Sunday Stills: What might that Pacific Northwest #Aroma be?

Today's theme is aroma, and pictures that lead you to remember the #aroma of something.   So, I will start with an aroma that is one of my very favorites: the salt tang of the sea.  Since salt water is never more than a few miles away from our home in Everett, Washington, we are …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #199: Mechanical, Industrial

Working in a factory gives me access to industrial and mechanical items all day long, and ever since I started there in July of 2021, I have marveled at the beauty of the items manufactured, and even the scrap material.  Every so often, I need to stop by the tool room to pick up some …

Sunday Stills Monthly Color Challenge: #Teal or #Aqua

As usual, my favorite example of a natural Teal coloring is Diablo Lake in the North Cascades.  There is a beautiful overlook mini-park just east of the town of Newhalem, and Hubby and I go there a couple of times every year.  The unusual color of the water is caused by glacial runoff, and the …
