Clearing skies & basking birds

The sky had been foggy, but as it burned off, an odd shadow was left behind.

The sky cleared and transformed the lake to a dazzling blue.

Imagine my surprise to capture a basking eagle. I've never seen an eagle sunbathing like this before.

Even the blue heron was out taking advantage of the views. That's Mt. Rainier in the distance.

It looks really peaceful there.
I've almost forgotten what peace feels like since my kids became teenagers:¬(
