Seattle with Mt. Rainier

The view of Downtown Seattle with the majestic Mt. Rainier in the background is stunning from Kerry Park.

The Beauty of Mount Rainier

Mount Rainier is mostly hidden in Seattle's stormy skies, but when it does come out, it's majestic and awe inspiring. In my travels to Seattle, it wasn't til the last day of my trip at sunset that I caught this behemoth Washington State icon.

Wallace Middle Falls

Went for an amazing hike at the Wallace Falls State Park near Seattle, WA. This is the Middle Falls. It was my favorite of the three. This is a great hike...not too difficult, but lots of lush greens, that Pacific Northwest dew-mist air, and running water with gorgeous waterfalls. I highly recommend it!

Sunrise at Lake Louise

Lake Louise is in the heart of Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada - and sunrises there can be magical over that turquoise blue, crystal clear, water.

A Cloud In Passage

In a visit to Banff National Park, I was mesmerized by how the clouds interacted with the mountains and valleys. This was at sunset, where the sun was caressing the mountain tops and this long, slow moving cloud hovered below in the valley. So peaceful.

Divi Tree on Eagle Beach, Aruba

One of the most interesting trees I've come across was on this beach in Aruba. I love how it bends and twists throughout the entire tree. I just wish I could have found more of them to photograph!

Aruba Sunset

Catching the Sunset in Aruba, the sky looks fiery and deep with thanks to the passing clouds.

A rustic orange-amber glow in a mix of contrasting clouds puts this sunset in Aruba as one of my favorites.

Central Park: A Moment of Zen

In a city that is constantly in GO, taking a moment in Central Park at this bridge and pond makes you feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.

Endless Horizons in Blue

I loved how each half of this photo of clouds pulls you in to the center, with deep blues, powdered clouds, streaky clouds, etc. Love the depth. I need to fly more often to take in these type of views!

Whispy Clouds in Blue

Out my Jet Blue window I spotted this cloud that's shape captured my attention enough to click a photo. Love the contrast of the deep blues and the soft whites.

Forest Tranquility

This is a small waterfall you come up to first at Wallace Falls State Park. I love hiking through dense woods to come across that sound of a waterfall or moving water and finally come up on it. So worth the hike.

In The Presence Of The Ten Peaks

Standing at the top of the rock pile overlooking the majesty of Banff National Park's Moraine Lake (which is half empty in the beginning of June) and The Ten Peaks was awe inspiring...Must return here later in Summer.

Mountain From The Mist

Captured this beautiful mountain rise from the clouds in the early morning sun.

Mountains vs. Clouds

It's a constant battle in Banff National Park, where clouds and mountains clash and collide. Loved the contrasts here and the opening blue sky behind - taken near sunset.
