Photographer’s Notes
Near Seattle there’s a rustic valley, the Snoqualmie Valley, named for the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe who called this area home before it was settled by whites. Just off the Ames Lake – Carnation Road, there’s a neat field bordered by trees. I’ve been keeping my eye on these as Fall approaches to try to capture the change in colors. It’s still a little early but we’re almost there.

I would love to see this blown up, its a shame that panoramic doesn't really look as impressive as it could with the pixel restrictions. I love the hint of mountains paralleling the taller trees to the left
