Today wasn’t easy. Maybe its the weather, I feel like I’m lost in Seattle. However the sun has set so I cannot complain. Rain through the day makes for long ones & hyper dogs.
Driving for sunset accepting I may not see much of one, this reflection caught me. Flooding the hole in the middle of the road, deceiving those that pass through, painting that which surrounds it, catching true colors.
Oddly enough I stopped, got out of my truck and stood there, ‘reflecting’ on recent days, prior to taking this photo. The beauty captured reflected so much.
I do a lot of driving and right now the weather is perfect for having the windows rolled down and the sun roof open. It’s one of my favorite things to have everything open as I drive down the road. Usually the photos are shot through the windows or through the front window. But every now and the you look up and a shot presents itself. Now I have been told not to shoot while driving, by a few people. But sometimes the shots are just too good and I try to be as safe as possible when I shoot. I will have you know that I learned this technique from the best 😉
One of those days that warrants a 4 hour country cruise with the windows down and no destination.
I’ve shot this particular place before but today the sun highlighted the fence just right, giving beautiful color to all that was enclosed.
I enjoy moments like these.
This morning was hard. I didn’t want to wake up. I had to convince myself to listen to my alarm. I had to tell myself that yes, I do need to show up to work. I have to leave her and this warm bed for lumber and hard work. I wasn’t happy, but I did it. And I was greeted by a pretty sunrise and fog over the cornfields. It was a small little gift to try and make the day a little bit better.
Watching the sun melt on a back country road with the sweet smell of corn and freshly turned soil.
Most don’t understand the satisfaction or the comfort I get when doing this. Nothing but freedom. You can keep your thoughts or go empty minded. There is too much to focus on when you have time and open roads.
I challenge you to try this one evening. Find some country roads, roll the windows down, get your favorite jams going and just drive.
I love the way the sun shines through the flowers. The way it highlights the petals.
This photo is a reminder that things are beautiful. No matter what were going through, where we’ve been or where we are headed, life is beautiful.
Sunrise on Washington Park Beach was too epic not to share another photo.
I really love this lighthouse. The way the sun lights it up after a night under the stars. This lighthouse sees the Earth rotate. The sun rise. The sun set. The moon rise. The Earth shift.
This weekend brought light to some important events and decisions that needed to be made.
Today was a rainy and cloudy day. I’ve always liked rain and the clouds that come with it. As I walked out after the rain, I looked up and saw the clouds. The way the gray and white blended with the blue and the light shined through them, made for a pretty scene. I snapped this shot as the clouds moved on, leaving light and rain behind.
Beauty can show up in really weird places. I’ve learned that through all the shooting I’ve done. Like this beautiful sunset in a vinyl village. I’ve never found anything interesting to shoot in this neighborhood, until tonight. I looked out the window and saw this shot. It turned out pretty and the sky looked amazing.
This week has been a week of supposed storms, that haven’t turned up. I always used to hate storms, but now I kind of like them. Today I wished it would have stormed. I heard thunder, but it never rained. But it was okay, me and Hannah treated it like a rainy day anyway. We both had the day off and we relaxed watching TV, making pancakes, cleaning, reading and watching movies. It was a good day and good time spent together.
