Dear Ones,

Greetings and Salutations!  

Lately, I’ve been reviewing the archives for engaging images made before I got so seriously into photography. This photo, from an overnight hike on Skyline Divide in the Mount Baker Wilderness east of Bellingham, Washington, was taken in August 2012 with a Canon PowerShot point-and-shoot camera.

I recall wandering after we had set up camp, looking at the last sun lighting up Mount Shuksan. Kneeling on the ground allowed the flowering Valerian and Bistort to silhouette graphically against the iconic mountain. I love how the framing makes the flowers appear as giants. 

Thank you for taking in the view!

With Gratitude,
