Landscapes for me generally just happen, there are some that are subject related some are just vast sweeping vistas. I don't have a theme around these and not sure I ever will if I'm being honest.

Out for a morning walk trying to get some exercise I took the digital with me and snapped this as the sun was coming up. This is an image I'd definately like to make with the large format for sure.

Mountains, ships, boats, buildings behind the ship. A sense of perspective.

This was quite the experience. The wife, dog and I jumped in my old blazer and headed for a day trip around Mt. Rainier for our wedding anniversary and it was a great time. On the way back, back on I5 the blazer started sputtering and steaming. I managed to get it off the road and it wasn't too long before a support vehicle showed up and they pushed us of the road, up the exit and into a parking lot. Trying to figure out what to do and how to get home, there was a plumbing truck in the same parking lot and they had a piece of pvc pipe that fit the break in the water hose! A screw clamp later, and a gas station water fill in the radiator, and we were back on the road and made it home intact.

The lake is on the way to Mt. Rainier, the road comes to a T and the lake is directly in front of you. So I pulled off to the side and took a few pictures.
