Rocky Hill Barn, Liberty Lake, Washington

One of the most historic structures in Liberty Lake is the Rocky Hill Barn.
Once a productive 310 acre wheat farm, 
this photogenic building has been preserved as part of the Rocky Hill Park Project. 
Built in 1948, on an old farmstead the 1,290 square foot barn has a hayloft above four stalls with windows that looked out upon a small pasture.
The interior boasts beautiful aged wood…
looking up at the roof, I grabbed a couple quick “high iso” shots of the incredible detail.

Captured in 2014 on the Sony a7, FE 28-70mm

Ice Skating on Liberty Lake, Washington

"The best camera is the one that's with you." – Chase Jarvis. 

Carry a Camera everywhere, I made the commitment!

My "journalistic spirit" inspired it…

"The best camera is the one that's with you." – Chase Jarvis. 
Carry a Camera everywhere, I made the commitment!
My "journalistic spirit" inspired it…
back in the film days I carried the grande Nikon F3 with 80-200 glass in a "fanny pack" everywhere I went!
A couple of weeks ago I slipped on that commitment.
Taking the dog out on a quick run, 
I was caught with only my iPhone in hand.
Amazing how it comes through!
It's been an incredible year for skating,
sunshine & blue skies. 
Great conditions!

Beer on the Fly, Liberty Lake, Washington

I learned long ago that it’s good karma to open up a beer & set it on the dock as you start casting…
Don’t let anyone tell you different, the fish can smell that malty amber & rise every time!

Mule’s Ears Everywhere!

Throughout the Western US brilliant yellow Wyethia flowers add their color to the forest! 
Members of the Sunflower Family, they seem almost drought proof along a dusty trail 
as they continue to bloom waiting for rain…

Sunset Thunderstorm, Dreamwood Bay, Liberty Lake, Washington

Perfect timing… a Summer thunderstorm breaks up at sunset.
Look closely, there’s a misty October fog on the lake!
Once you master the smooth sweeping motion, colorful panoramas on the iPhone can be taken in incredibly low light.
Facing NNE, Greenridge & Mount Spokane in the distance.

Gonzaga's Kennel Club

March Madness

It’s Selection Sunday… the wonderful surprise of March Madness!
Who do the Zags get to play??
The Kennel is one of my favorite places to shoot… incredible energy from the students!
In this shot, every cheering face of the Gonzaga University Kennel Club holds that level of excitement.

How do you like them Apples?

Apple Harvest in Washington starts with the Galas in mid August & extends through the Cripps Pinks in early November.
The colorful Apple orchards that dot the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains make for fantastic photography…
I can’t resist an open apple crate, the attempt organize infinite fruit shapes always yields such exciting patterns!  
How many varieties can you name?
Red Delicious, Gala, Fuji, Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Honeycrisp & Braeburn.

Captured May 1999 on Kodachrome 25, Nikon F3, Nikkor 50mm 1.4
