This is the view on the lower part of a Colorado River rafting trip, below Whitmore Wash, where some trips get helicoptered out. We continued to Diamond Creek and a bus picked us up. Here's a color version next to a black and white just for fun.

Here's a very different view of the Grand Canyon, showing how much greener it is at the top on the North Rim vs the South Rim. We camped out here, and as soon as it became light  the next morning, I went to the edge to capture first light on the landscape.

At Whitmore Wash in the Grand Canyon, the walls are lower and less colorful. This is where some rafting companies helicopter customers out and their trip down the Colorado is over. Others continue on, camp out another night, and take out at Diamond Creek. This photo is looking upriver.

Anyone been rafting down the Colorado? Feeling very lucky to have captured the thrill of sunlight colors on Canyon walls reflected on water. My dream is to take a designated photo trip here one day.

Picture yourself walking down this trail in a lush green redwood forest. I was there yesterday! The feeling is indescribable and like being in no other natural setting. The forest softens sounds in a way like snow does.

I love it when sunsets go on forever and I can get tons of pictures of it. This was taken on San Juan Island in June, looking across at Vancouver Island πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦#sanjuanislands #icanseecanada #staypnw #washingtonstate #limekilnpoint #westernnature #cascadia #pnwexplored #cloudscape #cloudsky #eveningsky #igsunset #naturegram #reflectionsinwater #cloudstagram #waterscapes #worldprime #keepitwild #landscapelover
Rainbows have the power to lift the spirits, if only a little bit. Feeling lots of stuff. San Juan Island, Washington ~ June 2017.

A juicy orange Canyon wall in late afternoon light to start the week. From August in Grand Canyon National Park. My happy place.

The Colorado River in the lower Grand Canyon; another photo from earlier this year, in August. I chose monotone to compliment the stormy sky. I love a good southwestern storm!

One of the most scenic byways in the state is the Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway through Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park. It's 10 miles long with pull-outs, trailheads, and of course the iconic old growth redwoods.

I call this bridge the Gateway to the Prairie Creek Trail, one of my happy places at Prairie Creek State Park, California. After many smoky days, it rained and cleared the air!

Canyon morning colors! From my recent trip down the Colorado. There's nowhere else like it! I took my DSLR in a Pelican case and it worked great. Also had my iPhone in a waterproof case to use as a camera.

Insomniac experiment with double exposure, cooling down hot ashy fiery skies with cold Colorado River water. What sorcery is this? Will it work?
