Best of July 2014

Rabbit Butte Church in Perkins County, SD just after sunset on July 3rd.
Here are my favorite shots from July.  I spent a week in the Pacific Northwest at the end of the month and it was very difficult to pick which photos to post here from that trip as I saw a lot of beauty out there.  Click on an image for a larger file to view and thanks for checking in!

PS  Here is a link to more Pacific Northwest pics if you are interested:

Haystack Rock on Cannon Beach after the sunset so I could get a long exposure of the waves at it's base.
