2. Last one is my fav.

 

Photo experts.. why does a digital go to that yellow filter type color when aiming at sunset type photos?

Can it be corrected?

5. +1 for the love of this area.

I love it out here too and never get tired of the views. All through Western Washington there are views of mountains and ocean or bays and inlets.

I currently live a little east of the town of McKenna which puts me about 20-30 miles west of Mt. Rainier. I have a nice view of it from my kitchen and my balcony and an absolutely stunning post card view of it while driving home from shopping in nearby Yelm. After all these years I still gaze at that mountain and think of it as mine.

7. When I first came to the US and settled in Tacoma at 14 years old

Mt. Rainier was my reference point. I was able to put myself in the right direction anywhere I was with in sight of the mountain. When I was 19 I wound up singing on a national singing tour and we spent some time in Kansas and there was no reference point...it really blew me away that an area could be that flat!

13. Wow, me too!

I always know where I am at in reference to Mt. Rainier. I thought it was just me that did that! If I get disoriented all I need to do is look around and find it and everything is all right again. What is odd now that I think of it, is that while going to college up in Bellingham I never had the same sub-conscious connection with nearby Mt. Baker! That said, I suspect I could still be blindfolded and taken anywhere in this state that had a view of one or more of our mountains and be able to figure out where I am at more or less. I am not sure I would like Kansas so much, it sounds disorienting.

14. Ouch

Pierce County PD does do a lot of business out here with those in a bit of a hurry. FWIW they would be the guys n gals I call if I needed a cop so I appreciate their presence but I am careful to mind the speed limits. If ever you travel through the town of Roy which is between here and Tacoma be extra EXTRA careful with their speed limits. They set up speed traps in town more often than not and they do love the 'tourist dollars' if you get my meaning.

11. I know where you are!!!!!

You DO have lovely views.

I was born and raised in Puget Sound area and lived all over the state before I moved to the South.
And must admit I took the breathtaking views for granted all that time.

15. I can not imagine living anywhere else.

I spent 9 years in Germany, love the people, love the food better than American food (insert big sigh right here), but for me, there is no place like home.

6. Gorgeous but you are leaking out our little secret with these photos.

Could you please post a bunch of photos of overcast skies and dreary rain, maybe throw in a shot or two of I-5 traffic jams and 'sploding volcanoes. Thanks (btw I love each shot but my favorite is your black and white with the sailboat)

12. We call those streaks of light "angel fingers"

I have been on many many ferry rides across the Sound there, but rarely have seen it as golden as these pics.
Good shooting!
