Mundane Monday #199: portal

For Mundane Monday #199, my prompt is portal.

When has light and photography and conditions lined up for you to take a photograph that feels like a portal? Did you think of it ahead of time and wait for the perfect conditions or was it a combination of having your camera and a happy accident? Where does your portal lead?

Message your entry and I will list them next week.

Mundane Monday #198: shooting the sun

For Mundane Monday #198, my prompt is shooting the sun. Mostly we can’t get the sun in a photograph, except then sometimes we can. This was taken on Saturday when it was still overcast. As the storm moved on, the light was wonderful, with areas of bright and areas of dark storm cloud.

What photographs have you taken shooting the sun?

Message or link you photograph and I will post them next week. Have an amazing week among the mundane.

For the Ragtag Daily Prompt: note.

And here is the zoom in to the silhouette in the tree: the third eagle. I said that we saw three at once and this is the third.

This is another juvenile.

Right now in the Pacific Northwest, it is a wonderful time to see eagles and hawks. I went to visit my daughter in Bellingham this weekend. With few leaves out, the hawks are very visible, perched high up, waiting for game.

Mundane Monday #196: nurse log

For Mundane Monday #196, my prompt is nurse log.

I hike with my daughter around Fragrance Lake, in Larrabee State Park on Saturday. There are lots of people, many with dogs. Fragrance Lake is 0.75 miles around. It is a little overcast and the lake is quite still, surrounded by trees and hills.

This is a nurse log, or really more of a nurse stump. The young tree is getting nutrition and support from the remains of the older tree.

Link your photographs on the topic nurse log. I will list them next week.

Here at last are my two star close ups of the eagles. I am standing on the path right below the tree. The eagles are putting up with me with amazing patience. They are so high up that other people are walking right by and not noticing. Take out the earbuds! Look up!

I am submitting both to the Ragtag Daily Prompt: flight.

And thank you, eagles!
