As we move deeper into spring and warmer, sunnier days, I reflect back on number of special trips over the winter to photograph some of the amazing landscapes of the Northwestern United States. As the old saying goes in landscape photography: “The best tool you have is your feet!” Many of the best photographic opportunities require cross country skiing and/or overnighting on the snow in order to get amazing images. In many cases unspoiled raw beauty, little touched by humans gives one a glimpse back into time before the current “Anthropocene Era”. Some of my favorites from this past winter were from National Parks: Crater Lake, Glacier, Mt. Rainier, Olympic and the North Cascades, all of which offer amazing, but distinctly different beauty. As the snow melts in the mountains, I look forward to the spring, If you happen to to be traveling along the Oregon Coast in May, stop by the Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita. I am curating a photography show there and will have a number of my photographs on display. In May and June I will also be teaching the first in a series of Photography Classes at the “Hoff”, so if you happen to reside in the area, and have interest in the class, use the “contact us” link on the webpage to send me a message and I will provide more details!
