These are images by Ron Black using his 40D Canon DSLR camera.   The Seattle Arboretum waterfront  has a neat floating walkway in Lake Washington which give nice views of the area near University of Washington.  This area has had much rainfall in recent weeks, and the walk had a few flooded spots, and some muddy patches too.   We enjoyed wading past the wet and took a few pictures.....

I hope you will respond via  email with any comments:
