Sunrise, sunset…

I took the first photo on my way to work, and snapped the second one through my car window as I drove home at the end of the day. I wasn’t sure how the second photo would turn out because I basically just pointed my camera towards the sunset – my eyes on the road – and clicked as I drove past the flooded field… 🙂

Sunset on the Way Home from Work

I pointed my camera towards the sunset as I drove – my eyes on the road – and snapped. I had no idea how this one would turn out… photo by Karen Molenaar Terrell 

Rainbow, Barn, and Bay

It was drizzling when I left the house, but I was determined to take a walk along Padilla Bay today – come hell or high water. And I found magic, my friends. As soon as I pulled into the muddy parking lot the rain stopped and a rainbow appeared over the bay…

On my way back from my walk I spied a bald eagle sitting in a tree near the road. I pulled over and snapped a photo and then he took off – and I caught a quick shot of him glaring at me indignantly as he flew to a tree on the other side of the road. (I apologized to him for intruding on his privacy.)

Autumn Ivy

Drove up to Bellingham to spend some time together with my family. As we were driving into town I spotted this wall laced with red ivy. After we’d parked and as the family waited for a table at a restaurant I scurried up to see if I could find the wall again and snap some quick pictures. Et voila! 🙂

Drive After Work

Went for a drive after work and found all kinds of magic…
