Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus)
A Snowy Owl confronts a competitor along the Washington Coast several years ago. Snowy Owls are the heaviest North American Owl, which helps them to fly against strong winds whether they be in the Arctic or on the Pacific Coast.
When I visited Hermanus it's was peak whale season but unfortunately we missed them by a week and didn't see any. The seascapes though were amazing! Rugged coastline, great waves and mountains lit up but the sunset.
Daydreaming of the warmth of summer nights as I'm over here wrapped up in a blanket 🤣. The hubs and I are headed to California in a few weeks, where it will be in the 60-70s and I can hardly wait 🤣. I am in need of all the tips and tricks:
1. Flying with an almost 1 year old who is very active
2. Universal Studios guide with baby. I'm a Harry Potter junkie so getting to Harry Potter land is all I need 🤣. (We did see the awesome parent switch on ride program that they have, anyone try that out before?)

Alstrom Point overlook at Lake Powell yesterday. The view was breathtaking. Headed out to the Wave this morning.

I went out to take some nature pictures for my goal, but I didn’t capture anything I loved enough to post on here, so here’s one from our summer trip to Alaska. It’s nice to see some flowers today anyway—I’m kinda over winter. 😂
Some say the west has been tamed...but every time I get out into the depths of the American West, I realize it can never be tamed. And that’s what makes it so great!-
Photography tip of the day: Layers are a photographers friend, especially with landscape shots. Just pay attention to the colors and how they change over the distance. You’ll find some cool mixtures and great shots.

Took a drive through our neighborhood at dusk tonight. We are nestled in the Basin along the Cascade Mountain Range. Views from our back deck, and around the hood - beautiful after the snowfall we have been gifted! ❄️⛄️❄️

First New Decade Shoot (0672)
On January 2, 2020, I went down to Keyhole Arch in the Big Sur area to photograph the sunset and try to capture a sun star through the Arch. By the time I made it to the beach, there were probably 30 photographers and only a couple of spots to squeeze in if I wanted to shoot low. It was interesting to learn that they were stopping cars from making the 2+ mile drive to the beach because of a lack of parking. There was also a portion of the road that was flooded with about 6" of water, so the park rangers were monitoring that to avoid stuck cars.
