A lone pine, feeling like he was picked last for kickball. On this extremely foggy day at Paradise I used the simplifying effect to my advantage.

The Painted Hills are one of the Seven Wonders of Oregon and after seeing them for the first time, it's really no wonder why!

Each band of yellow, orange, red and black reveals various geological eras dating back 35 million years. Formed by volcanic activity and changing weather patterns, the hills themselves are always changing. With different seasons, temperatures, humidity levels and light, the colors transform and shift from soft and pastel, to rich and vibrant. Since people are not allowed on the hills it can be difficult to get a sense of scale in an image. If I knew what animal caused the tracks off to the left, that may help to get an idea. Regardless, don't ya just wanna touch em?!

A beautiful stream just after sunset in Paradise at Mount Rainier National Park - one of my first trips to the park.

This is a grove on Noble Firs planted in 1988 near Mount Saint Helens. Their extremely straight trunks and uniform design can be dizzying to look at for extended periods of time.

And now for my first trick, an image from one of my most favorite photo excursions I've had up here - Lower Lewis River Falls in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. This was the Fall 0f 2015 and I'm really anxious for the season to start again!

I've always loved "looking up" shots in forests but I wanted to show something a little different for this particular take on it. A blanket of yellow leaves on the forest floor just below this tree peaked my interest. Before I knew it, I was lying on the ground the with tripod as low as it get could go and trying to compose a compelling image. Thankfully, almost no one showed up that day and I had all the time in the world to hog the entire trail for my own selfish needs.
