During cold months I often go on walks around town or the park with my camera. I call these journeys photowalks. It's a way to keep creativity alive during the winter months.
One of my favorite spots last year was Blackbird Island in Leavenworth. I took this long-exposure photo during sunset in the park last year. I wanted to capture the color of the sun on the bark as well as the deep blues in the sky. For me, the shot is about capturing a feeling rather than easy-to-identify structures, elements of nature.
