West Oly Roundabouts

West Oly Roundabouts

A nigh time light trails image of the 4th and 5th Ave bridages and roundabouts leading into West Olympia

Over the last year or so my day job work requirements have changed quite a bit.  I have found myself lacking the ambition or motivation to get out and do a lot of shooting, especially by myself.  I have made a few trips out with other photographers, and while I do enjoy that, I have always valued solitude and find getting out shooting by myself to be a very relaxing thing.  I captured this image the other evening from the Washington State Capitol grounds of the roundabouts heading to West Oly.  It also has the Deschutes Parkway, 4th Ave. Bridge and the 5th Ave. Bridge.

I really did enjoy getting out and shooting by myself that night.  I visited a handful of my favorite places to shoot from, and will be sharing more images from my little adventure soon.

Dreamy Staircase

Dreamy Staircase

A dreamy landscape at the Staircase Ranger Station in the Olympics National Park

Ok, I get it, you came to this blog post, which is titles Dreamy Staircase, and the first thing you notice is that there isn’t a single staircase in the entire scene.  Granted, the trees have a bit of a dreamy quality, but even the corner of the building that is in the shot is obviously a single story structure and certainly doesn’t have a staircase, let alone a dreamy one.

So why did I title this image, and blog post, Dreamy Staircase?  For some of us in Western Washington is might actually be somewhat obvious, as I said above the trees have a dreamy quality to them and this was captured at the Staircase region of the Olympic National Park.  See, pretty obvious isn’t it.  :-)
