It’s been pouring pretty much all weekend here in the northwest.
There’s a spot behind our apartment where the water gathers and creates the perfect growing conditions for these little mushrooms.
All this rain we’ve been having lately has made everything around here a brand new shade of bright green.
I had to get my wide angle out this afternoon.
And by the time I got home the clouds had mostly cleared, letting the moon shine brightly through.
I couldn’t decide if I liked it better in color or black and white. What do you think?
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??)!
The sky was dreary all day today, but we can’t let that stop us, can we? :)
I went traipsing through a bit of forest this afternoon and found the following pretties. (As usual these look better when you click on each image)
And this one was from yesterday, but I like it too much not to share it with you:
One month down, just 11 more to go!
I’m so excited!
For those of you who follow this little blog, I have been taking a lot of photos recently of a certain budding plant, that, until today, I didn’t know the name of.
Well kids, today I found out it’s an “Indian Plum.” Thank you Redmond Watershed Interpretative Displays! I’m looking forward to seeing them with fruit (and tasting it?)
Here are some Indian Plum photos, and a few others (including some more Chewie…):
Today’s challenge from Capture your 365 is “A mini figure.”
So, while Isaac ran around the Redmond Watershed Preserve today, Chewbacca and I took a walk.
While he wasn’t much of a conversationalist, it was still a fun walk in the rain! :D
