Skagit Valley Spider Web

I would have been early for work today if it had not been for the fog rolling across the Skagit Valley, illuminating the foothills of the Cascades with the sun’s reflection.  This inspired a slight detour with my Nikon, neglected since well before County Cork, Ireland, where I’d lost all creative energy.

I happened to pull off the road next to an abandoned farmhouse, which thwarted my original goal of capturing fog when I saw the spider webs lining one of the gates. 

I was only slightly late to work once I’d finished…and made a Starbuck’s pit stop…

  2. Nice photo! Where was the spider?

    1. That’s a good question Lisa! I guess I felt too safe behind my lens, I didn’t even think to look for any.

    A spider web is beautiful that is correct but there should be a spider as well somewhere…that is scary….I hate spiders….

    1. You know…I was so focused on the web that I wasn’t even thinking of the spiders! But, that’s a valid point. Suddenly, I feel like my skin is crawling… 🙂
