The mountains of the Olympic Peninsula are gleaming purple-pink in the early morning light. It is unbelievably beautiful.
I don’t have any pictures of them though because I don’t dare use my camera. I only have one card with me and last night when I went to download the day’s pictures I accidentally deleted them. Now I don’t dare use the card again just in case I can salvage the lost photos. Lane has offered to buy another card for me today while I’m in my meeting, but until then I can’t take any pictures.
(I’ve been shooting digital since 2004 and this is the first time I’ve lost my photos while transferring them and I’m still puzzling over how it happened.)
Lane doesn’t have much trouble finding a card (16 gigs to replace the 2 gig card I was using) and he immediately puts it to use documenting the fact that it is a gorgeous, cold, clear day.
