Fort Casey Sunset Sunrise

Finally got a decent sunset during our stay at Fort Casey on Whidbey Island. Most nights were cloudy and no sun per se, but last night the sun was out and some clouds. Then, this morning, I went back to the same location from which I took last night’s photos and took photos so the sunlight was illuminating the front of the battery. So, this image is a composition of two sets of panoramics. Love, love, love having artistic license.

Here is the sunset image by itself:

And here is the sunrise from the same location the next morning:

Eagle at Boulevard Park

Wait, did this really just happen? On a regular, but unpredictable basis, we see an eagle flying over Boulevard Park. Not sure where the nest is for these visitors (whether it is the same one or a pair, who knows. Always only one at a time though). Well, this special day was lunch time. Fortunately the raptor was busy enough with this meal that we could approach at a respectable distance. Wow! What a treat. We learned later that the menu was a Barrows Goldeneye, just for a trivial piece of info.
