This second pic just looks cold, doesn't it? Those are the two rocks that make the gate I was talking about. I just love this spot and this view!
And this guy just happened by while I already had the camera ready. He really cooperated by flying right over my head, not too far away. This shot is with my regular lens, probably zoomed to about 70mm or so. He was joined by a friend shortly after I snapped this shot, but because of the light behind them when I shot over my head, they just looked like two big birds in the picture. Oh well, I think this one suffices!
Someone, I think, decided he didn't need the liner in his coat. I was NOT this cold. I dress for the weather - heavy coats, mittens, YakTrax... I even had a hat in my pocket that day. I didn't wear it, though - didn't want to mess up my hair!
And, finally, since we were out and about, we ran down to the two auto supply stores downtown to look for sparkplugs for the truck. While Jason was inside, I ran across the street to get a harbor shot. I wanted to get a shot of an eagle on a fishing boat, but they weren't cooperating, so I had to just settle for the fishing boat(s).
Hope you enjoyed the view. It should be illegal to live in a place so gorgeous!! The view of the mountains and harbor as we came over the hill into town on the way to church yesterday literally made me catch my breath. It's just so pretty, even in the middle of the winter, following a week of rain. What's not to like about that!
