Snow Capped Mountains

Snow Capped Mountains

“Snowpalooza 2019”, “Snowcalypse 2019” whatever you called…love it or hate to me it’s God making things more visible and pure! The past few weeks we have had more snow in our little town of Sultan than I have ever seen since we’ve lived here. While it made for difficult travel for some the benefits of…

Digital Painting/PhotoArt

This winter I decided it was time to start painting digitally. I’ve had Corel Painter for some time now and I’ve always wanted to do something creative with my photography. I’m not big into filters, in fact I don’t use filters at all. I do edit in CS6 in order to give my photos what…

Family Visit

Family Visit

Victoria and Jason came up again from California for another visit. Its always nice having these guys come up and hang for awhile. My other niece Cherrelle was also here but I didn’t get to take photos while she was here with us. This time we headed to Leavenworth, Seattle and we all hung out…

Orcas – San Juan Islands

Rick and I and his (childhood friend) Wayne who is here for a visit took an early ferry over to Orcas Island for a hike around Mountain Loop Lake this week. It was gorgeous and to our surprise hardly anyone on the trail in spite of the full parking lot when we arrived. The day…

Free Flying

I love to test my abilities with the old lenses I shoot with. Not only are the some 40-50 years old but they are all manual so a task of photographing hummingbirds yesterday proved not to be as difficult as I had imagined. Nikkor 135 Df    and of course I had to literally give…

Seattle for a Day

Rick woke up on Wednesday morning and came into my office and said, “We’re going to Seattle for the day, we’re going to have lunch and head up top the Space Needle!” This is a big deal for me because for 11 years I’ve been trying to convince him that he should view the city…

Mt. Springs Lodge

Rick and I recently celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary. For this occasion we headed out in the early am to spend a day snowmobiling at the quaint Mountain Springs Lodge in Plain, WA. We really lucked out because the weather prior and forecast weather was gloom and doom. But for our special day it was…

Neah Bay

This past Monday, the hubby and I drove the four hours plus 30 minute ferry ride to fish Neah Bay. We met up with our friends Bill and Judy at the Snow Creek Resort. Now Snow Creek Resort is a fancy word for RV parking with fishing access. But don’t let that stop you from…

Nikkor Exploratius – Yon San Hachi Roku

This week I’m taking on the ‘Yon San Hachi Roku’ or should I say the four-three-eight-six from 1963. This was Nikon’s “forerunner of standard modern zoom lenses, the Zoom-NIKKOR Auto 43-86mm f/3.5.” It is beautifully made, looks absolutely wonderful on the Df and dubbed as Nikon’s worse lens ever made! The ‘Yon San Hachi Roku’ competition…
