I Clicked it Up a Notch - June

If May was a difficult month, June was daunting. However, I was determined to spend some time with my photography. I had the opportunity to head to the eastern part of the state of Washington to a place called the Qunicy Wildlife Recreation Area. It was an amazing journey and ended with the chance to try to photograph a sunset silhouette shot of something other than the ocean. It stretched me a bit to find a location with enough visual interest for the amazing sunset to contrast with, but I feel successful in the end. I am glad that I took the time to capture this moment and to take a photographic chance.
