Ewing Sunrise

During the calm before the storm, I rose early and got in some rowing as the sky brightened in the east.

It was an absolutely still day for an entire Saturday with gulls along the shore preening like mad.

Wait, isn't that a sign that something is about to change?*

*We were in the middle of Sunday morning's blow, clocking a few gusts over 65 and taking green water over the bow a few times on the way home.

Theater Man

Heading out for an education in Drama (once he's graduated from high school) this young man has plans for the stage.

Stairway to Heaven

Little stone/concrete steps that you never see if you only go to the ski area in the winter.

Austin Moon

Knowing there was a full moon due (and not wanting to endanger the family with the change) I went up to Heather Meadows to see what I might see. Ok, there's no change. I already had the beard. And, my daughter went with me.

Anyway, moonlight makes for some interesting possibilities and I wanted to play with it a little. So, I set up my camera with an interval timer and shot a couple hundred frames over 4 hours. Just to watch the stars move over the mountains. I haven't put it together into a video yet, but here's one frame out of the bunch...

Early Heather

My youngest & I spent the night in the back of the truck looking up at the stars & moon. There's just something about being on the mountain where all you can hear is your own breathing and a little breeze in the trees.

Of course, she's capable of sleeping in past 6:45 and I'm not. This photo is the proof...
