Amazing Water

Click the image to enlarge for clearer detail.

Water. It is basic to life as we know it. We drink it, bathe in it, cook with it. But left to its own devices, aided by cold temperatures, variable humidity and wind, water crystallizes into amazing shapes. Seen here up close is snow after it sat for a while in such conditions.

Snow falls in many places. To most of us, snow is just part of the background. Something pretty on the trees; something to plow from the roadway, shovel out of the driveway, or ball up and throw at someone. But in nature, the closer we look, the more interesting things get.

Good Morning, Redmond

Click the image for a larger view.
A blanket of fresh snow covers Redmond, Washington in this pre-dawn shot. The shadows on the snow are cast by moonlight. The brightening of the sky is from the pre-dawn glow of the rising sun. Other glows are from artificial light sources. The slight star trail effect is due to the 60 second exposure time.

New Years Eve, 2006, Seward Park, Seattle, Washington

Mt. Ranier at sunset, blanketed in a huge lenticular cloud, seen across Lake Washington.

In the twilight, a couple share this park bench overlooking the lake. In the distance is part of Mercer Island.

Beyond the darkened pier, a large boat, festively decked out for the season, its lights carrying across the water.

Lights glinting off the glassy surface.

Happy New Year 2007!
