It’s been chilly in Seattle the last few weeks with temperatures in the mid-twenties. Cold days mean glorious morning light so I’ve been bundling up and heading out.
Once the sun has risen I like to take a morning walk going west along the Lake Washington shore path; catching the light coming through the trees and reflecting off the water.
Walking before dawn is like opening a geode; you never know whether the sky will burst into glowing color or a steel grey sky will simply slowly change to a lighter hue.
Time permitting, my favorite thing to do is head east along the Lake Washington path towards Seward Park and catch the sun rising over Mt. Rainier and a glowing lake.
Here are some morning walk photos.
A former military base the park is now heaven for photographers and outdoor enthusiasts.
Spencer Island is part of the Snohomish River estuary. The walk starts near the sewage plant but it rapidly improves once you get deeper into the park.
Alfred’s parents live in Bar Harbor so we visit there fairly frequently. The photo ops are amazing!
While studying at the UW I often took study breaks and wandered around the campus and the nearby Washington Park Arboretum taking pictures.
I love getting up before dawn and heading to the Leschi dock to catch the sunrise.
Each time I visit Lake Wenatchee the light and clouds are different. This most recent trip was filled with rainbows.
Taking pictures in the fall is heaven; fog, brightly colored fall leaves and reflecting puddles showing brooding clouds.
