Your eyes so beautiful captures in the lens a wonder pretty place. Smoking awesome!

As a photographer I am both a witness and interpreter of nature. My goal is to capture the essence of the landscape through the lens of my inner vision.

For insight in to my photographic approach follow my blog at https://erwinbuske.photo.blog/ Erwin's photography began with a desire to share his outdoor experiences in the Pacific Northwest, and while he has grown passionate about the art and craft of photography, he stays true to his roots of wandering through the hills, mountains, and the coast. As a photographer, Erwin is both a witness and int

Spider Man

Photographing Japanese Maples in Autumn is one of the things I just love to do. Each tree seems to have its own character that almost every photographer sees in a slightly different way. A good Japanese Maple is truly a tree with a thousand faces. This year I decided to try photographing these trees in a much different way getting as close a possible to some of the more sinewy and well established branches. I call this image Spider Man because the branch extending form the right appears to be reaching out in several directions in a manner that looks both human and spider like.

Mushroom Ladder into a PNW Forest

The woods across from my house are really for the most part a quite ordinary mix of second growth deciduous and evergreen trees. But every once in a while on my frequent walks I stubble across an extraordinary moment and beauty.

Glimpses of Early Winter in Autumn

It was sure a mixed up feeling underneath Early Winter Spires, snow falling as the sun was still struggling to find a place to peak through, and the larches seemingly getting more gold in this mix of elements!

Larch Reflections and a Loon in a Pond

On a rainy day in the North Cascades, I found it very relaxing to listen to the nearly quiet sound of rain, watch larch reflections in a pond, and a lone loon slowly drift in and out of the reeds.

Rattlesnake Mountain Autumn Moods

One of the things I love about the Pacific Northwest are days like this. This is from our hike today through showers of rain and walking in and out of the fog and clouds.

Golden Larches in the Afternoon Sun

Larches are of course beautiful at the edges of the day, but in my experience they are actually most brilliant more toward the middle of the day and are always so wonderous as I pass through them on my way to the destination.

Her Majesty Lake Ann Sunset

In late September a few years ago, I spent a couple of nights in the North Cascades experiencing two sunset that left a deep impression upon me, putting me in an almost trance like state as I marveled in awe at how the setting sun transformed an already beautiful landscape into a glimpse of heaven itself right here on earth.

Three Small Trees in an Autumn Winter Forest

One of the best things I like about hiking to a destination are the flashes of perception I experience along the way-images I was not necessarily looking for but reveal themselves in the corners of my eyes. This gives me pause to enjoy the beauty that is part of the journey.

Gene Coulon Park Boulevard: Reflections in the Rain

There were some perfect conditions at the Coulon Park Boulevard this morning-rain, a glimmer of warm light, reflections, Autumn leaves, and fallen leaves!

Mushrooms underneath Ferns

One of the things I look forward to in the cool damp days of Autumn are the appearance of mushrooms in PNW forests. This if from my walk in the forest today in the Snoqualmie Pass area. Mushroom experts out there--does anyone know the name of these mushrooms?

I never tire of this view and it seems like every year I see it in a different perspective and enjoy its always different mood, color and atmosphere.

Autumn Winter Fusion

Julia and I headed north from Stevens Pass along the Pacific Crest yesterday, hiking from Autumn into Winter, and many steps in between. I just love seasons in transition.

Huckleberries and a Dusting of Snow

In the early morning light huckleberry leaves slowly emerge out of the shadows with a dusting of snow and luminous red leaves.

2022 Calendars and Ebook

Here is a wonderful comment I just received about my new 2022 Calendar and Ebook!

"I bought your 2022 calendar and love every picture. I recommend that and your new book to all your followers. You have such an amazing eye." Cassandra

Quick links to the Calendar and Ebook are on my website! The Ebook, The Hidden Landscape: The Inside Passage-- is an image rich book that explores how mystery, and my connection to nature along with the wisdom of Taoism, Zen and American Transcendentalism help guide my approach to the art and craft of photography. Here are a few images from the calendar. www.erwinbuske.com

A Walk in an Autumn Forest

After experiencing major crowds at the Heather Maple Pass Loop, this Autumn Forest in the North Cascades sure seemed calm, peaceful and fulfilling. I loved this lonesome walk through the dense understory vine maples underneath tall and majestic virgin evergreen hemlock trees on this overcast day.

Autumn Passage

Peak fall color is of course beautiful, but what I find even more interesting are seasonal transitions. Seasonal transitions often make us more aware of changes in our own lives and consciousness. The passage this year from Summer to Fall has in particular been more beautiful than I can recall in previous years. This passage is looking out to the south from the Pacific Crest north of Stevens Pass.

Mount Baker with a White Hat and Puffer Jacket

This is a telephoto perspective of Mount Baker as viewed from the top of Dickerman. I was drawn to the puffy clouds below the peak and its white hat, along with the fall color on a nearby ridge.

Mount Dickerman Autumn Glory
Yesterday I headed up Mount Dickerman, arrived around noon, and staid on top all the way until sunset. I found a spot that looked out to the west to capture the magic of autumn and the sun setting over the western peaks including Mt. Pilchuck. It is a bit of a challenge staying until sunset but the good comes with the bad. An hour or so before sunset, I had the place all to myself! It is a 4,000 foot descent back to the trail head, but it the experience justified any hardship!

Sundown at Mount Baker

It never ceases to amaze me, how nature can go from this bright luminous light spreading across the meadow to the whole world being cast in shadow just a few moments later. There is magic in them there hills!

Our Story

I started his photographic journey at an early age with the simple goal of sharing the landscapes I witnessed on my many backpacking and hiking trips. I wanted others to appreciate the sense of awe and wonder I felt on my many journeys through the backcountry. Although my initial attempts fell short of this goal, I never stopped trying and photography became linked to my path of self discovery, with the mingling of the internal and external landscapes finding expression in my images. I adhere to the Sierra Club's goal — to leave no trace, respecting the landscape he photographs and keeping it pristine for future generations. Photographing nature has brought great joy to my life and I want to share this joy through inspirational images and writing. My work has been recognized by the Smithsonian, National Geographic, Outdoor Photography and Landscape Photography Magazines. I am also a writer/blogger (erwinbuske.photo.blog/) on a multitude of subjects including "Multiday Backpacking and Photography" and "Finding Your Photographic Vision" and I am also available as a speaker/presenter. At least once a year I lead groups of people into wilderness areas helping others realize their photographic vision. I also offer one on one photographic instruction. Currently I am also the primary curator for the page Destination Pacific Northwest. Our family including my wife Julia and daughter Caroline and I live in Fairwood, Wash., where the foothills of the cascades are literally right out our front door. Prints available on my website (www.erwinbuske.com/)
