Spider Meadows, Glacier Peak Wilderness

Crystal Lake, Alpine Lakes Wilderness
Liberty Bell and the North Cascades Highway
In the Subway, Zion National Park, Utah
Stormy Skies at Maple Pass, North Cascades

These photos are so, so amazing. Around where are they take? Love them all!
They are all taken in Washington State. Several in Skagit County, which is about 60 miles north of Seattle, and several in the North Cascades.
Beautiful. Like them all, but I have to rank Padilla Bay as my favorite!
Wow, just wow…
These are amazing landscapes. Thank you. Maamoun Ismail
WOW! Simply exceptional!
Very good work you have here.
A great selection of photos. 😀
I love them all… that Skagit Valley one with the daisies is just spectacular!
Thanks, Anita! Yes, the daisies really make that shot.
As I went through these photos I was taking note of which ones I would comment on as my favourites but by the time I got to number 6 I realised I would have to comment on all of them. These are beautiful and I could not pick an outright favourite. I’m really looking forward to seeing more of your images Andy from 2014.
Thank you! How nice! Hope you like the last two installments!
Been away and only caught up tonight (15th) Great images throughout but the 1st post to me had more of what I like. And that’s always very subjective and personal so please don’t be offended by me saying that.
God, no, I am never offended! Its all subjective. And with photos, the photographer has the story/experience of getting there and being there to take the pictures, which totally effects how he/she views the shot…
We do get involved in the taking and making don’t we 🙂
Absolutely STUNNING! Can we still get your 2015 Calendar?
Yes! Here is the link with the info on how to order one…I am almost out! https://northwesternimages.wordpress.com/2014/10/14/washington-state-calendar-for-2015-now-for-sale/
A fine set a fine = a excellent year
Yes, that IS how I measure how “good” the year was, BTW!
Equally as impressive as part 2.
What wonderful photos !
Ancient Tombs of Banan
Four very light pebbles attached
to flung-sprung rubber band found
between new laid bricks, retrieved
by mound-viewing haze-gazer reminds
him of the day he gave up that for this.
Tall seeded grasses wave as a group
passes and a small bee buzzes with
interest. The man with no plan sees rice
on the land, chattel by cart, its grain
raked onto black plastic on the road.
Some is still standing, Van Gogh’s yellow
landing between green and smoldering
fields. Ggachis fly by, bales are stacked
high, a rooster lets loose surrounded by
mountains’ shapes feathered in as if Ross
took his two-incher and stroked Payne’s
gray in a jagged horizontal line between
white grading to blue atop, and the
harvester’s fog below. Set free again, he
sits looking at ancient burial homes
so rounded and soft, kept mown, who
knows how, in pairs that excite the
dream of the lonely tractor driver
who precisely gathers the rows. He
leaves tracks for spring’s women to sew.
Here comes a guard atop Folk Museum
to punch his post. He doesn’t look hard
or he’d see the forbidden beer that
mimics the color of one more field’s
cloud that floats by but still notices tears.
