The Daily Post: Scale, Mt. Stuart and Wind turbines

Michelle W. has called for a study of scale this week. My entry was taken recently of Mt. Stuart, located in the Cascades Mountains of Washington State. At 9, 416 feet above sea level, its claim to fame is that it is the largest chunk of exposed granite in the contiguous US forty-eight states. Here it rises above the fog-filled Kittitas Valley of Eastern Washington with wind turbines shown in the middle ground left.

The Weekly Photo Challenge: New

With Michelle’s Challenge this week of new, I present some real cute newborns: salmon from a hatchery.  These are new salmon eggs just in the process of hatching into Alevins or fry. Some day these might become tasty morsels on someone’s barbecue grill.

Photo Challenge: Decent:

Cheri has challenged this week with descent. Waterfalls are a great example of the concept. His post addresses the challenge with a series of photos taken of Whatcom Creek as it runs through Whatcom Falls Park in Bellingham WA. It can also serve as a post for Ailsa’s Travel Theme Autumn as the leaves were turning.
