Pics from trip to Anacortes / San Juan islands (WA)

Rocked the little point and shoot this time as I didn't have room in my bag for the camera I usually use. Weather was pretty ugly the first few days, and on Tuesday it cleared up nicely. I was supposed to come home that day, but put it off for a day and ended up taking the ferry over to Friday Harbor for dinner. When the weather's nice in the summer, the PacNW is sure hard to beat in terms of natural beauty.

Great pics, now I'm even more homesick. I get to home in a couple of weeks but only for the weekend.
Miss the NW summers.

I was just in the San Juan Islands from July 13th through July 19th. We left from Squalicom Harbor in Bellingham. We had pretty good weahter. One day it rained a little, but other than that it was very nice. Actually, the cooler weather was a nice break from the hot weather we are having here. This was my first trip to the Bellingham area. Beautiful part of the world. Your "little one" is quite the cutie.

This pic is over looking Roche Harbor.

+ that! Yeah that's it, we get nothing but rain and have a bunch of Birkenstock wearing, Starbuck drinking tree hugging EMO kids who sit around and whine all day about how the worlds dying and life sucks.
Yeah that's it, that's the ticket.
Actually, come on up. Been to every state in the US and nowhere better in the spring, summers and fall and the winters are just an acquired taste.
Damn I miss home right now.

Saw plenty of those too. Actually, from what I've observed, it's usuall the 1) Teva sandals with socks, or 2) Keen shoes/sandals and 3) environmental bumper stickers plastered on the back of their late 80's/early 90's Volvos or Subarus

hey luwin
It's great to see an avid cyclist/photographer such as me!
Anyways, how do you get your pictures to have such vibrant colors and contrast?! Do you use a certain photo-editing program?
