Sky On Fire

This is the afterglow from tonight’s sunset. I was lucky to have been out and about. What you see is what I saw. No digital monkey business has been applied. Sometimes, Mother Nature is just so perfect.

Yunnan to Sichuan

I shot this at Daxue Shan (Great Snow Mountain, 大雪山) on our drive from Shangri-la (香格里拉) aka Zhongdian (中甸) to Chatreng/Xiangcheng (乡城).
Daxue Shan, Yunnan.

Much of the drive was on rugged, unpaved roads along gorgeous mountain ridges and over breathtaking mountain passes. By this point in the trip, we were routinely above 4000 metres. With the neighboring peaks and billowing weather all at eye level, it felt like we were traveling on top of the world. Truly amazing landscape. Probably the most beautiful of our trip. I shall return with more time on my hands.

Images of Shangrila

We were out in the late afternoon, driving around on the high-country grassland when our lead vehicle pulled to a quick stop. The plain before us was bathed in beautiful muted glow and in the distance, a storm front was coming This is down from the hills.We were out in the late afternoon, driving around on the high-country grassland when our lead vehicle pulled to a quick stop.

The square in old town Shangri-la. We were there right between the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day/Golden Week. It was thus pretty quiet.

I finally made my way to the Tacoma Museum of Glass. This is the outside of the signature cone (that houses the hot shop beneath).

And the interior…

I made this image at Ruby Beach on Thursday evening. I had taken the day off to go fishing with friends Geoff and Clint, leaving Seattle at 2 a.m. in order to make it to the boat (in Westport) by 5. We got back to the harbor at 5 p.m., leaving me 3 hours to make the 130-something miles up to Ruby. Needless to say, I was dog tired when I got there. But as soon as I hit the beach, the fatigue disappeared.

Afterglow

We had a scorcher of a day. 95 degrees, a new record according to the National Weather Service. Without a cloud in the sky, I headed to the Edmonds pier to try some water abstracts. It is salmon season and the fish are running, so both pier and water were packed with fishermen. Here is a pair, trolling in a nice old skiff.
