Traveling through the Pacific Northwest I experienced long periods of socked in weather with a fleeting moment of brilliant perfect light. It required patience at a whole new level to stay at a great spot and wait for the right light. I really like to move on if the weather gets bad so I struggled a bit making myself wait out the weather. The above photo is from 2nd beach in Olympic National Park. This sunset was one of the best on my trip as the storm was clearing.

While on the San Juan Islands I was really impressed with the wildness on the interior of the islands which I did not expect. The great state parks and small mountains were a welcome reprieve to stretch my legs and get away from the sea kayak for a bit. The photo above is Cascade falls on Orcas island. I have many versions of this waterfall but I really like this shot which is just the very upper part of the falls. The moss covered logs are well lit and give a good sense of what this area is like. I think most people would probably prefer the grand scenic of the entire falls but for some reason this one seems to speak to me.

I returned from my trip a few days ago and have slowly been processing my images. My laptop broke early on in the trip so I was unable to do much posting or work on the road. The Pacific Northwest was amazing with the highlight for me being the San Juan Islands. I’m in the process of adding images from the trip to my website and will post some more on this blog as I go. The above image is Palouse Falls in eastern Washington. This is an amazing waterfall that lies in the high desert and was really flowing when I was there.
