Winter on Whidbey can obviously be rainy and drizzly and, at other times in this season, it can present us with beautiful landscapes and photographic subjects. Marsha Morgan captured a few of these scenes to share with you.

  1. Beautiful local work, Marsha – Whidbey well represented! Especially love the perspective and composition of ‘Almost bare apple tree at the Whidbey Winery on Langley Road’…have been by there many times on my bicycle and dreamed of an image like that! Keep calm and shutter on!
