Lone tree along the edge of the Island

After the group had left Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands, a couple of us decided to head out on one of the whale watching boats. Although, the trip only offered a few glimpses of seals, I was rewarded with some great conversation. Mark Kettenhofen was with us from Nikon. He was there as a guest teacher on the DLWS workshop. While we were out on the boat, I couldn't help but be intrigued by the unique topography of these barren islands as they passed by. An occasional boat house here and there, rocky coastlines, crashing waves, deer running across the dry grass hill. Almost like they were chasing the boat as we cruised along the coast.

Anyway, getting back to Mark..

We talked about a book of his that was due out called "America from 500 feet 2". All of it was shot from an ultralight by he and Bill Fortnoy......talk about a cool project! I haven't bought it yet, but I plan to. If you get a chance, check out this link. Very slick site !
