Rare Commodity: A Beautiful Monday

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 14 January 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

A gray day with some tinges of color....This is beautiful Lake Sammamish (Suh-Maa-mish) that lies east of Seattle in the State of Washington.

Looming above all of this is mighty Mount Rainier....Yes, it IS a volcano - at 14,411 feet elevation, Rainer's last eruption was 1894, I believe.

This location on Lake Washington is very close to our house...We are very lucky ;-)
I hope you like this ;-)

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
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."

What a location and if I could have this view right where I live I would be pretty content indeed. I like the moody nature of the scene that you photographed here Dennis.
