Skagit Valley Tulips

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Hello all. Yes, it’s been awhile. Long story.

But this weekend we got to the Skagit Valley to see more tulips than you can imagine. Just beautiful. Here’s the first image.

And here are a couple from a bug’s eye view.

Peru – Lima

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Sometimes it happens. Your best plans are thwarted. We planned our trip to Peru for 10 months and eagerly looked forward to festivals in several small mountain villages and, of course, Machu Picchu. We hoped to take wonderful heart-stopping photographs. Instead I developed severe altitude sickness and things went downhill from there. After the first few days I felt rotten and we ended up having to come home early, missing the festivals and Machu Picchu. So my images of Peru are not what I expected. But here they are. The first few are from Lima (which is at sea level – I like sea level).

We were fascinated by paragliders jumping off a cliff right in the middle of the city. But I can’t decide which of the following two images I prefer.

Later we went to a fishing area in the city. Here are two images from that site. The pelicans were crazy.

Next up: Arequipa.

Hello all. An increasing barrage of span has forced me to turn the comments section off. I am so sorry but it was beginning to take a significant amount of time to sort through all the incoming garbage. I will continue to announce posts on Facebook and you will still be able to comment there. Thanks so much for your continued interest and understanding.

In Praise of Printing

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

Yes, yes, I know it’s been awhile. I have been immersed in a new project – fine art printing. The adventure started last year when I took a workshop with Mac Holbert, co-founder of Nash Editions (yes, that Graham Nash). Nash Editions may be the single best digital fine art print shop in the world. But whether it is or is not the absolute best, Mac knows more about digital fine art printing than I even imagined possible and I learned a huge amount about how to use lightroom and photoshop to take a good photograph and make it the best print it can be.
