Moody Clouds of Crescent Lake, Olympia, Washington

I drove up from Phoenix to Olympia National Park, to attend a 3-day photography seminar. I don’t usually go to photo seminars, but just to get out of Phoenix and get into some old growth forest with waterfalls and lakes and streams, was just the ticket to a long and hot Arizona summer. The trip turned into a 6,ooo mile trek to national parks all over the northwest, including Canada. But that’s another story.

I met a local, one of the teachers, who like myself was itchy to get out and do some more shooting. It was quite cloudy and the sun was setting with no drama to capture. So I said, let’s go down to the lake and just see what happens. The skies to the east were pretty dark, and out of no where they opened up for about 30 seconds. I hurried up and got off some shots, while my friend was still setting up. And that was the end of the light. It pays to be ready, or maybe just lucky.

Got any great ideas of places to travel to this year, let me know.

  1. My favorite part of this picture are the colors in the distance – like a promise of wonderful things to come – luring me in and asking me to make the journey.
