The Pacific Northwest is a land of clouds and trees, and intermittent rain. An area of flooded glacial valleys with a long history of human habitation. I was born in Los Angeles in 1951 and moved to the area in 2002. It took about 8 years to acclimate to the climate. Now I am uncomfortable with days over 75 degrees. Besides the State and Federal Properties, there is not much open land. Man here as elsewhere has been busy shaping the land to his needs. These shots were created with the Pentax 645N and 75mm 2.8 Lens. I used Kodak Portra 400 and pushed it one stop. The film was developed at Panda Lab in Seattle.
