I love blue skies, but I learned long ago that in order to really enjoy the wonders of the Pacific Northwest, you must be willing to venture out on gray days too. In fact, gray days
present special opportunities for the photographer, not the least of which is even light without shadows. On my Wednesday morning hike I opted to check out the world at my feet. Included here are some of the “stars” from my “head-down” gallery of images. “Gray? Don’t stay. Don’t pout. Get out!”
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
