I’m in Seattle for a dear friend’s photography workshop on the Olympic Peninsula this weekend. I was lucky enough to wander the gardens and forest around his wonderful home yesterday. Coming from Alberta, the blossoms, warmth and greenery was almost a shock to me. Certainly a glimpse of a future we will hopefully see within a couple of weeks. The light on the bark of this cedar danced well with the abstracted shapes in the background. Those were thrown out of focus by the a shallow depth of field using a 24mm lens at f/2.0.

An image of the colourful bark of a Rainbow Eucalyptus tree I photographed on the island of Kaua’i in Hawaii is the Picture of the Week on the Science Friday website. They produce great web, video and audio content with their goal for SciFri to be brain fun for curious people. I agree and certainly found the article that they wrote about Rainbow Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus deglupta) very interesting. It was fun to collaborate a little bit with their team. Thanks Becky and Andrew!
