Photo Essay: An Autumn Day in DyeaFirst posted in September, 2006
I took a few photographs today...
...just some of the things that stood out, that's all.
No thoughts, just images - but I'll tell you what you see.
That one, above, is the Sawtooth Range.
Devil's club, turned yellow.
A purple flower now out of bloom: fireweed -
so called because it's one of the first to colonize after a burn,
living up to a more literal interpretation of its name.
A varied thrush, silhouetted.
Face Mountain after its first snow.
The locals say there's a face there.
Sam sees one... and so do I...
... but not the same one.
Face Mountain, framed by foliage.
A seal swimming the Taiya, near the Dyea Flats.
Autumn colors reflected in a puddle.
And the road home.
