Sara's Fave Photos Blog

Check out my new book, Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory. And welcome to Sara's Fave Photos Blog at Love That Image. My goal is to take a photo that is as compelling and beautiful as in real life, with no or minimal Photoshop work. You may copy a photo but link to lovethatimage.com. Thank you for your thoughtful comments, and thanks for visiting.

Tractor in foggy field

Going to Auburn, WA the other day, saw this bucolic farm scene of a man riding his red tractor as the mist collected, and his dog keeping him company.

Lenticular cloud at Mt. Rainier

Driving to Auburn, WA to cut a live Christmas tree, the Mountain (what locals call Mt. Rainier) was out, decorated by some pretty wonderful cloud forms.

Swirly lenticular cloud near the peak of Mt. Rainier means rain is on the way

Pink dogwood tree

Back to the archives, from April. My birthday, in fact. I love the big pink dogwood tree in my backyard, next to the magnolia tree not quite blooming yet.

Pink dogwood blooms in April in Seattle. Rain is coming!
