Photo of the day: God bless our rangers

As we walked up the hill from where we parked our car, on our way to participate in a candlelight vigil to honor our friend and coworker Margaret Anderson, who had been killed by a gunman while on duty in Mount Rainier National Park the week before, I stopped to take a photograph of the sign at Arrow Lumber. Messages like this had gone up all over Eatonville, Elbe, and Ashford, letting those of us who commute to work know how much the community supported Margaret's family and friends. It was incredibly comforting.

It's just a simple image of a sign, but I am so pleased with how this one turned out. The lighting within the sign caused the automatic exposure in the camera to darken the image in response, and so the pale blue sky of early dusk turned deeper, making the colors more intense.
