Best Professional Lens  – Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

 Shadow Riders - Now I kinda wish I had photoshopped cowboy hat shadows for each of us! From family adventures in Saguaro National Park, Arizona
 Menzie's Penstemon or as the nerds say - Penstemon davidsonii ;) Found these little purple flowers on the way down from Paradise in Mt Rainier National Park and thought they made a nice foreground to the beautiful and still snowcapped peak in the distance. Captured with the GH5 and 12-35 f/2.8 Lens #lumixloungegh3
 Rainy Day Reflections of Seattle's coolest public library - I almost said coolest building but the new Amazon spheres are crazy cool. I like living in the future - now if we could just ecotopia this place up all would be peachy!
