Week 4 of 52: Snoqualmie Falls



For week 4 I take you back to the Snoqualmie area to one of the best known waterfalls in Washington....Snoqualmie Falls. Snoqualmie Falls is located just 30 minutes east of Seattle. It is amazing to watch and listen to the roar of whitewater tumble over granite cliffs nearly 300 feet into the river canyon below. You can view the falls from above or venture on a short hike to view them from the below. The falls are accessible any time of year and the lighting can be very dramatic depending on the time of day you visit.

Week 3 of 52 - Mt Rainier

















One of my favorite destinations to photograph is Mt Rainier National Park. There are soooo many locations and things to shoot....I have a annual pass....every year....and I still never get all the shots I want to take! Whether you like shooting Rainier itself, lakes, waterfalls, wildlife, it has it all. This week is dedicated to the main attraction...Mt. Rainier...

Week 2 of 52 - Deception Pass




Ok...so for my second post I compiled pictures from various areas around Deception Pass. I have included a photo I just took 1/9/2010 and a couple from other visits to the area.
There are plenty of sites to see at a 4100+ acre state park with more than 19 miles of shoreline to
explore. There are several places to
view the Deception Pass bridge and breathtaking views from both sides of it. On a clear day from the east side of the bridge views of Mt Baker are seen and from the west side of the bridge views of islands and the Olympic Mtns.

Project 52: Week 1 of 52 - Gold Creek


Ok....This is my first try at blogging and my first time to commit to something, other than work or family, for every week of the year...I welcome Project 52.

Project 52 for me will be posting pictures from the great state of Washington...I feel one of the most under-rated places for photography. Hopefully by the end of the year, I will have transformed your opinion of this....and not only feel the need, but compelled to come visit this wonderful place. I am so blessed to have lived here my entire life and want to share it with everyone...as I see it....through my lens.

Enjoy!

Ok...so I am new to this! I should have also shared that Gold Creek is located about an hour east of Seattle (up I-90 for you locals...) at Snoqualmie Pass. It has plenty of trails to hike in the Spring-Fall seasons and great areas for snow shoeing or cross country skiing in the winter. It's also great for beginners in any season since the terrain is fairly level.
