Canola, or Maybe Mustard

Canola, or Maybe Mustard

I have to admit, I can't really identify any of the plants that grow in the Palouse.  It's not like the Midwest where I grew up, corn and soybeans are pretty easy to tell apart.  I don't know wheat from lentils.  I initially assumed that...

Isolated Thunderstorm

Isolated Thunderstorm

I often hear the weather forecast mention isolated thunderstorms, but don't see them that much. Especially not in such a dramatic setting as the descent to the Snake River separating Lewiston, Idaho and Clarkston, Washington. The river is also consider...

Palouse Study #3

Palouse Study #3

Continuing my Palouse series with a cheery crayola scene... Visiting the Palouse, I got a sense of the region right away, but conveying that sense in a photograph has been tricky for me. I think it helps to have a subject in the frame; it still shows t...

Palouse Study #2

I visited the Palouse last spring during a college-shopping trip; that was my first chance to photograph this grain and lentil-growing region.  Then I tended to photograph in a more abstract way, which I have a habit of doing.  This year I de...

Palouse Study #1

I've just returned from a beautiful weekend in the Palouse, and I have a series of photos to share from this grain-growing region in Eastern Washington and Western Idaho.  Saturday was warm and sunny, and puffy white clouds increased throughout th...

Stehekin

Stehekin

At the far end of Lake Chelan is the town of Stehekin, and there are only three ways to get there. Boat, seaplane, or hike through the North Cascades.  Part of the charm is the remoteness. The first time we visited here in 2006 there was no outsid...

Lake Chelan

Lake Chelan

Lake Chelan is a narrow lake over 50 miles long, and the third deepest lake in the U.S. After Lake Tahoe and Crater Lake.  The name Chelan is a Salish Indian name for deep water.  The lake is nestled in the Cascade Mountains, with an underwat...

Little Boulder Creek

Little Boulder Creek

This little creek is one of many creeks and rivers feeding Lake Chelan from the North Cascade and Chelan Mountains.  It's a little marshy, but this is the view from the 'top' of the lake, just past Stehekin.

Rainbow Falls

Rainbow Falls

A view of Rainbow Falls in Stehekin, where we vacationed over the weekend.  We rented bikes to ride to these falls, so I was traveling light with camera gear: just the lens on the camera and no tripod.  It was probably good for me because I t...

Lake Michigan with a Cloud Frame

Lake Michigan with a Cloud Frame

One of many paths leading to the beach at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore in Beverly Shores.  This one happens to be at the old Red Lantern. The lake was starting to shift to its usual blue-green color as the sun emerged from behind a thick c...
