PHOTO ESSAY BY JAMIE WHITAKER

All year ’round, blue is always on display at Planet Ebey. “Planet Ebey” is my name for Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve.
I call it that because—to me—it’s like going to another world. It’s always gorgeous, always different and almost always colored in blue. I find all colors alive there, but these photographs represent the blue of it.
Whidbey Islanders probably are familiar with the Reserve. For those who aren’t, it’s a unit of the National Park Service on Whidbey near Coupeville.
Jamie Whitaker likes to take photographs. It started 50-plus years ago when she received a Brownie camera as a gift. She likes to take photos but not to be in them, she said, so it has worked out great. She is inspired and fascinated by the animal kingdom and human nature and finds comfort and hope in the natural world.
