My Favorite Images from 2018

2108 was a big year of change for my photography. I set out to spend more time on the creative side of photography and less time on the "community" side of photography. To that end I walk away from social media (Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, 500px etc). In addition I refocused my website towards my Architectural,... Continue Reading →

Is One Image worth the Trip?

Perhaps landscape photography is like Vegas, The House Always Wins. But seriously landscape photography is definitely a pursuit without any guarantees. All the planning, the travel, the gear prep, the early mornings, doesn't matter because nothing ensures that you'll return with a bevy of stunning images. In December we have a, newly annual, tradition of... Continue Reading →

Responsible Droning

I confess that when it comes to drones and aerial photography I’m a bit perplexed and dismayed. On one hand I have a lifelong love of airplanes and flying. And combining that with my love of photography the two together are a match made in my own personal heaven. (More about my Avgeekness at the... Continue Reading →

Patos Island

I feel blessed for every day that I'm able to call the San Juan Islands home, some days, however, feel even more blessed. Such is always the case when I get to visit Patos Island. For the second straight year the "Round the County" race commitee generious ferried me to stunning Patos Island. And the... Continue Reading →

Goat Lake Trail - September 2018 My first trip was... Continue Reading →

Saying Goodbye to the Magic of Fair Isle

My time on Fair Isle is rapidly drawing to a close. But I’m still up before dawn shooting in the morning and scouting in the afternoon. I can’t quite tell which I enjoy more. The landscape here is so diverse and amazing. I’ve never before experienced the high, sheer cliffs like the one I’ve experienced... Continue Reading →

The Best Laid Plans of Mice & Men

Do sometimes, if only rarely, work to perfection. Such was my convoluted journey to Fair Isle Scotland (although locals might stubbornly prefer “Fair Isle Shetland”. But I’m smart enough not to get involved with that debate). And although I confess to being weary from the journey, it was so definitely worth it. Fair Isle Scotland... Continue Reading →

Fair Isle Scotland – The Prelude

Wikipedia What’s that old saying, “Mamma don’t let you babies grow up to be Cowboy’s”, well let’s add “Don’t let your Photographer’s become travel agents”. Well at least not this one. It all started out innocently enough, an email blast with an “unbelievable” airfare from Seattle to Edinburgh. My mind quickly went to rolling Scottish... Continue Reading →

First Visit to the Olympic Peninsula

Blue Mountain - Olympic National Park, Washington It seems this is the year I'm crossing a bunch of things off my list. Or more accurately, starting new photographic relationships. And the Olympic National Park could be a very long and intimate fling. Such a stunning location. And I fully realize that more than a few folks... Continue Reading →
