Well, this is really annoying, but I had no option but to give you a post about our hike today without any pictures at all. I've tried two different browsers and several different tricks, but none of my beautiful pictures will download into my blog. Then, I went on YouTube and found a way!
|I found a workaround, so I'm happy!|
Thank goodness for YouTube! I found that if the regular way to upload pictures isn't working, I can simply drag an image from my desktop in the post, so I'll start this post over. But I'm still having some difficulty, so I'll cut the images into just a few. That first picture is taken at the viewpoint on the hike on the way to Fragrance Lake. We had some fog, which is what is gracing this picture.
The water was so calm and clear, it was gorgeous looking at the beautiful reflections. I've gotten some that look like this over the years, but it's not often that it is this clear.
|Melanie, using portrait mode on my new iPhone|
We had perfect hiking weather, and we played with our cameras' portrait modes and I got some great shots, which you will not be able to see (except for this one which is one of my favorites pictures of Mel I've ever taken.). We hiked back to the trailhead via the logging road, rather than back down the trail. We ended up covering more than 6.5 miles and 1,750 feet up and down.
|Straight trees, eh?|
We last did this hike on August 25th, and today we saw this stand of trees, which I almost always notice and enjoy, but today the colorful trees made for a lovely frame to admire them even better.
It looks simply glorious - and thank you for finding a way to circumvent blogger.ReplyDelete
Beautiful shots! I'll have to give that a try if the problem persists. I know other bloggers have noted it in the last few hours.ReplyDelete
Glad you're getting out there and enjoying the hike, regardless of pictures!ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos, and that's a nice picture of your friend Melanie, DJan. Love the straight trees! Hey I'm having the same problem trying to set up a blog for tomorrow, I can't upload any photos. I'll try your 'drag & drop' method, thanks for the tip!ReplyDelete
I'm glad to see some color. We drove into the city today and the greenbelt along the freeway, usually going gold, was just brown. :-(ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tip! I have been struggling loading a photo also. Blogger is having fits I guess! You had a pretty hike! Nice photo of Mel!!ReplyDelete
I'll have to try that, I had trouble with pictures too recently. Such a beautiful hike. Glad to follow along.ReplyDelete
Quite a few bloggers are talking about difficulty uploading photos. It should probably be fixed shortly but it is frustrating. You don't know if it's you, your computer or what ever.ReplyDelete
Thankfully, I haven’t encountered this problem — yet.ReplyDelete
Aren't you clever to find a work around. It seems you are not alone. Loved your reflections shot and of course Mel.ReplyDelete
That's a nice shot of Melanie. Bummer about Blogger's photo issues. I never have a problem with WordPress. Never.ReplyDelete
I do not often take photos from my pixel phone. It does a decent job, but I have problems with composition and tweaking and downloading...they disappear somewhere on my computer. Therefore I just load from PHotoshop to the blogger. What a lovely area of the world you live in!!ReplyDelete
I love pictures of fog... or as Merlin called it, "the dragon's breath".ReplyDelete
The problem seems to have gotten sorted.ReplyDelete
A wonderful hike at the best time in Seattle.ReplyDelete
Worth the effort. Nice photos. I esp. like the fog!ReplyDelete
That is definitely a wonderful photo of Melanie. I'm considering a new iPhone too. Looks like another fun, healthy hike for the both of you.ReplyDelete
Dear DJan, I'm unable to insert photographs also, but then I usually do so from Wikipedia because they are free and, more importantly, I don't have a camera and the way to take photographs on the phone short of eludes me. So I use ones from Wikipedia that I can pull over onto my computer screen and then into my posting.ReplyDelete
Your photographs are lovely. I'd so like to see the "real" thing. Fragrance lake seems almost magical. Thanks for sharing. Peace.
Dear DJan, forgot to sign my name to the previous comment. Dee ReadyReplyDelete
Good to see you again (after your hike & the beginning of ours), KimReplyDelete
