Photographing the Pacific Northwest ~ This is a place I spent a lot of time with my mom growing up. My mom was from Washington State and grew up near Aberdeen. The beaches here take me back to my most fond memories as a child. This beach has a very specific feel to it, not like any other beach.
Campfires on the beach lend smoke to the salt air creating a bit of mystery to the surrounding forest. This is one of my most favorite images. Mostly because it makes me think of my mom.
