If you live in England #10 might mean something else entirely.

Nature takes it’s course

The town mows this field to the edge of a small hillock that separates it from the woods that grows on the other side of a river. It’s there that Nature is allowed to do as it chooses.

Meeting House

Usually when I happen by this church, the doors are closed, but this time I was fortunate enough to find them open, and even more fortunate that the time of day was providing light inside.

Seat of power

The “seat of power” probably meant something different when this piece of farm equipment was last used. My guess is that the person who sat here had more common sense than many of those sittting in powerful positions do today. They worked harder and complained less, too. Enough said.

Kalaloch Tree Cave

Black And White Photography


Along the Pacific Ocean on the Olympic Peninsula, you will find the majestic Kalaloch Tree Cave.  This majestic tree seems to defy gravity by doing the splits over a runoff channel that has exposed it’s root.  Despite the harsh environment the tree is doing quite well.  I however, got a bit wet trying to take this shot.  It was raining and I was crouching in the surf to get a better angle.  A wave snuck up behind me and almost swamped me and the camera.  I managed to get away with a wet foot and a good laugh.  If you look closely you can see the rain drops in the picture.  You can see more from my Olympic Peninsula reboot trip on the blog.
