More Yakima Canyon

Cruising through my collection, I found several shots that Mister Sykes might have liked.  In many of his photos, he sought out the dramatic – dark, threatening skies with a peaceful foreground and the resulting tension between the two.  Of course, much of this is being in the right place at the right time, which for Horace at retirement age, was not a problem.

Here, in the Sykes style, is a right place/right time photo taken of the great bowl across from Umtanum creek.

  1. if this landscape moves you, you probably deserve to know that there is an almost magically hidden path into something MUCH deeper that heads west up a side canyon. I suspect it’s name should not be spoken in public places.
