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!

    This is beautiful Dale! The sky and the water are almost mirror images of each other. Cool!

  • Howdy do Sheryl! Thanks:-) I like it when they kind of run together like that. I was out on a little slip and it was frosty and I was trying to be careful not to slip and go for a dip :-)
