Fern Cove Preserve on Vashon Island in Puget Sound. For Jez’s Water Water Everywhere.
Yesterday the sun was bright. Welcome after a cold rainy period.
This time of year the wood look soft with the moss and ferns providing a touch of bright green on a drippy gray day. Moss’s texture catches and reflects light, in almost the same way that glitter does. It appears brighter than anything should almost sunlit at times, even though the sun was AWOL.
I’m a fan of the beach at sunset…even on a chilly winter evening.
Every year the winter rains and high tides reform the tide flats near Shinglemill creek. Today was a low enough tide to walk the beach, without rain, but the creek is still full and running fast and deep. My little dogs were intimidated and couldn’t get across, but they kept trying.
I don’t shoot in black and white, but I took these photos on a walk yesterday planning to process them in Black and White for Hey Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge #47: photograph nature in Black and White and experiment with high and low key effects.
For Wordless Wednesday
Sometimes the sunset makes you feel like you are on a different planet. This evening was one such.

The creek crosses a delta that exists only when the tide is out. Every day the path changes a bit.
