"Peaking" peak! - Mt Shucksan

Posted by Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 12 October 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

While enjoying our first visit to Washington State's renowned Skagit Valley, Barbara and I enjoyed the autumn atmosphere as we visited a few nursery's to see their Autumn displays of flowers and pumpkins. I noticed this mountain peak peering over the lower range of the valley.....I could not be sure about the Mountain's name until today, October 12, when the amazing Steve Rice advised me of the name...it is Mount Shucksan.
My gratitude to Steve for "being there!" Steve - You are the Best!

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
