Pacific Northwest - Seattle and Victoria, BC

Pacific Northwest - Seattle and Victoria, BC

The images found here don't fit into my usual national parks type locations but there are some photos I hope you'll find of interest - maybe even in a whimsical way.

Both cities are beautiful gems and deserve a "chamber of commerce" treatment. They didn't get that here but only because I haven't had the opportunity to do so. I will in the future, though.

Panoramics

Panoramics

Panoramic photos are, to me, the real fun part of photography. A good "pano" combines creativity, solid composition, spot-on exposure, near perfect focus, patience, and the abiltiy to do all that very quickly. And, there's even the requirement to have some basic mechanical skills as well. Once you have all the desired exposures, you sit back and let the software automatically put it all together - most of the time. You'll find the photos in this collection scattered throughout other albums, as well.

Texas Hill Country

Texas Hill Country

Texas Hill Country is a region of hills, some rugged and desolute, others gentle and welcoming. But, in the early spring, the only thing that matters is the wild flower bloom and acres and acres of bluebonnet, paintbrush, cactus, and dozens of other varieties. I've made two trips to Hill Country and am looking forward to the next one. The hospitality is warm, friendly and open; I've had ranchers direct us to unknown fields of wildflowers just because they saw us with our cameras.

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone, the first national park, has it all - geysers, waterfalls, canyons, terraced springs, thermal pools, mudpots, wild rivers, lush valleys, and wildlife - so much wildlife that Yellowstone is often referred to as "The American Serengeti". Bison, elk, deer, moose, wolves, coyotes, black bear, and of course "griz" live here. I've been to Yellowstone many times and see it differently every time. And, I'll go back many more times because you simply can never see it all.

Sunrise - Sunset -  ALBUM IN PROGRESS

Sunrise - Sunset - ALBUM IN PROGRESS

There's nothing quite like experiencing the beginning of a day nor the end. Working to capture a sunrise is a lot like gambling - you are betting ahead of time that conditions will be favorable to capture those first rays of light. Sometimes you win, sometimes... And, sunsets are like that, too. You hope there is good cloud structure to show off all the color along with an interesting foreground.

The Puppies

The Puppies

This is strictly a personal indulgence featuring puppies that have shared our home and made it a more comfortable place. No show dogs here although we have been very proud of "The Puppies" and always thought they were real champions and wonderful, loving and lovable companions. And, they were - and are.



Wildflowers and Trees

Wildflowers and Trees

A couple of friends gave me the idea of a gallery consisting only of wildflowers and trees. It's a great idea so check in - some images are found in other albums but here, they are the stars.
