The Green Place


I’ve reworked my site a bit, including shifting my masthead from blue to green, so this image seemed to celebrate the small change. It was taken at Deception Pass State Park, Whidbey Island, Washington.

Canoe Pass

I grew up on Whidbey Island, which is a very lovely place to spend one’s artistic formative years. This is a photo of Canoe Pass, which is part of the two span bridge more commonly referred to as Deception Pass (an earlier blog entry has a color photo of both spans).

This is a state park, and although the hike to this location isn’t for everybody, it is certainly accessible for anyone not daunted by steep, narrow trails. But because the bridge is photographed so often, I was looking for a different take on it, something a bit more unique. Here is Canoe Pass in infrared (720 nm), taken with a Hoya IR filter.
