Sunrise at Little Redfish Lake, Sawtooth Mountains Idaho #56183
I’m very excited to announce all the images from my recent Idaho trip have been edited and processed! This was a very successful trip despite having planned it at the last minute. The main focus were the beautiful Sawtooth Mountains in central Idaho near the town of Stanley. Here I was fortunate enough to arrive in time for the annual blooming of camas and other wildflowers and enjoy photographing them in several mornings and evenings of fabulous light. Also included on this trip was Shoshone Falls on the Snake River Plain, Bruneau Canyon and Owyhee River Canyon, the later being just over the border in Oregon.
Please take a few minutes to browse through the new images portfolio, there is lots to see! If you’d like to view even more check out the Idaho Gallery, here there are over 500 images, all of which can be purchased as fine art prints or licensed for commercial use.
Stay tuned to this blog as I will be posting images and stories from this trip soon, and don’t forget to use the share buttons to forward to your friends and colleagues! Thanks for looking!

Idaho Trip Newfoundland Cancellation
Well I’m finally back from being on the road for several weeks. No, this image is not from Newfoundland as I had originally planned, it was made in the Owyhee Desert just across the border from Idaho. The Sawtooth Mountains and Snake River Plain of Idaho were my main destinations on this trip.
My much planned and long anticipated trip to Newfoundland was cancelled at literally the last minute. As I attempted to check in at Sea-Tac airport for my flight I suddenly realized that my passport had expired in March, to enter Canada you either need an enhanced drivers license or a passport, I had no choice at that point but to board the shuttle back home to Bellingham. Although I was tremendously disappointed and felt very foolish and humiliated ( I had previously announced my plans to all my clients) I’m sure it was for the best in the end. I always feel that if something like this happens it happens for a good reason and in the end I probably wasn’t meant to go.
Two days later I shrugged off my disappointment and was packing my truck for Idaho. For all the years I’ve been photographing Idaho has been a state I mostly passed through on the way to Montana, Utah or Wyoming. This seemed like a great opportunity to make amends and photograph some long neglected areas. Maybe this was the place I was really meant to visit since I arrived at the height of wildflower season in the mountain valleys. My trip also coincided with a series of rain and thunderstorms which provided some excellent light from time to time. Here are a few samples of what I came back with. I’ll be posting more soon!
