Foggy autumn

We had very unusual fog today, lasted the whole day. Here’s a local college campus building looking eternal.

Dramatic sunset at the Cove

A few weeks ago the sky was incredible at sunset. The Cove in Normandy Park is at Puget Sound, so it’s salty but quiet water.

Haze reflected in pool

Some friends have a truly spectacular backyard. Their flowers are extraordinary, and that’s just the one border. But even at that special place, several smoky days ago, the hazy air was an unwelcome visitor.

Big Creek

We went camping. Even though the air was hazy with wildfire smoke, it was still beautiful out there.

Red sun

The air was awful in Seattle this week, due to wildfires in British Columbia and in Washington. This was the worst I’ve ever seen or felt it.

Macro of two fern fronds

Pretty contrast in textures of two ferns. The one on the left is a sprengeri and the one on the right is maybe a kind of bird’s nest fern?
