Pursuit of the Picturesque – A Misty Valley

This photo I can’t take credit for; but that is precisely why I’m posting about it. When I first saw this photograph of a misty valley on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, I was immediately taken with it. I later asked my friend Carl Gray, the photographer, if I could use it as my avatar on Twitter just after joining the site (a little over a year ago). He graciously said yes, and since then it has been a consistent part of my online “brand” not only on Twitter, but on other sites and tools like LinkedIn and Disqus as well. I’ve received compliments and questions about it several times.

I had the immense privilege of visiting Seattle & Tacoma, WA last year for about a week, and I have to say, it was one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been…everywhere one turned, there were landscape photo opportunities, and I loved my stay there for that as well as countless other reasons, from the coffee to the culture. I can’t wait to go back, but in the meantime, Carl makes an excellent Washington tourism promoter with his many wonderful photos of the beautiful state in which he resides. Thank you, Carl, for capturing and sharing the beauty of nature with me and others through your photography!
