A couple of years ago around this time, I started a project called my Year of Trees. I took a picture of the same street every week for a year, noting the changes to the trees that line that road. I really enjoyed it and a number of my readers did too, so I decided to reprise it. But I wanted to focus on a different area. So I decided to go to Marymoor Park, a large park in the area with a number of vantage points. I found two that struck me–so each week (unless I’m sick or other major factors intervene) I will be posting pictures of those two places, taken from the same vantage point. I invite you to come along on my year-long journey with me.
Week 12: Last week’s pictures were dated the 19th, but I took them on the 20th. Somehow, I was a day behind in my mind. Well, we’re into winter here, even if the calendar says autumn still. While I was at Marymoor today taking these pictures, I saw an eagle flying into one of the trees. We have a lot of hawks and eagles here, and this one’s wingspan was huge. Of course I didn’t have my camera ready–it never fails. You’ll notice in the big tree’s picture here, you can now see a very large bird nest near the top of the tree now that the leaves have fallen from that area. And the second location–which is a dog walking part of the park, by the way, it has that windswept look that you get a lot here on the coastlines.
