The Pacific Northwest evokes images of rugged rocky beaches, lush rain-soaked forests, and snow-covered mountains. Much of the landscape of Washington and Oregon, however, is made up of high deserts, lava-lined canyons, and rolling ranch lands. While living in Portland, Oregon, from 1982 to 2007, I had the opportunity to experience and photograph the diverse and delightful landscapes of this part of the country. The photos in this gallery illustrate the variety of landscapes in Washington and Oregon. For a book with these images and more, please visit the prints & books page.
