White River Valley

Posted: April 19, 2013 in HDR, Nikon D90, Washington

The Valley of Awe

The White River originates at the toe of Emmons Glacier in the Mount Rainier Park. You can see the river here coming out of the ice cave at the toe of (the very soiled looking) glacier. The river flows on through the White River Campground, which is known for its many trails and as an access starting point to summit the mountain. This shot was taken from a trail at the Sunrise visitor center, which overlooks the entire region from this side of the mountain.

The Humble House of Canner

I found this place in Port Townsend, Washington, as we walked the shopping district by the sound. There’s all sort of quaint shops and cafes and such. I can’t remember if this place was a store or a business of some sort, but I loved the textures of the brick against the wooden door and teal paint. This is all pretty much par for the course for the people who live here, but contrasted with Dayton, Ohio (which is more like 1970-ish utilitarian) I found it pretty interesting.

Barn in the Valley

Barn in the Valley

I saw this barn from the main road going into Mount Rainier through the town of Ashford, Washington. There’s nothing really special about this shot, but I just liked the distressed look of the barn against the mountain.

Catch of the Day

Returning to Harbor

This shot was a bit unexpected. I had set up along the driftwood piles at La Push beach, firing into the sun / horizon waiting for a good sunset picture, and then this fishing boat comes puttering in from the left. I thought it was a pretty nice little addition to the shot.

The Long Wait

The Long Wait

The first time I visited Lake Crescent in Washington State, the weather was pretty awful. It was overcast, cold, and the water was a flat gray in appearance. I ended up making the decision to return on a nicer day just to get some blue-sky shots, but the moody cloudy day actually worked out better for this shot, that has a much more ominous feel to it.

Grandeur of the Mountain

Magestic Heights

We only had 3 days to explore Mt. Rainier on our last visit to Washington, and unfortunately, 2 of these were overcast, and impossible to see the higher peaks of the mountain. However, on our last day, the skies cleared and we were treated to this full view of the majesty of the mountain.

The Bunkers of Fort Worden

The Last Ascent

The old military compound at Fort Worden has a very eerie feeling to it. These bunkers looked more like gas chambers or something when we first came opon them. In reality though, they are massive gun bunkers where large caliber guns can be hidden until they need to be used; at which time they are cranked up through the celing of the bunker to this spot where they can be aimed at enemy vessels in the sound.
