Sunset from Blanchard Mountain
Skagit County, Washington

December 30, 2013

The sky was filled with quickly moving clouds and as the sun was dropping lower and lower in the sky toward sunset it would periodically break through various openings and bathe the water and islands below me in glorious light and shadow.

The water in the lower part of the frame is Samish Bay, then moving upward the first island is Samish Island, then Padilla Bay, then Fidalgo Island (and the city of Anacortes). Continuing upward you can see the Olympic Mountains.

I began shooting in 1980 and switched to digital in 2006, which is when my skills really took off. I shoot primarily landscapes and wildlife, with the occasional sporting event. Being situated in the Pacific Northwest I have access to some of the most spectacular scenery on earth within a day’s drive of my home.
