San Juan Islands – Whales

The San Juan Islands consist of a string of islands (over 100) located in the northwest corner  between the mainland U.S. and Vancouver, B.C.  We stayed in the town of Friday Harbor, the big tourist spot on the island of San Juan. From there for three days we went out on the nearby waters, including the Strait of Georgia, to photograph Orcas and Humpback Whales, Seals,  Porpoises and Eagles. We also spent a few hours at the San Juan Island National Historic Park where we photographed Foxes.

This is the first in a series of photographs I will be posting. Enjoy.

Bald Eagles Along the Skagit River

The Skagit Valley, particularly the Skagit River, is known at this time of the year to be a haven for Bald Eagles.  It’s located in the northwestern part of Washington State. About half of the time on our recent trip was spent on the Skagit River photographing eagles, and the other half on land photographing swans, snow geese, and a bit of landscape. Although the weather was cold and rainy, the experience yielded some exciting photos making the colds, both my wife and I now endure, worth it. Below are some photographs.

Visions of the Palouse

The Palouse, about 70 miles south of Spokane, Washington is a majestic region especially during the harvest season. Sometimes called the Tuscany of America, there are patterns, designs and strong lines creating a visual palette of colors. Below are a few of the photos I have processed so far. All are available for purchase by clicking here.

Humpback Whale Taking the Big Dive

Humpback whales are beautiful, graceful and  majestic mammals ranging 40 to 60 feet in length, weighting as much as 44 tons. We were fortunate to catch a couple of Humpbacks on a recent trip to Boothbay Harbor in Maine.
