Here in the Pacific Northwest (specifically Washington State) there is ample opportunity to take in nature in various forms; coastlines, forests, and deserts. As a photographer it has some strong merits.

Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation #2

Continuing from the previous post about Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation

Our guide gave us a full tour of the facilities and how the process goes from the picking of the ripe red coffee bean, to the peeling, to the sorting and drying, and finally the roasting.X30_16-06-20_0062-1

Hand-picked beans are driven a short distance and dumped into this bin to begin the process of washing and sorting.

Seascapes et. al. (new prints)

My trip to Hawaii a couple of weeks ago was fulfilling on many levels, not the least of which was photographic. I am well-pleased with the short series of photos I made during that stay and will be sharing them here for the next little while. Many of them will also be available as prints at my site; including the three in this post.

I hope they provide as much satisfaction to you as they do me.

Punalu’u Beach (black sand beach)

Yesterday saw us hitting the road to explore a novelty of the island; Punalu’u Beach, singularly noted for the features of its black sand and the presence of Green Sea Turtles. Unfortunately, the turtles did not make an appearance during our time there.
