    Trip to the Canyonlands

    My husband and I just created our ultimate travel-the-world vehicle. "Livingstone" is a 4WD Ford 550 diesel with 100 gallon tank, a pop-up camper with water filtration system and 100 gallon storage tank, and a "garage" for our motorcycle and bikes. We tried it out a few weeks along the White Rim...

    Washtucna is dying

    Washtucna's off of SR 26 in Eastern Washington between Othello and Pullman. Other than the bar, the coffee shop-snack bar-quickie mart-antique shop-gas station on the corner by the highway is the happening place. The Washington State Patrol keeps busy there as well. They love to catch speeders...

    A rare sighting...

    Great shot and thanks for explaining your technique. (I have a flash, but am still "flash challenged"). Did you have to carry 2 tripods? One for the camera as well as one for the flash?

    early autumn on the farm

    That red barn really pops agaist the golds and greens in that light. I look forward to seeing it against the fall foliage.

    Hiking the Skyline Trail, Mount Rainier.

    Your photos are making me want to get back up there! Any chance that there'll still be photo ops in 3 weeks? That's the soonest I can make it.

    heron posing

    Beautiful shots! I really like how the shallow depth of field sets him off. That was very cooperative of him to pose so nicely in just the right light for you.
