Happy Monday, all!  Once again, we’ve survived another week.  But I’m feeling good (cue driving guitar hits by Muse (my favorite version)).  The weather in the Pacific Northwest has been simply superb for autumn photographing (look for a post on that later this week); the rains haven’t quite settled in yet.  So we’ve been able to get outside and enjoy it in full.  I love this time of year.

Biweekly Wow: Mt. Adams in Fall

Guess what, folks??  It’s autumn!  Have I mentioned before that this is my favorite season?  I love the colors and the coolness in the air, the smells and the squash.  Of course, this is the prime time to get outside for some hikes in the gorgeous weather and to let loose the shutter to capture all of the fiery beauty of nature.  It was the promise of this very season that guided our decision to visit Japan in the fall.  Tokyo was a bit early (at the beginning of November), but we were just in time in Kyoto!

Biweekly Wow: Pacific Northwest Sunset

I only have one more post planned for Norway, but I’m taking a break this week to share something a bit closer to home.  We went backpacking this summer in the spectacularly beautiful Olympic National Park, one of our closest national parks.  (Fun fact: from Portland, Olympic National Park and Crater Lake National Park are almost exactly equidistant (ONP is barely closer – by a mile).  Mount Rainier National Park is closer than both of them.. but we’ve surprisingly never been!)  Ever since my epic adventure to Alaska last year, I’ve really taken a liking to backpacking, though I still haven’t quite figured out how to bring my bag weight down with all my imperative camera gear!

This particular sunset has a story behind it (don’t most photos?).
