The Pacific Northwest with its grand landscapes such as the rain forests, mountainous North Cascades, or the desert in the Eastern part of the state never cease to amaze! Nothing about the area is less than stellar in beauty. The wildlife that call the Northwest their home are diverse as the hills and valleys that make up this incredible region.
Winter brings with it just as much beauty as the more colorful summer months. If one is not adverse to the often times bitter cold and is willing to brave the elements in search of a magical shot, then they will most certainly find something to point their camera at.
Below are some moments I have experienced so far this season, some not far from the front door. Others…well yes, I had to put some miles in for those. 🙂 Enjoy!
