My family and I go to Scottsdale, AZ every year in March for Spring Training. If you’re not familiar with Spring Training, it’s preseason for the Major League Baseball teams. Half the league goes to Florida, (Grapefruit League) and the other half goes to Arizona (Cactus League). Anyway, enough about baseball.

These images were taken at the Russian Gulch State Park. Again, hoping for a dramatic sunset over the Pacific Ocean, I was met with almost clear skies. However, the waves were around four to five feet at times which… Read More

I went to Hurricane Ridge to take photos of the Olympic Mountain Range at sunset. I was hoping for wildflowers and big puffy clouds. Well…, the wildflowers were almost done blooming and as soon as the sun went down the big puffy clouds vanished. This was probably the best image I got that night. Just before I took this shot I was focused on the mountain range but could hear something walking… 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.
