Just finished up another fantastic workshop in Washington’s Palouse. Thanks to everyone for making this year such a great trip! As always the Palouse is amazing and the diversity year to year in crops always delivers a new experience exploring the landscapes. This year was looking great around the region, wonderful hues of greens and yellows with the occasional red barn thrown in. I’m really looking forward to getting back and if my schedule allows may head over for harvest this year. I now have the 2019 Palouse workshop listed with limited space available.
Going back through my archives this week and thought I would share another from Glacier. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been to St. Mary Falls, as it’s one of my main stops on my photography workshops and it’s also one of the easiest falls to get to, but I never tire of photographing this one. The fun challenge when photographing any scene over and over is seeing how you can make it different from the previous by either varying composition or including different elements. This falls is a good one to shoot at sunset as you can get a bit of the setting sun there and it seems to lend itself to many interesting compositions.
Looking forward to visiting again soon here on my July workshop!

Just returned from a week out in Olympic National Park. Certainly one of my favorite locations to shoot on the coast and one that has endless possibilities. This image is of Madison Falls, located in the beautiful Elwha Valley. I will have some more images to post soon.

Out on the coast this week in Olympic National Park. These are a couple shots from yesterday along Hurricane Ridge and down lower in the Elwha Valley. Not a bad time of year to be out here with warm weather and lot’s of sunshine, not to mention the as always stellar rainforest!

Just got back from a quick trip up to the Seeley Lake area and it’s looking awesome up there. Of course I did a little paddling while I was up there and explored around Seeley Lake and the Clearwater River area. Tons of wildlife out and of course I left my long lens at home. I should know by now that I should just expect to see killer wildlife shots if I continue doing that.
However I was paddling, so decided to pack light. Still it was great to be out for some R&R this weekend.

Also took a beautiful hike over to Morrell Falls and man is there a ton of water coming down right now. Also was devoured by some seriously mean mosquitos as well. They were out in full force up there this weekend and just brutal.

Beargrass is also out in force. Looking just magical and I think it’s going to be a banner year in the area.
That’s all for now. Will have some more stuff coming next weekend.

Was out this last weekend conducting a photography workshop up on the Rocky Mountain Front. Summer is definitely here and the scenery up there is awesome. Arrow-Leaved Balsamroots are out in full force and the landscape is plenty green. The creeks are running good but not too high and both the waterfalls we made it to, Cataract Falls and Double Falls were looking good.

During our workshop we were discussing how this paticular area of Montana sees little in the way of visitation compared to other parts of the state such as the National Parks and other popular destinations, yet it contains some of the richest wildlife and landscape around.
If you haven’t been up and around the Rocky Mountain Front, it’s definitely worth putting on your list for upcoming places to see.
