Foggy Morning Pajamas

A foggy morning provided a few minutes of good photography as my daughter and friends (here, her friend Ainsley) looked out our hotel room window at Great Wolf Lodge. Taking most pictures of these girls needs to be surreptitious these days, because they want to mug for the camera instead of pose. (Click the photo to view it larger.)

Up Early for Snow in Seattle

After it snowed a few inches overnight, we were up early (thanks to the 8-year-old, very early) to go experience it. The people in this house were awake, too.

The cold weather today made me think of this photo from December when it snowed here in Seattle. It’s sunny and a brisk 31 degrees F outside now, but friends in Portland are digging out of a foot of snow from the last couple of days!

Stay warm.

Morning Orange

I woke up to this gorgeous light this morning. It was fleeting—the sun rose into the clouds within a couple of minutes. But until then, the trees (and my kitchen) were bathed in golden glowy sunlight.

Tulip Dawn

When we went out for a sunrise photo shoot at the tulip fields near Mount Vernon, Washington, I had a few ideas in my head for what types of photos to create. I’ve been to the Tulip Festival before and shot the types of photos you see of the rows and rows of spectacular color. But for the sunrise, I thought I’d try for something different to capitalize on what I hoped would be a brilliant opportunity for backlighting.

In reality, the sun caught me a little by surprise. With streaks of clouds above, I thought the sunrise might be muted, but no: when the sun broke free of the mountains, it was a wash of color. I was hoping for a different look, and am pleased to have gotten one.
