I’m always looking for new locations for photography. After 32 years of traveling North America, it’s getting difficult to find places I have never explored. I have made many trips to the state of Washington but I have never spent much time exploring the Columbia River, the boundary between Oregon and Washington. The hills and canyons along the Columbia River are very dramatic and add a strong backdrop for photographs of the area. Mid-summer turns the hills a golden hue. More colorful images can be created with a summer visit to the Yakima Valley as fruit orchards display a vivid spectrum for photographers.
