The Sammamish River - Spring is Trying to Show Up

Posted by Denny Jump Photo (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 17 February 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

We are very fortunate to live nearby a huge park and a long trail (23 miles altogether in length) that follows this river all the way from the northern end of Lake Sammamish (Which we can walk to from our house) and the trail continues all the way to the Northern ind of Lake Washington . This is a portion of the river that flows through Redmond and Woodinville Washington. I could go on forever describing this locale, so, instead, I will break it up into "snippets" here and there, along with various photos as we go.
I captured this shot on Thursday morning 16 Feb 2017. This view is looking down river which, in this case, is actually flowing North ;-) I hope you like it.

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

- Note from Denny:
My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music ... especially, but not exclusively, Jazz, and Blues. The following two musical artists and lyrics seem to really sum-up rather well, where my inspiration and spiritual beliefs reside:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
