Late afternoon - Goat Lake

Fishing for dinner on Goat Lake. The sun picks up the sparkle of the water and the bugs in the air. (We ended up eating Mountain House from REI.)

Twisted Heart

Early spring debris along the Lost River in the Methow Valley.

In the Quinault River water shed

Sometimes the smaller streams are more spectacular than the raging rivers. The spirit is in the details. I particularly liked the quiet immovable quality of the rock amidst the constant changing flow of the water.

Glacier Peak Heart

The snow had melted out and left this heart up near the top of Glacier Peak. I took the picture from Mt. Forgotten.

Eagle Hoping for a Meal!

We were watching the sunset at Semiahmoo Park when a group of gulls suddenly began flying away . We looked up to see the hungry eagle.

Eagle Hoping for a Meal!

We watched the eagle for several minutes while he unsuccessfully dived at the gulls for a meal!
