Waiting For The Storm
Taken at Lake Crescent Lodge. Used multiple exposures blended to get more of the drama of the approaching storm. Adirondack chairs were sitting there empty and were a perfect complement to the image.
St Helen's Is Returning To Life
This image reassures me that life is really returning to Mt St Helen's!
Mountain Phlox Views
The Phlox flowers are amazing how they grow right in the most amazing and beautiful spots. They make for interesting compositions!
Liberty Bell Glory
Blue Lake Grandeur
The fall Larch trees reflecting on the waters of Blue Lake in the North Cascades is a sight to be seen by all. Truly awe inspiring.
Lake Moraine's Calling
I took image near Nisqually river valley on Paradise side of Mt Rainier. The sunrise glowing through the early morning high wind whipped clouds gives this image some real impact.

Sunrise from Sourdough
The image was taken from the Sourdough Ridge trail out of the Sunrise on Mt Rainier. The Sunrise complex is seen below and the mountain clouds around Rainier create balance and a dynamic feel to the image.
Snow Lake Majesty
Taken at Snow Lake in the winter of 2014. Perfect winter day for a cold hike to the lake using our new microspikes on our boots for traction! This image is a panoramic shot and is multiple images merged together.
One of the most stunning mountain cirques surround this beautiful lake in Glacier National Park. I worked around the shoreline to find the best foreground image for this shot.
Winter Comes to Lake 22
Lake 22 is an extremely popular hike that is accessible even in the winter. It is a fantastic lake that has a spectacular cirque walls around the lake.
Stilly Winter Landscape
Peaceful Bridal Veil Pool
Bridal Veil falls is a very popular hike that is enjoyed by many NW hikers most of the year round. This peaceful pool of water attracted my eye and I used very slow shutter speed to get this calming effect of the water.
Looking down the valley to Alpental.
Pryenee Foothills Dawning
This image was taken during our long steep climb up out of St Jean Pied de Port in France into the Pyrenees mountains. Climbing in the early morning the foothills had some beautiful rural scenes.
Elliot creek flows out Goat Lake (Mountain Loop Hwy) and has some very beautiful waterfalls. I placed my camera/tripod and wide angle lens low down near water's edge and used a neutral density filter with a very slow shutter speed to get this effect.
Shade and Light
Truly one of the most majestic mountains in the Northwest, Mt Shuksan. This image was taken early morning in winter of 2015 from near Mt Baker Ski Lodge. I post process the image to make it more dramatic as a Black and White image.
This dramatic image was taken during a hike to Avalanche Lake in Glacier National Park. Although this is a very popular and crowded it is truly worth it as the views on the hike up to the lake are also very beautiful.
Flowing Waterfall Art
This is actually an unnamed waterfalls on the Boulder River trail that is near Darrington. Taken on St Patrick's Day this year (2017)
St Mary's Lake
St Mary's Lake is on the East side of Glacier National Park and this was a perfect spot to capture it with the clear, clear and calm water in the foreground.
Taken from Sunrise side of Mt Rainier.
