The Pacific Northwest this year was pounded with snow. Mt Bachelor a lone received 478 inches since October 1st. It was a great year to be in Bend and a landscape photographer. Both Nate and I made several trips all over the Pacific Northwest in chase of winter landscapes. A few highlights of mine were skiing Mt Bachelor, driving to the Bend airport and shooting aerial photos with Nate all in the same day. The winter can turn any river, mountain, waterfall, and stream into a surreal experience.
