This was a beautiful little waterfall right off the side of the highway in Washington State.

I am always a fan of a cool sign and this one is definitely a cool sign. In Winthrop, Washington.

This is Farmers State Bank and the Old Schoolhouse Brewery in Winthrop, Washington. The bank was as cool inside as out.

Winthrop General Store

If you’ve ever seen the movie Big Fish (one of my favorites), there’s a scene where the main character walks into a strange, Utopian town called Spectre. That is how I felt when I drove into Winthrop, Washington. It was nice, clean, the people were super friendly and it felt both authentic and made up at the same time. I took a lot of photos there and I will be back. A very cool place.

Down Range in the North Cascades

This was looking down from the high points on the highway running through North Cascades National Park in Washington.

Smoke in the North Cascades

The fires sure were bad this summer in the Northwest. It made it difficult to shoot, but it was also kind of cool in a way. This is in North Cascades National Park in Washington State.

The North Cascades

Hey everyone! Sorry for my unannounced absence from the blogosphere. I was busy finishing my tour season and heading home for a bit. Then I took a vacation from my computer for a while and then started working on some other projects to be unveiled in the next few weeks. But I’m back to editing photos and have some great ones from late summer to share. Hope you’re all well out there.

This is from the smoky but beautiful North Cascades in Washington State. It’s one of my favorites from the last few months!

Cherry Blossoms

Well, the cherry blossoms got hit hard this year, but a few hung on for this photo of the Jefferson Memorial here in Washington D.C.

D.C. Boundary Stones

I’ve been out tracking down the Boundary Stones from the original surveying of Washington D.C. back in the 1790s. It is fun, almost like a scavenger hunt. I’ve found them in parking lots, city parks and just on the side of the road, hidden in plain view. This one is in someone’s front yard in Alexandria, Virginia. Cool to have such a piece of history in your yard.

The U.S. Capitol

The Capitol Building looks so nice now that the scaffolding is down. The multi-year repair of the dome is done, and it looks spectacular. Obviously in Washington D.C.
