Choosing images for the 2016 Washington Scenic Calendar

September is here, soon autumn will be with us. This is my signal to start work on the 2016 Calendar.

My task is to sort through the years images and somehow come up with 13 stunning shots.

As I review the files there are a few special shots which will almost certainly be included in this next years calendar and in other cases I have a series of shots from a particular spot and need help choosing which is the best one for the calendar. This is where you come in, I will post a grouping of images from a specific spot. Please vote for your favorite in each section by making a comment below or emailing me at:

Park Butte Lookout

Ferry Boat

Point of the Arches


Lake Ann

Sahale Arm

Stars and Tent shot


Here are a few images that have already made the final cut:

    Thanks for sharing your photos – they are spectacular, and let us enjoy the Northwest even though we have moved away. My husband grew up in Diablo, and we live in Northern California now.

  6. Love your photos, here are my picks – it was really hard this year
    Park Butte 4

    Arches 1 & 2 include both πŸ™‚
    Barn 1
    Lake Ann 4

    I don’t know how you get it down to just these few to start with, good like with all our various choices.

  7. Hi Andy, I don’t envy you the job as your work is smashing! But if I had to choose, here goes:

    Park Butte: 1, 2, 4, 5, #5 cover; Point of Arches: 1, 2, 4, 5, #2 cover;
    Lake Ann: 3 but crop more off the bottom, 4;
    Stars Tent: 1, 6, either for cover;
    Enchantments: 2, 6.
    Made the cut: hmm…?!

    Good luck!
