The Padilla Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve is an area of 8,004 acres of estuary located in Skagit County near Bay View State Park, Washington USA. The abundance of wildlife nurtured here is simply incredible. Geese, ducks, herons, eagles, and swans just to name a few. The sound of their multitude of calls as dusk falls is truly moving.

Born and raised in the logging town of Snoqualmie, Washington (the logging days in Snoqualmie are mostly in the past now). I currently reside in Issaquah, Washington. My Canon Rebel 450D was a Christmas gift that has kept on giving me hours and hours of pleasure. I recently aquired a Canon 5D Mark II and I am now learning to use this awesome instument. I hope you enjoy these pictures half as much as I enjoyed capturing them!

  • Thanks Walela, this was one that I thought was ok when I took it. When I got home and saw how the clouds formed a frame for it I was jazzed. Sometimes it just pays to be lucky!
