – Wet/Dry
Its such a stunning sight to see a fountain frozen in midstream. Even more when it is as impressive of a fountain as the one at the Tulalip Casino. I figured this covers the week’s theme at just about every angle. Wet and dry, liquid and solid, flowing and stationary. Oh, and crystal clear and cloudy. Oh, and not to mention, Really Purdy!!! Yup! Definitely worth backtracking to get some shots of!
I pulled down to the side road by the river because I saw the snow buildup on the banks (lingering snow is unusual around here, so I didn’t want to miss it) The sun was setting and there were sheets of ice floating down the river crunching into each other. It was amazing to sit there (Okay, stand. Too cold and wet to sit) and listen to that ice and the singing of the eagles in the trees. The scene gave the “Golden Hour” a whole new level for me that day.
Had to think about this. I spent my New Year’s on a two hikes in low 30 degree weather. We each have to define what a holiday is. I think walking a beautiful trail and seeing a driftwood elephant in the process (who I have since named Fee Fee, and yes there is more to that one) made it a wonderful holiday. I also saw hawks and herons and eagles and little brown birds playing peekaboo from the bushes. So, this is my first offering for the year.
I must first apologize for the horrible quality of most of the pictures in this post. I had the camera settings way off and didn't realize it until it was too late. So the result was that most of the shots ended up in the trash. And I suppose many of these should as well, but its just too cool of an event not to make a note of it.
This is a spiderweb hanging one of the vendors had. He also makes those little stick in the ground birds and critters for your yards. I told the lady running the booth that he really, really needs to do a spider like that. I would buy one of those!
