This gorgeous vista greeted me in a Portland parking lot! A most appreciated gift. Crepuscular rays against Altocumulus … a divine quality that truly lifts the spirits.
Leave it to big puffy cumulus clouds to add cheer to a scene. These were floating over the Rainbow Bridge and the Swinomish Channel in La Conner, WA.
The Willamette River winds through Portland offering a welcomed water element to the city vibe.
Even under cloudy skies, the petals are vibrant.
I never tire of the endless variations of sky and sea.
Victoria, BC is always good for a little taste of London. A bit of formality can help balance the chaos.
Snow geese head to the bay from the potato fields of Skagit Valley.
A light mist in the air following heavy rain creates a watercolor look to the fall trees. A city street becomes a Monet!
Winter scenes like this one always remind me of my childhood pen and ink sketches.
A soaring bird calls to my sense of adventure. This beautiful view of Bellingham Bay is just a short walk from historic downtown Fairhaven.
They come like waves of ribbons across the sky. Rows of wings. Shape-shifting in flight. Forming first circles then lines then arches. A mesmerizing choreography only they can do. Instinctive. Fleeting. Inspiring.
Frigid morning temps are easier to take when you awake to this view.
