Such great colors today! The first of several high 70′s days – in a row!
Can you see the mountain?
It seems to have the power to move, showing up in surprising places as one drives from town to town.
The library where I work part time is closing for a few weeks to have some renovations done.
Today a few of us went in to help box up the remaining books before they get started. It was a really nice morning to be outside, and since I got to town a little early, I headed over to Lake Wilderness to see if the sun was coming up yet.
It has been raining like crazy here today, which should be no surprise, it is Western Washington after all, but given the weather we’ve been getting lately, it is an abrupt change!
I headed down to Lake Wilderness after work to see what I find. I found a lot of water, much of it coming from the sky! Looking at my photos now on my computer screen, I realize I should have upped my f-stop for a wider range, since I of course had no way of knowing where the next drop would land. Ah well, now I know for next time (tomorrow??)!

I had some extra time before work so I swung by Lake Wilderness to take in some nature.
This fellow, and about 25 of his closest friends came swimming, running, and flying as soon as they saw me walking across the once crowded grass of the swimming area. Early October hasn’t been too cold yet, but the swimming area was completely deserted at noon on a week day. (When Isaac and I were there back in July, I took this photo)
Handsome fellow, don’t you agree?
Here is that tilt shift I promised you yesterday!
What do you think?
