August 24th - Madrona and Harbor Seal

Courtney and I took our friend Maurice to the west side today for a short hike. I thought this Madrona tree looked very nice in the sunlight with Haro Strait in the background - I like the red and yellow bark against the blue water.

I also liked this harbor seal hauled out on a rock sunning herself as the fog burned away. Couldn't decide which of these photos to post today so I picked two this time.

  1. Only two?!

    Nice choices, and I agree - the madronna backed by blue is nice.

    Hi Maurice!

  2. I like the colours - nice light as the fog is lifting.

  3. I've never seen a Madrona before. That looks like a cool tree. Reminds me of silver birches - the bark just peels away.

    The harbour shot is interesting too. I like the building in the mist and the sun on the seal.

    Great work.
