2020 comes to a welcome end tomorrow, and I’ve been thinking about this last year and all it has been. While it had so many challenges and disappointments, looking through my images from the year, I was pleasantly surprised at all the good memories I had and the images I was able to create. I’m not going to go into detail about each image but I had to narrow this down from about 50 favorites, which included wildlife, nature and even some people. But, staying true to my passion, I’ve settled on 20 landscapes for my tribute to the year. Watch for another post with some other subjects.
Like everyone else, I am happy to be leaving 2020 behind and looking forward to 2021 with hope for brighter days ahead.
Landscape photography~ No other activity brings my heart such joy as experiencing sunrise surrounded by the fragrance of mountain wildflowers, watching a lake steam in the first light of an autumn morning, discovering new locations both near and far and listening to the babbling of a mountain stream, or watching the last of the sunset colors fade into night…
2019 was a year filled with all of these things and more and for that I am thankful.
It is with a significant sadness in my heart that I will embark upon the medical challenges presented to me going forward into 2020, but also with hope that I may continue pursuing these things that fulfill me.
Idaho Scenic Images presents its 2017 photography workshop line-up and online classes. Strategically positioned in stunning locations around the state, and for different lengths of time, you’re sure to find a workshop to fit your needs.
Only 2 spots left for my newly announced Palouse “Dayshop”.
There are also 2 spots left on my permit to work in the Sawtooth National Recreation area.
One of these can be a non-lodging spot(discounted), and one full lodging spot, or it would be good for two friends to share a room with two twin beds. (At a discount of course)
Don’t miss this gorgeous time of year in the Sawtooth Mountains!
In July we’ll head to the often overlooked beauty of Island Park. Situated in the northeastern corner of Idaho, in an ancient caldera and on the edge of Yellowstone.
We have three nights in a large lodge-style house with everyone having their own private room. This will be a smaller group, accommodating only 5 students.
The “Waterfalls and Wildflowers” workshop is a deluxe, 4 day/3 night extravaganza of beauty and adventure.
In August you can take my online class “Mastering Composition” from the comfort of your own home, and photograph on your own schedule, with assignments to complete each week.
In September we’ll be staying in cabins on the shores of Priest Lake, admiring waterfalls and endless mountain views in the heart of the Selkirks.
For peak fall color, join us in the Teton and Swan Valleys of Eastern Idaho. From orange aspen to golden cottonwoods to red mountain maples, not to mention The towering Teton range. This workshop is sure to delight.
