Finally, Some Sun!

It was a beautiful weekend, so we spent most of it outside


Here in the Northwest, we spend a good six months of the year pretty much indoors; around November or so every year, the cold and the rain set in for real, and by mid-February, you start to wonder if they’ll ever leave.

But eventually, we fly close enough to the sun to coax some green back out of the trees, some warmth and good light from that sun, and the clouds go away just long enough for a couple of outings on your days off. These are from Meadowdale Beach Park (a new favorite) and Brackett’s Landing, both in nearby Edmonds.

I'm taking more and more of these lately &mdash; I've been calling them "vertical-panos." You can probably figure out how it's done: I just open the iPhone's Camera app, switch it to <small>PANO</small>, flip the phone on its side, and go, starting at the foot of the subject and rolling upward toward the sky. Turns up some mind-bendingly weird results sometimes, too.
