Whirligig by LAlight Whirligig by LAlight
Whatcom Creek was not at all what I expected. It runs right through the middle of a city park, with very easy trails. Though I shot at creek level at this amazing spot, the view from above was much more conducive to showing off the whirligig swirls at creek's edge.

Some great evening light and the beginnings of a rain shower made the atmosphere perfect for shooting. :)

Why didn't I think of "swirligig"?! Brilliant! Actually, I've had a secret fondness for the word "whirligig" since I was a kid for some reason. So I'm glad I finally got a chance to use it. =D
Can't thank you enough for taking me to such beautiful spots with great potential...and also for always rushing to the base, forcing me to look for some other comp to change things up a bit. ;) Thanks for the beautiful words...speaking of which, are an awful lot of them for being at a loss... :lol: :smooch:

lol..well I have had a fascination with swirligig since I as a kid..it's mine!! :p
was a pleasure showing you the beautiful NW..especially the spots I haven been too before :D was only rushing to make sure it was safe for you :) glad it benefitted in the comps, know you're better at capturing swirls better than me and figured I'd give you the better advantage point ;)
always a pleasure, doll! :hug:
