My current display in the gallery consists of a mix of local scenes (Coupeville, Oak Harbor, Deception Pass) and scenes from a recent RV trip my wife and I took. We were on the road for two months exploring the American West as far as the Mississippi River and Great Lakes. Along the way we had no real destination in mind, instead following our inspiration and stopping to visit many National and State Parks along the way. This style of travel is very freeing - no deadlines, no rush to get to any particular destination. Our motto in our little RV is “We’re already there.” This allows plenty of time for me to practice my craft - I can wait for the best light in a given location instead of just taking a quick snapshot and hurrying on. I’ve always thought it would be wonderful to spend a year in certain National Parks, capturing the essence of the location in all seasons of the year.
But enough background - let’s take a look at some of the images I currently have on display in the gallery and I’ll tell you the story behind each of them.
