Theme Day: Black and white in color

Today’s theme features photographs where color is so muted that the shot appears to be black and white. In the middle of winter here in the Pacific Northwest this isn’t much of a stretch. My shot is from the Dungeness bluffs looking south across the Strait of Juan de Fuca toward the Olympic Mountains.

Lobby art

On a grey day this striking glass art brightens a corner in the Sequim Civic Center lobby. The piece was commissioned by friends and family in memory of Bobbi Burkett, wife of Sequim’s former City Manager Steve Burkett. The work was designed and constructed by artist Bob Rigg of Seattle Glassblowing Studio.

Winter buffet

We had snow down to sea level again yesterday (though this photo is from an earlier, bigger snowfall).

This is oceanspray (holodiscus discolor), a native plant that’s part of the rose family. The seeds you see here are an important food source for birds through the winter. Before going to seed, the plant’s spring blossoms provide nectar to butterflies and other insects.
