Seattle thunderstorms are typically wimpy. Sometimes all we get is a single peal of thunder.
But last week the Puget Sound area was hit with an unusually violent thunderstorm. At least one microburst in the South Sound area sent trees crashing through houses. Near where I live several key traffic lights were out due to lightning strikes, backing up rush hour traffic and turning a five minute leg of the journey into a 45 minute ordeal.
I luckily avoided all that. But I did go to Magnuson Park and capture some of the angry looking clouds. (Cee’s B&W Challenge this week is the letter V.)
I took this photo with my old pocket point and shoot in August 2008 near the western entrance to North Cascades National Park. Posted for Cee’s B&W Challenge with the nature topic.
The topic for Cee’s B&W Challenge this week is liquid. I took these photos in the spring when I was playing around with capturing wavelets (they weren’t really big enough to qualify as waves) on a rock beach. I love all the different textures and shapes.
In a lucky bit of timing, the WPC topic this week is H2O.
The topic for Cee’s B&W Challenge this week is seating, and it’s only apropos for this blog to feature park benches. These benches were newly installed at Echo Lake Park in the spring of 2015. I really like their old-fashioned styling.
