    Our Focus this Friday is on Landscapes from the State of Washington!

    I realize this might limit participation a bit, but for those who have never been to Washington State, let this be a teaser as to why you should go.

    Add your photos to this Thread please.

    Jim

    I will start with some from various trips to Mount Rainier.

    I think I might have a shot or two that fit the subject here.

    How about an old bridge on the west side of Spokane? And another on the east side?

    Thanks for another easy Friday Focus Jim. I grew up here, but had to leave for about 15 years in search of powder snow and new mountain ranges, but when it was time to settle down there wasn't any place else I could imagine living.

    Ha ha, I figured that you might just have a few photos Alan... :)

    I like these, and not sure I recall seeing them before. If I have, I am certainly glad to see them again as they are all really cool.

    I haven't spent anywhere near as much time shooting in Washington as I'd like, but here are a few...
