The Beauty of an Early Winter Storm in Birch Bay

On Friday, an early winter storm blew into Birch Bay, bending trees and creating white-capped waves in the bay. The violence of the storm was not enough to do any real damage, so it was possible to brave the stiff, cold winds to see the beauty it helped create on and by the bay, where land, water, light, and clouds meet.  The following are a few pictures showing the beauty painted by winds coming down from Canada.
Dense clouds, clear horizon with sun behind the San Juan Islands
The colors of early winter at Birch Bay
The dark bay in some turmoil, with light on the horizon

Seagulls fight the wind and waves to find a place to land
The stormy day ends
