New Images North Cascades Washington

I’ve just finished uploading a group of New Images made over the last four weeks, please check them out when you have a minute. All the images were made in various locations of the North Cascades, including North Cascades National Park, Mount Baker Wilderness, and Heather Meadows Recreation Area. These areas have been visited by me before, a few of them nearly a dozen times, but never have I had such success in timing with wildflower blooms and wonderful lighting conditions. There is still one more spot I need to revisit before the wildflowers fade for the season, that would be Heliotrope Ridge on the north flanks of Mount Baker. This is one of those rare areas where one can get an up close view of large glaciers and ramble among fields of wildflowers. My gear is already packed and I’ll be off in the morning!

What a great summer season for photography! Despite canceling my last trip in July to British Columbia due to wildfires I’ve been very busy adding lots of new images to my files. While waiting for the wildfire season to moderate up north in Canada I’ve returned to several of my favorite locations in the North Cascades, practically my back yard. Since this is the height of summer in the mountains I selected some sub-alpine locations where good displays of wildflowers and rugged vistas can be found, mainly in North Cascades National Park and the Mount Baker Wilderness. Late July and August is the driest time of the year in the Northwest with the most predictable weather. Sometimes though this means the weather can be a little too good with empty blue skies, great for general outdoors activities but no the greatest for photography. Fortunately my timing was spot on and on a few days I was treated to some fantastic lights shows both in the morning and evening.

There is much to talk about from these trips but for now I’ll just post some image highlights from the first few locations since I still have tons of editing and processing to do from them, not to mention my regular business tasks. I also have another summer trip planned to a very exciting new location that will put the brakes on any further posts for a few weeks. When more time is available I’ll go into more detail and update my Recent Images Portfolio. Stay tuned, and don’t forget that prints and commercial licensing are available for all of these photos!
