This week, I fell a bit behind, so I didn’t get any new photos posted to Instagram (shock!). I feel bad, but the craziness of life just got away from me this time around. You might have noticed that I have been focusing my Instagram account on wildlife. For now, I think I’ll continue to do that and see how folks like it. I certainly have lots of wildlife to share!
I did manage to get five new photos posted to 500px, so here they are:
First, a minimalist scene from Washington’s expansive Palouse. We spent a long weekend there last spring, and it was such a beautiful area to explore. One can view rolling farmlands as far as the eye can see, and there’s no end to picturesque covered bridges and red barns to photograph.
I like the variety in this week’s set.
First is a shot from outside the Eielson Visitor Center in Denali National Park. I missed this on our first stop into the park, so I was determined to check it out on our way out. Evidently, these two massive moose got locked in a battle – literally. Unable to disentangle their antlers, they both died in the grass. A backpacker later found the skeletons and brought them back to the park officials. Now they’re on display for all to see.
This was also my submission for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness.
I’m excited to be getting well into our Denali adventures, so understandably, this week, Instagram featured several shots from that trip. But I try to keep some variety, so there’s a taste of a few other destinations as well this week.
Fun with layers!
Happy fall, everyone! If you’ve been following my site for a while, you’ll know I simply love love love love LOVE autumn! I can’t wait for the brilliant colors to paint the town. Look forward to photos of the Northwest bathed in oranges, reds, and yellows very soon!
This first image from this week on Instagram hails from Costa Rica. I thought these roots of the “walking palms” were so fascinating. By sprouting new roots and allowing older ones to rot away, these trees can literally walk along the forest floor.
This week on Instagram featured another fun set.
This first one is from the eclipse. Even with most of the sun obscured like this, it was nearly full daylight out. It just goes to show how bright the sun really is!
Happy Friday, all!
Boy, this was a really difficult week to sort these. This set represents so many disparate aspects of my life; it’s crazy to look at sometimes.
This first one was from our eclipse weekend. We met these pack goats at Olallie Lake, on some training missions. This sure seems like a smart way to go backpacking!
This was also my submission for last week’s Monochrome Madness from Leanne Cole.
