Pateros

On Thursday the 17th of July the Carlton Complex fire crested the hills of Pateros, giving residents just 15 minutes to evacuate. 25+ homes in Pateros were lost that night and as of this post over 100 homes in Okanogan County have been lost in a fire that has burned over 230,000 acres. This is what was left of a friends home

Fire storm

July turned central Washington into a inferno with fires up the Entiat, Tumwater and Methow. This was taken on the evening of July 16th from the Eaglerock area of Wenatchee as smoke from the Mills Canyon fire combined with the Chiwakum fire

Sunset 7.10.14

This has to be one of my all-time favorite views. As you travel through Navarre Coulee this is the first glimpse of Lake Chelan to greet you. It lets me know I'm going to my happy place. This particular evening a fire at 25 Mile Creek addded a little extra color to the sky

Carnival

Another sign of spring in the Wenatchee Valley is the Washington State Apple Blossom Festival. The carnival is always a big draw and I had fun playing with some long exposures of the rides in action.

Leavenworth

I've wanted to get out to Leavenworth for some time to capture the lights but the lack of snow this season kept me from getting what I wanted. Finally it snowed on January 29th and I had the place to myself.

Tumwater

A real estate shoot involved being on the 'Castle' site at the mouth of the Tumwater Canyon. I also continued up Hwy 2 and took a little stroll over the red bridge and up the Wenatchee River to the end of the trail. 10/1/13
