buntzen lake

living in a rain forest has a few downsides. they mostly involve endless dark days filled with tons of falling rain.

a much younger version of myself spent a while studying photography. i worked at a photography shop for 9 years and, although i by NO MEANS consider myself a gifted photo taker (it really does take something special- something jeff has and i am able to sometimes fake a little bit,) the one thing that stuck with me all these years is that overcast skies make for the the perfect photo taking backdrop.

so, all those dark days of clouds and fog do have an upside- a blog filled with technically flawed but perfectly beautiful photographs. memories of our simple adventures exploring our never ending backyard.


  1. This makes me ache to come West again. Beautiful photos, they capture the rain forest ambiance perfectly.

    1. thanks my sweet :) and please know you are welcome to stay with us ANY time! we have a cozy spare bed in our living room with you, patt and juliet's name all over it.
