You Have the Power!

I have some of the most interesting “row partners” when I fly. This last trip home I had an aisle seat. I was prepared to get up to let the person take the window seat next to me, but I wasn’t prepared for what was coming! She walks in and the first thing I see is three carry-ons which instantly sends up warning signals in my mind.

The Palouse Spring Adventure

We were up in WA last fall and really smitten by The Palouse! I’m not sure why it’s taken us this long to get here but I love it! We are goin back up to photograph it when’s its green so we’re offering a trip for 6 folks 23-28 April (in 23rd & out the 28th out of Spokane) and had a space open up. This is simply an amazing place and the possibilities seem endless. We’ve already been to places you don’t see in print which is really spinning my imagination. The price is $1895 which covers transport once on location, guiding, instruction and entertainment. Oh yeah, a bit of education, as well as this, is a bit of a new world of landscape photography. This is a long landscape shoot just as much as pano which makes it such a photographic delight. If you’re interested, give Sharon a call...
