Week 9 started with the ending of our vacation on the Washington coast and ended with us back at home. The images I created while at the coast leaned more towards what would be considered standard realism and a little less standard HDR.
My favorite image this week from the coast is a view from a piece of driftwood stump I found with a window to the coast beyond. I love the colors and texture of the wood and the glimpse of the coast.
One other image I really enjoy is from the little fishing community of Tahola, WA. Tahola is part of the Quinault Indian Reservation. The very first time I was ever in Tahola was during the two years I worked for the Washington State Dept. of Health, WIC program. WIC is Women Infants and Children and is a wonderful program providing health and nutritional support. When I worked for WIC, I installed computer systems, and provided technical support for those systems, at the clinics throughout the state. I remember visiting Tahola on at least one trip to provide support. There are some great staff in the program helping new families. Now back on topic a little. One of the images I created in Tahola shows some of the small fishing boats at the dock.
Now back home and a pair of evenings with some amazing skies as sunset approached. The first of these I enjoyed creating is of the Olympics with approaching cloud cover.
And the final one is perhaps boarding on the surreal side with storm clouds rolling in and being reflected in the waters of Budd Inlet.
There are many images I enjoyed creating, and as always, it is hard to select just a few to highlight. Enjoy the gallery below for some additional images.
