Mt. Adams

I pulled over on the side of the road when I was heading to Mt. Saint Helens. The sky and the sight was surreal as I got nothing quite like it back at home.

Snoqualmie Falls

Snoqualmie Falls is a popular tourist attraction, that’s for sure. Plenty of people were out there just to drop their eyes on it. Noticeable from the show Twin Peaks, it was only about 30 minutes from Seattle and there were a few stands along the road to with Rainier cherries. I regret not stopping and grabbing some.

Saint Helens

Traveling with some black and white film gives me a different perspective then shooting digital color. The landscapes out west sometimes just look great at angles in black and white and detail and shadows just get drawn out more. The volcano was a lot taller but a lot of its top is gone since the eruption. Closer to the volcano you can see the difference in the landscape, no more tall trees but small plants and pumice stone areas.
