We’ve got smoky conditions again. When I took this photo yesterday we could still see the mountains. Today they’re gone and our skies have a thick, yellow-grey pallor. As Houston emerges from epic floods some of our western states are on fire. There seems no end to the miseries some people have to endure.
Port Angeles, Sequim’s neighbor to the west, nestles like Sequim at the base of the Olympics. Its location offers a different perspective of the mountains. At this point in summer there’s not a lot of snow left on the peaks.
We camped at Fort Flagler recently. The backdrop of the Olympic Mountains along the shore of Port Townsend Bay is always a beautiful sight. And it’s only an hour from Sequim.
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.

DH likes the look of this road as it sinuously works its way uphill. As always, I like the mountain view.
A cold, steely grey day frames the Olympic Mountains in late afternoon.
The mountains are nicely snow frosted. That snow recharges our aquifers as it melts so it’s always comforting to see plenty of the white stuff.
