Best Photos of the Month October 2016

Didn’t really have much as I was limited to what I could do due to surgery. The whole month of October I was limited to 10 pounds. Still I shot a few football games, a breaking news story, and some of my own projects. Enjoy my Photo of the Month of October.

With the Lynden Lions leading the Black Hills Wolves 17 to 14 at the end of the third quarter, I had to leave as my afternoon deadline for The Bellingham Herald was looming. As Lynden was playing well, I did not want to leave.

My Best Photos of Aug. and Sept. of 2016.

This is a super late post as I’ve been recuperating from a hernia surgery. Nothing worse than getting one and your doctor telling you not to carry more than 10 pounds. That’s pretty much one of my bodies and my 70-200.  Sucks. These are my favorite photos from August and September 2016.

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.
