I took this a few hours ago. I know the Cedar Waxwing isnít a particularly rare bird, but this was only the third time I'd seen it, and the first time that I also had my camera with me. I think this is a gorgeous bird, so I was a bit disappointed that I couldn't get a totally clear shot before it flew off.

I will be eyeing the opportunities for getting some dynamic weather along the WA and OR coasts as well as the potential for skiing in the mountains. I love hiking and photographing along the Pacific in wintry weather. This is from an early spring trip to OR this year - along the shore on the south side of Cape Perpetua where there are some really nice surge channels like this. It's a fun state park for moderate hiking and shooting.

They are wonderfully decorous birds. I see them on occasion at Magnuson Park in Seattle, but not in such a nice setting.

Went to Twanoh State Park today to take some Twanoh Creek pictures and discovered that salmon were heading up stream. Salmon had made it about a quarter of a mile upstream from the canal to where water wasnít deep enough to swim.

Here's a shot from early November 2018 near the Virgin River in Zion's main valley. I really enjoyed wandering around there in the morning while the sun was being reflected off the north wall of the canyon onto the shaded terrain around me - it's really special light and at this time of year it lasts for a good while. I just revisited this shot because I had trouble processing it in such a way as to get the color and tones to match what my mind recalls from the scene - this finally gets close to that "mind's eye" image.

Here's another shot from the other side of the valley in the afternoon, when the light is on the other wall...

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

Another belated edit from my 2018 Utah trip, this one also from Zion, along the trail up to Observation point (the trail I hiked out of the main valley on this hike is currently closed due to rockfall btw). I enjoyed this hike much more than the wildly popular hike up to Angel's Landing - more varied, great views, less people. I think I made it back to the trailhead just in time to catch the second-to-last shuttle of the day after spending much time in the morning taking pictures down in the valley and then again in the afternoon up high on this hike doing the same.

In the desert where I've not been in a few years, now, that is my favorite kind of lighting because it is so rich and warm from the sun on opposite walls. Eliot Porter did a great deal of that photography in his book, "Glen Canyon the Place No One Knew". Porter called that canyon lighting. His photography was the artistic inspiration on my first trips to canyon country in the early 90's. https://catalogue.swanngalleries.com/Lots/auction-lot/ELIOT-PORTER-%281901-1990%29-Portfolio-entitled-Glen-Canyon?saleno=2536&lotNo=213&refNo=770329
