The ongoing exhibit, “The National Parks in Washington State”, is on display for one final month at the Washington State Convention Center in downtown Seattle. The show continues through January 13, 2011.
The 2009 PBS documentary by Ken Burns demonstrated just how popular and important the National Parks are to everyone. They are ingrained in our consciousness and help to define the characteristics of our nation as well as our own identity as individuals. The state of Washington has 13 units administered by the National Park Service, including the three largest and most familiar: Mt. Rainier National Park, North Cascades National Park and Olympic National Park.
The display of pictures at the Washington State Convention Center is the work of seven professional nature photographers, all residents of Washington. The show uses photography to embrace the diversity and beauty of Washington’s National Parks. Landscapes, flora & fauna, and intricate details are all represented. Six of Dave Schiefelbein’s images are included. (As it is the holiday season, Dave would like to remind everyone that all of his photos are available for purchase!)
The exhibit is free, open 7 days a week, and viewing hours are long:

My love affair with barns began early in life. I was raised in the country in rural southern Minnesota surrounded by corn and soybean fields. Children of farmers were my playmates. Bicycles were our freedom to roam & explore and the surrounding barns were our private playgrounds for climbing or games of hide & seek.
