Living in the Seattle area we are incredibly lucky to have several national parks just a short ride away. My favorite is Mr. Rainier NP. This is the skyline trail in mid-summer when the lupine were in full bloom. I hope I can get up to see it again this summer.

Often when I am out photographing, I like to just wander around to see if I can find something interesting to shoot. This is a scene I found while I was driving aimlessly in the Willamette Valley wine country. I am not sure exactly what this farm is growing. It looks like it may be a newly planted orchard, but I like the lines leading up to the barn and the horizon. I also like the puffy clouds in the sky of this image.

When I was in the Columbia Gorge recently I drove out to Columbia Hills State Park in Washington. It was a beautiful day and the balsmaroot was blooming. The bright yellow flowers looked beautiful against the deep blue sky.

When I went down to Oregon recently, I took a hike up to see Punchbowl Falls. The trail follows Eagle Creek and this is a view of the forest along the trail. It looked quintessentially Pacific Northwest with moss covering most of the trees. The Columbia Gorge gets a large amount of rainfall which results in this very mossy, green and lush forest.

Recently a friend told me that the mustard was blooming in the Willamette Valley of Oregon so I drove down to check it out. The Willamette Valley is know for its vineyards and some vineyard owners plant mustard as a cover crop and sometimes it just grows wild. Vineyards are always an interesting photo op because the lines and patterns are so interesting. This is a shot of Winderlea Vineyard & Winery which is owned and operated by our friends. It was such a beautiful sight to see the mustard blooming in their vineyard!

In the Pacific Northwest we are lucky to live so close to Canada. Vancouver is only about 2 hours by car from our house if the border crossing is not backed up. Vancouver is a great city with a beautiful waterfront. This is the skyline shot from Stanley Park at twilight. The reflections on the harbor were so beautiful that night!

There are several good reasons why Washington state's nickname is the "Evergreen State". Of course the vast majority of our trees are conifers which are evergreen. But in my mind more importantly, the high amount of precipitation in our state means that most areas are very green all year round. This image was taken in the Olympic National Park which has one of the highest annual rainfall of any area in the country. This area is just so green!

This is an old image of Cape Alava on the Olympic Peninsula in WA state. This part of the coastline in very remote as there is no road access. I hiked out from Lake Ozette which takes about 2 hours. It was a beautiful sunset, but when I tried to return after sunset, I could not find the trailhead. So I had to spend a long cold night out on the beach. If I ever do this again I will be more prepared with a flashlight so I can hike back in the dark.

This is another image I sold at an art fair recently. I took this image several years ago, but this must be what the Palouse farm fields look like right now. Such a beautiful place anytime of the year!
