Today’s City Daily Photo theme is “Ephemeral,” celebrating the fleeting: the flash of light, the expression or gesture that flits almost at the edge of consciousness. A rainbow, too soon gone. I had the privilege of choosing today’s theme. I’m honored.

Dungeness Cemetery is the resting place of some of Sequim’s pioneer families. It’s small but beautifully located.
Remembering Birdman, one of our blogging community’s distinctive voices. He passed away suddenly last weekend. His posts, often enlivened with a fine wit, were always crafted with succinct commentary on life and living and his photos spoke equally well of his vision. I never met him but I feel as if I’ve lost a special friend. RIP, Birdman.
I love autumn. I just wish shorter days weren’t part of the package.
Paved with fallen leaves.
We stumbled into a portrait session on the trail in the Dungeness Recreation Area the other day. As the sun went down they moved into a field and deployed a reflector.
Lit right even the more ordinary spots on a trail can lift a heart.
Salmon are running again in the local rivers and Tuesday we headed to the Dungeness River to take a look. Because water levels are low there’s been concern that the runs may be affected but a couple of small storms lately have helped some.
I caught this critter mid-leap. The focus isn’t ideal but I love the reflection.
I also liked the splash it left behind.
Salmon are anadromous fish. They begin their lives in fresh water rivers, migrate into the ocean, and then return to their birth waters to spawn and die. Here you see migrating salmon swimming past the carcass of one which has finished its journey. Click here for more information about salmon life cycles.
