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!

    I like the colour of his dry coat and the raised head too.

  • Thank you Stephen! I really struggle at times with wildlife. They just won’t sit still and let me work…. This guy was a bit curious about me but not alarmed and I was able to get er done. I really appreciate your taking time to comment!
