Hey everyone! It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time to post another picture. I had a tough time picking one today, I’m not sure why. Some days, it’s easy. Like, the day after getting home from Jamaica. I figured I should post something from Jamaica. (Well, then I had to pick WHICH picture from Jamaica to use, but that just came down to the first one I saw that was good enough.) Some days, it’s harder than that, but still not too hard. Like if it’s been awhile since I’ve posted a picture of a flower, I figure I should post a picture of a flower. Today though, I had no clue what I wanted to toss up here. I literally decided on 25 different pictures but then changed my mind before it made it up on the page.
In the end, I decided to go with this one. It’s a pretty old one, from before the time that I had my first digital SLR. (I had a 35mm SLR way back in the day, but I never really liked using it – the advantages of digital were SO blatant in my mind that the 35mm started collecting dust almost immediately after I got my little pocket digital, which was just a little 2mp POS. I’ve never looked back since, even though that meant spending a few years SLR-less.) But, I like the colors. Fall color shots always put me in a good mood, even in the spring when I should be getting excited about the nice weather that I keep hearing rumors is on its way. (But let’s be honest, I’m in Seattle, it won’t be summer here until July 5th.)
This was taken in Wenatchee National Forest, sort of between Blewett Pass and Leavenworth. For those outside of Washington state, that’s like me saying it was taken somewhere between NYC and Boston. In other words, I’m being kind of vague. But that’s fine for today. Most of the forest is evergreen, but there are definitely pockets of deciduous trees and bushes, particularly along the rivers. So you get some nice color if you know where to look. I don’t know the right way to wrap up today’s post.
