This light has a clarity more sharp-edged than any location I’ve ever been, and for a few days in summer, it is stunning. We had two such days of clarity this past weekend during a backpack trip into Olympic National Forest, located on the Olympic Peninsula.

Most of my photographs are straightforward views of landscapes, wildlife, small towns, or whatever else catches my eye … sometimes, however, my work takes a step beyond, to where the subject and intent can be “read” by the eye in several ways.

With a variety of Germans and other mostly foreign tourists, I experienced the delight of floating in saturated saltwater with head, feet, and hands easily sticking up out of the water with absolutely no effort–it was as relaxing as a good nap.
