Grey_Whale_Coming_Into_the_Bay
A friend and I went to Newport to photograph the just fledged peregrine falcons. They weren't doing much so we went out to the lighthouse and watched as a grey whale swam into the small bay between the lighthouse and murre rock. It must have stayed there swimming around and feeding for 45 minutes. I took about 400 shots! What a thrill to watch one so close. At times he was too close even for the 150mm end of my zoom! Peak experience for me.

We drove back to Portland on the WA side of the Columbia and stopped at Stonehenge

No Trespassing
A friend and I went to the Palouse in eastern Washington for a photo trip. She came from Chicago to OR for a niece's graduation which go her in the PNW before the canola fields bloomed with their bright yellow adding contrast to the rolling green hills. But we had wonderful cloud patterns and I decided to experiment more with black and white

I loved the leading lines and colors against the snow and dark sky
