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.

A few photos of Bellingham and Mount Baker as the setting Sun cast a pink hue over Bellingham Bay a few weeks ago. I didn’t expect the clouds to break and the sky to light up.
