    Got a chance to head over to my family cabin in Eastern Washington this weekend. I've shared a few of these pictures already, but thought it was kind of a cool batch of photos I came back with. I've been coming here my entire life, but never was into photography before. Comments and critique welcome!

    These were taken with the GX1 and EM-5. Lenses used included 7-14/14/25/45/100-300. The whole set is on my flickr: Lake Chelan - a set on Flickr

    These two are the site of my property, which hopefully I can build on in the next ten years or so.

    Lake Chelan is about 30 minutes from where I live. Nice place, spent my childhood there during the summer. Even was married there up at Stehekin. The cleanest, clearest water and 55 miles long.

    Thanks Joe. I love this area dearly. It really is fantastic!

    You in the Wenatchee area? Stehekin would be a great place to get married, I imagine. Really is the best lake water I've ever seen.

    All very nice, my favorite is the last one. What setup was that? If you don't mind me asking.

    Yes, live in the Wenatchee area. Have for all my live, other than a short 6 months in the Seattle area. Started to get web feet so returned to the east side of the mountains.

    Exif is on Flickr for full details. I believe it is the Panasonic 14mm with the EM-5 shot off my mefoto tripod. Around a 20 second exposure. I used my petzl headlamp for about 10 seconds of that exposure to light up that shrub in front of me.

    NIce set. The shot with the boat remind me of "Miami Vice" TV show.

    Funny you say that, I thought the exact same thing after I took that one!
