13 Sep 19 We'll complete the forgotten images with this one of a tree, or perhaps, two trees. Like last week's Friday macro/closeup, this is something along the same lines. The water in the background is the Straights of Juan de Fuca, and it is along this drive that I take the Bald Eagle shots that I occasionally share. (The western end of this body of water becomes the Pacific Ocean). On this particular day we missed the birds, but were treated to some nice blue skies with white clouds, a few deer, and other items of interest such as these trees. On the other side of the water is Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The two countries divide the body of water in the middle so it is possible to visit the other country without ever touching land or needing a passport. On this late spring afternoon the flowers were really showing off and the drive paralleling the Straights was just beautiful. IF you visit Sequim you owe it to yourself to make this short and easy drive or, better yet, walk, enjoying all it has to offer. If you just stroll along the road it will take you less than an hour unless you happen to be carrying your camera; then it might take you a wee bit longer.
This is basically what the camera saw. Alpha & Omega Nikon D500; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 500; 1/2500 sec @ f / 9.
