Making a frame for the mountain on this particular morning, seemed like something creative to try. Tom Torrens is a well known Northwest artist who created a bell that has stood on our patio for 20 years. The frame for the first photo is part of that bell, and presented itself as the perfect accompaniment for a photograph on such a stellar morning. As the day progressed and the sun began to set, the cloud formations were nothing short of dazzling. And looking easterly, at the same moment as the sun disappeared behind the cloud bank, in the clarity of the brilliant late afternoon light - the mountain and Commencement Bay were equally beautiful.
