Lummi Nation Sunrise

The seed was unexpectedly planted yesterday when I made a chance encounter with photographer Lou Nicksic at Boulevard Park. I was returning from capturing a colorful sunrise and he was just setting up for some long exposures. As we talked, he mentioned taking sunrise photos over on the shores of the Lummi Nation. So, when I happened to wake up at 5:00am this morning, I immediately grabbed my gear and set out for Lummi Nation. Boy, was it worth it!

Bald Eagles at Mosquito Lake Road

For many months now I’ve been thinking about photographing bald eagles here in Whatcom County. Friends have talked about and shared their photos on Facebook and I still had not made the time to go out and see what all the fuss was about. Well, that all changed today as Lori and I ventured to where Mosquito Lake Road bridge crosses over the Nooksack River, just off the Mount Baker Highway.

Fallen At Nugent’s Corner

Made my way to the Nooksack River at Nugent’s Corner this morning. The Nooksack was fast, the sky gray, so photographically it didn’t catch my attention. Then I started walking the shoreline and it was amazing. The leaves were varied, fallen and in decay, but they are beautiful. As a light rain fell from the sky, small drops on the pools of water added even more interest.

Seasons Are Changing At Boulevard Park

Took some time this morning to walk through the north end of Boulevard Park. Leaves are starting to change colors on a few of the trees, so this walk was about looking at some old haunts in a new way. A leaf here, a leaf there and a few other interesting pieces.
