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.

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.

Native Plant Hike - Wallula Gap

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 […]
