It would be great to say that there was some very important and quite interesting reason for not posting here for some time. Alas, but there isn’t. Here is me trying to not beat my previous record of over one year’s time between posts.

We have all heard it said many time over that “life is an adventure”. As a father of a two year old, I couldn’t agree more. Life each day with my daughter is a new experience, of which not all are planned, expected or ideal,  but certainly all of which are adventuresome! The photos below are not of my family’s journey through this life called adventure, but of a different kind that I took while on a weekend getaway excursion with a few guys on the Olympic Peninsula. Our location, for most of the weekend was Cape Alava, which is one part of the Lake Ozette Triangle. Due to weather conditions that weekend, we ended up not doing the triangle in its entirety. Nonetheless, the weekend was filled with hiking and exploration up and down the coastline.

Smoke Teasers

So, this isn’t a true post but more of a teaser of a lot of images to come. Out of all the posts I have put up over the last few years, the one post that gets the best SEO ratings is my post from April of 2009 that included some smoke desktop images I put together. Now, here we are in 2012 and I am returning to smoke and posting a few “teaser” images from what I shot a few days ago. More to come, I promise. DISCLAIMER: there are minimally edited with some basic exposure adjustments and a little color tweaks.

In October, I spent time with some family friends at the park. Carter and Julia, the kids pictured below, are two individuals with more unique personality, energy and love than most kids I have encountered! These photos only reflect a small part of them. These images were taken at Juanita Bay Park, a great place to go just about any time of year.
