Lucky number seven in 2016 for Photo Cascadia. Seven for the first full year with seven team members and seven for the number of years Photo Cascadia has been around. Speaking of luck it was honestly mostly luck in the beginning that this specific team of photographers formed, have become good friends and enjoy sharing experiences and knowledge with all of you for as long as we have. During this time we have seen similar groups form and fold. We hope this seven year stretch is only the beginning of our journey as you join us along for the ride. In the end it’s you, the readers, that continue to provide energy for what we do at Photo Cascadia. For this we are extremely grateful and thankful… thank you!
Where did 2016 take you for adventure and photography? I am sure it was similar to many on the Photo Cascadia team where we spent time in our own backyards, crossing state lines as well as some continent hopping. If you have been watching our blog for more than a year now you will know that mid December is when Photo Cascadia takes a break from our weekly posting until mid January. It’s our time to step back and reflect on the year that has past while winding down with family and friends.
As we reflect on things it’s a good time to remember that all the places we get to visit should be available for those that come after us. It seems 2016 we unfortunately saw a rise, at least in the media if not reality, around people doing permanent damage to places we all want to enjoy and photograph as well as companies and political forces looking to seize locations set aside for long term preservation. Now days, perhaps more than ever, we all need breaks into nature whether some of us realize it or not as the number of us living in a concrete jungle grows. With that I leave you with one of my favorite quotes.
“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.” – Edward Abbey
We take this time to provide a year end visual show of where we have traveled with some behind the scenes clips. Take a four minute break and check it out.
May your year close out with many lasting memories and the new year start with a trail full of endless possibilities.

Here we are, another year is coming to a close for all of us which brings time to reflect on the past and what potentially lies ahead for the new year. We don’t know about you yet we can say it’s breathtaking to look back at the photos each of us from Photo Cascadia captured this year and the places we visited. Wherever 2013 took you with your photography adventures we hope you enjoy looking back at what it brought for you. For us viewing this slideshow is fresh reminder of the beauty that surrounds us on this planet allowing us to create the work we do and all we have to be thankful for. One of my favorite quotes sums it up best.
“I think having land and not ruining it is the most beautiful art that anybody could ever want.” – Andy Warhol
We invite you to take a few minutes (3:27 if I have to be precise) to see a few of the favorites from the team this year.
We would also like to thank all of our subscribers and viewers to the newsletter and blog. All of you inspire us to continue along this Photo Cascadia journey. We will take a holiday break from blog posts until mid-January. After that we should be posting again and look forward to engaging with our readers as we usually do. We hope this holiday season brings you memorable experiences and quality time with family and friends.
Happy Holidays and New Year from the crew at Photo Cascadia!
