Spring in the Northwest

Maple and Lake Crescent, Washington
It's almost here. Of all the seasons, spring is the most showy here in the Pacific Northwest, when everything explodes with green. It is the annual reward for suffering through the gloom of winter - and this year has been particularly gloomy!

I always plan at least one or two local trips every year in May and June, returning to some of my favorite haunts: the Olympic coast, the rainforest, and the eastern slope of the Cascade Mountains.

In fact, I list my favorite spring destinations in the May issue of OUTDOOR PHOTOGRAPHER magazine.  Have a look here.  

Nikon D3, 24-70mm lens


  1. lovely perspective and colors.
    loved the article in outdoor photographer, especially the stunning images.

  2. Wow, that's stunning. Amazing colours. Do we live in the same North West? ;-)

  3. Yup - you should go out to Lake Crescent sometime this spring: amazing color. But you need a rare windless day - and o yeah, a polarizer...:)

  4. Have polarizer, will travel! :-)
