Just enough time for a couple quick pics today, so I thought I would show you the wonderful view I get out of my kitchen window on those rare days when the air is perfectly clear. Just so I don’t mislead you or anything, keep in mind that without the benefit of my 200mm lens on my camera, good old Mount Baker there doesn’t look like it’s quite that close. In fact it looks far enough away that like I already said, I can only see it at all if the air is perfectly clear. After all, I’m seeing it from Vancouver, and that beautiful sleeping volcano is in the State of Washington, which is (depending on who you ask it seems) approximately a 143 mile drive from where I live. (One of the perks of living at the intersection I live at is that it’s one of the intersections most often used as a starting point when determining distances of various places from Vancouver.) So I’ve taken several pictures of the mountain on the rare days when I can see it clearly, but I do believe these are among the absolute clearest I’ve ever had them come out. Thus, I was able to blow them up without losing the clarity, making it look like I was living much closer to a volcano than I would ever choose to do. Everybody have a great week, and we’ll see you soon. Be happy, stay safe. PS. If you think that mountain looks large in either of those pictures, I humbly suggest clicking on the first picture once at least, and twice if you are really brave.
