Best of 2015

Rather than post separate images, this year I've decided to put several of my favorite images of 2015 together into a collection. It's been a wonderful year. I am so thankful for weekends, breaks, and summers to be able to pursue my passion for documenting our amazing corner of the country. So, without more rambling, here are twelve images from the year. I can't say they are my best, but they are at the least nostalgic or emotional for me.

 Whenever the moon shows up, I am happy.

 Probably my favorite image of the year. I've climbed the mountain twice, and to catch a shooting star (not satellite or airplane) over it was incredibly fortuitous.

 I made my husband drive down here. We were staying at Rosario Resort for our anniversary while exploring Orcas Island, and I fell in love with this dock.

 We earned this view. We raced up Mount Ellinor to catch this sunset view before hiking and sliding down by light of a few headlamp LEDs.
