Mt. Rainier and the clouds cover | Photo of the Day

November 29th, 2011 at 1:42 pm by Chad Coleman

Mt. Rainier is shrouded by clouds moving into the region in this view from the South end of Mercer Island on Tuesday, November 29, 2011. Ten minutes earlier and it would have been a really nice frame, but from the I-90 bridge to my vantage point takes a few. Still, I personally enjoy ANY day where I can see “the mountain.”

Pumpkin patch at Serres Farm in Redmond

Above, Sally Roos, age 4, takes her picks to a wheelbarrow at the pumpkin patch at Serres Farm in Redmond on Tuesday, October 4, 2011.

I’ve thought many times about a “Photo of the Day” series here on the blog, but since I run this photo blog solo for the news group it just isn’t feasible. I’m going to make an effort to share more single frames without painting myself into a schedule. We’ll see how it goes… Above, is a photo from an upcoming piece in The Scene. Thankfully no camera bodies were hurt in the making of this image. Happy splashing!

The night before the super harvest moon

September 23rd, 2010 at 10:59 am by Chad Coleman

A near full moon rises behind the lights at Islander Stadium on Mercer Island on Tuesday, September 21, 2010. Last night, September 22, was a Super Harvest Moon, an event that won’t occur again until 2029. Of course we had a regional cloud cover here that blocked the moonrise, and I get to chalk another in a string of astronomy photography misses for myself including the “bombing” of the moon and the recent Northern Lights that were weaker than expected.
