On the Way to Work

On the way to work yesterday…

sunrise on the way to work 3 this one

From this point, I drove my car to a place where I knew there’d be a flooded field – I thought I might be able to catch the sunrise’s reflection in the water – but I had my big ol’ zoom lens on my camera and, before I could put on a wide angle lens, the sunrise was gone. I was really happy I was able to get this shot, though, before the sunrise disappeared.

Tulip Town, Skagit County, WA

Visited Tulip Town (near LaConner, Washington) last week and this is what I came back with…

Sunset over Flooded Fields

Amazing sunset over flooded fields in Skagit County, Washington tonight…

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.)
