Just a quick post. As most of the world knows, the peak for the annual Perseid Meteor Shower was this morning August 12, 2016. Many said it was a fantastic show. It was nice, but I wouldn’t say it was one of the best I saw.
And the performers were enlightening!!! Fire performance artists entertained over 200 people during the evening of July 17th. As the Sun set, spectators flowed from the trail to the beach inundating a normally quiet park.
Locust Beach is the one park I like to go to that is close to town, but not well visited. There’s limited parking and a good 1/4 to 1/2 mile hike down to the beach. It’s rocky with no facilities. But super nice to get away from it all within town.
Here are two photos of the same subject but with different light and I’d like to ask which one is your favorite, and why. Please vote in the poll then post your reasoning in the comment section.
A few weeks ago I went out to shoot the last sunset of the year. I headed to one of my favorite places to shoot. The sky was clear, the air crisp and cold, the views were fantastic. Plus, with the cold air, the visibility was astonishing.
From Boulevard Park in Bellingham, Wash., you could see Mt. Robie Reid in British Columbia. The added bonus was the beautiful light cast upon it by the setting Sun

As a thank you to all my friends, family, and especially my followers, over the next few weeks, I’ll be adding more downloadable photos for you to use for their computer desktop backgrounds. These will be mainly landscapes and scenics. Here are a few samples I have available to download.
Also, I’ll be adding a calendar to one of the photos if you prefer to have easy access to a calendar.
My Best Photos from November 2015 of Course!!!!
Busy month again. Sports and feature assignments for The Bellingham Herald and Whatcom Magazine, plus a few of my own found features. Enjoy!!
Squalicum Harbor Sunset
During an evening driving around Bellingham, I went to Squalicum Harbor as I liked how the masts of the boats stood against the darker sky. But as I was shooting, the clouds cleared and the setting Sun lit the clouds over the Cascade Mountains on fire. I got about a foot above the water to shoot this.
I was lucky the local clouds cleared.
