In mid-March, trees around the Seattle area started blooming, including the cherry trees. Although I find the pink flowers beautiful, my eye was more attracted to the contrasts of textures and tones of the black trunks and bright blossoms.

We got a few days of sunshine in the Seattle area in January, so I decided to head out to Rattlesnake Lake near North Bend to hike and take a few photographs. Around sunset, I shot a few bulb exposures of tree stumps rising out of the lake.

After moving to the Seattle area from southern Arizona last summer, I took a weekend walk up to Franklin Falls to photograph the South fork of the Snoqualmie River as it cascades over a 70-foot cliff. Large falls are always a treat after living in the desert.

In September, I took a trip out to Olympic National Park and spent a day near Mora and Rialto Beach. Late summer rains blew in and cleared out the smoke from forest fires, leaving low-hanging fog over sea stacks along the coast.
