Road to Mount Rainier

Back in October we had a good stretch of rain followed by a short break so we packed up the kids and headed up to Rainier. There was no way we were passing up a sunny fall day in the park.

In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. – John 1:4-5

I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent. – Luke 15:7

Forest Service Road 7012

We were up in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest just outside of Mount Rainier last weekend on a Christmas Tree hunt. If you’ve ever cut down a tree in the forest you know that they are more like Charlie Brown Trees than ones you find at a Christmas Tree Lot/Farm. Nevertheless, I think the one we got was pretty good. The roads were pretty nice and the sun was out so it made for a nice family adventure. Anyway, here’s a picture of the sun poking through the trees along Forest Road 7012.

“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot” – Matthew 5:13

Fall in Easton

I was going to Easton, Washington a couple weeks ago and accidentally got off on the wrong exit. As I was turning around to head back on the freeway I saw a little side-road. I thought I might as well pull over and take a picture.

“Therefore tell the people: This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘Return to me,’ declares the Lord Almighty, ‘and I will return to you,’ says the Lord Almighty” – Zechariah 1:3

Wheat Road

A few weeks ago my family and I spent some time at a friend’s wheat farm in Eastern Washington. I was only there for less than 24 hours so I didn’t get to do as much photography as I would have liked. After finishing dad duties the only evening I was there I rushed out to capture the sunset. Luckily, I was able to capture some of the color before it was gone.

“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty,but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” – Isaiah 55:10-11

Gravel Road

Gravel roads, paved roads, dirt roads it doesn’t matter because I’m a sucker for road shots. It’s too bad you can’t always stand in the middle of them to take a shot. Luckily for this one I could.

“Who among you fears the LORD and obeys the word of his servant? Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the LORD and rely on their God” – Isaiah 50:10

Embrace the Flare

I was setting up to take some sunset shots of the Golden Gate Bridge from the Marin Headlands in San Francisco, California when I noticed a pretty cool scene was unfolding behind me. The only problem was that I was getting some serious sun flare which is usually something I tried to avoid. To me it’s like a dust spot and I despise dust spots. However, in this case I thought it looked kind of cool so I left it in. Like a waiter at Chotchkie’s, sometimes you got to just embrace the flare.

Miles Away

I always like taking road shots especially when you can stand in the middle of the road. This was a cool road to do it on because I could pretty much take as long as I wanted as there were hardly any cars on it and even if there was one I could see it miles before it got to me.

Gravel Road

I like road shots and wood fence shots. So why not combine them both.

Planned Community

There’s a new planned community called Tehaleh in Washington that I checked out last month. They’ve got everything planned out from man-made lakes, walking trails, to a nice view of Mt Rainier as you’re leaving. Who wouldn’t want to come back with a view like that.
