misty winter harbour

A golden morning, with a thin layer of mist rising off the ocean.

three firs

These three fir trees grow at the side of the path to the beach, and I’ve passed them many times without taking particular notice. But on this day the soft winter sun seemed to shine on them just right, highlighting the detail in the trunks while drawing out the pastel tones of the woodland foliage.

winter ambience

Most people would associate the term “ambience” with an indoor space or man-made environment, but I’d argue that nature can have some pretty spectacular ambience, too – such as this morning’s sunrise that lit the harbour with golden light. It almost looks warm, doesn’t it? But the temperature was just below freezing.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience

ice variations (2 images)

These are the last of my ice series photos. I went minimalist for the first image, and embraced chaos for the second.

Our current cold snap (cold, that is, for the Pacific Northwest) is supposed to last through the  week, and then it’s back to the usual mild temperatures and rain. I have to say I’ll miss our wintry weather.
