Mid-Columbia Eastern Washington Photo Gallery

Kayaker In The Yakima Delta

I’ve recently added a selection of my photographs taken in and around the Mid-Columbia region of Tri-Cites in Eastern Washington State to my online portfolio. There are so many photo opportunities here where I live – – dramatic skies, wildlife, three rivers coming together, agriculture, vineyards, orchards, amazing topography carved out from glaciers of many […]


Beauty In The Mid-Columbia

Horse Heaven Hills

Beautiful scenery abounds year round in Tri-Cities Mid-Columbia region of Eastern Washington state. I feel very fortunate to live in the Northwest. Drama in the sky, orchards and vineyards, three rivers converging, treeless mountains, shrub steppe, wildlife and the refuges they live in are just a few of the perks, if you appreciate nature’s beauty. […]


Prosser, Washington Panoramic View at Twilight

Mount Adams Sunset

I ventured out recently to photograph Pan-Starrs Comet, which was forecasted to appear that evening at twilight, just to the left of where the sun set. I found a nice high spot on a hill above Prosser, Washington which I thought would be a perfect lookout. Well, I never did see that comet. Maybe it […]

Honey Bees & Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossoms

Honey Bees Love Spring Time, and So Do I It’s spring time in the Mid-Columbia, and I keep finding myself drawn to the honey bees so busy on the local blooms. I feel so lucky to live in what some call the “fruit bowl of the nation”. Last Saturday I visited Middleton Organic Orchards, where Lori […]


BFMG Demonstration Garden

BFMG Demonstration Garden, a set on Flickr. It’s almost time to get busy in the garden again. Yay! I’m also looking forward to helping with the Benton Franklin Master Gardener’s demonstration garden this season. If you haven’t visited yet, it’s located next to the Kennewick library on Union Street. Be sure and take a stroll […]


Summer Breeze & Busy Bees In The Demonstration Garden

Bees & Lavendar

I’m not a master of gardening, but I’ve been participating in the Benton-Franklin Master Gardeners program this year, and I’ve learned so much. Mostly how much there is still to learn. I have really enjoyed photographing at different times the beautiful demonstration garden next to the Mid-Columbia library in Kennewick. All the work is performed […]
