John Clement Day II




John Clement Day is June 7...not a national holiday but it's meaningful to me.  It was the day in 2011 I went on my first day trip to the Blue Mountains and beyond with John Clement.  He showed me the most beautiful places to photograph and gave me inspiration to continue driving the back roads of Washington, Oregon, Montana and Idaho looking for more.
 This year, 7 years later, we made another trip down some roads that were new to me in Eastern Washington.  We started out at 4am and caught the first light after a rain storm near Waitsburg, WA.  John has an amazing sense of where to be and when to get there to photograph the most amazing light.  It feels magical to me.






John was hoping to find purple vetch covering the hills along the way.  And it was there.

Spring 2018




Spring has sprung once again and lured me outdoors to take pictures of the wonderful new life.  I'm so attracted to the blossoms on my little crab apple tree and the lupine I find here and there along the road.  This year I happened to notice the flowers on my friend's Dogwood tree and photographed them...such amazing blossoms.








                          The landscapes here were taken in the Palouse area of Washington State.
