The other day my iPhone app alerted me of some potential morning color in the sky.  So, I planned a morning shoot and figured out what time I’d have to get up to make the sunrise.  Well…, per usual I was running a little late.  I thought I could still make it in time for some good color but then got stuck behind a school bus while driving through the neighborhood.  By the time… Read More

Last month we were treated with a clear sky during the Super-Harvest Blood Moon.  If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you know that both of these events are rare.  (To explain what a Super-Harvest Blood Moon is I’m going to get a little technical.  So, if you feel your eyes rolling towards the back of your head, please skip to the next paragraph before you pass out.)  As you know, there is… Read More

I wasn’t sure about the weather that morning as it was quite grey, but it turned out to be a great overcast day with a few sun breaks…. Read More

This was a fun night with a little excitement.  When I first got to the beach you could see Mt. Baker in the distance.  There were a few people walking on the beach and enjoying the beautiful day.  It has been a very mild winter so far up here in the Pacific Northwest.                           This next image was taken from… Read More

We had a few days where the fog rolled in so I took the opportunity to go into town and take some photos of the local architecture. If you click on any of the images you will be directed to my website where you can see additional scenes from the streets. It was a great day for photos.  The streets were pretty empty and the fog filtered everything with an even light, which made the… Read More

                I’ve been posting images that have been mostly green so I thought I’d post something with a little color. This is one of my favorite places.  This is looking west over the Straits of Juan de Fuca with Vancouver Island on the right.
