Calendar Stories – 2017 Edition

Every December my day-job company, Robinson Noble, puts together a calendar to send to clients. I provide all the photos in the calendar. This year is no exception, and our 2017 calendar will be mailed out probably next week. As part of the process, I annually write a post on the Robinson Noble blog telling a bit about the photos in the calendar. It is always interesting picking the images to be used in the calendar, which I do with the help of our business development manager. We select images from throughout the Pacific Northwest, since that is where most of our client are from. But it can be a bit of a challenge to pick images that not only represent differing parts of the Northwest, but also represent the months and seasons. Plus, you don’t want too many sunset pictures or too many images of Mount Rainier (I’m not sure, but the 2017 edition may be the first one without any images of Mount Rainier).

I took the image above at Griffiths-Priday Ocean State Park, which is located at the town of Copalis Beach on the Washington coast. In the calendar, it is the April photo. Washington has a lot of broad sandy beaches, and I always struggle to capture interesting images of them. Thanks to the curving stream on the beach at Griffiths-Priday, I think I succeeded in finally getting a good image of a sandy Washington beach.

You can use this link to see the rest of the images in the 2017 calendar, and to read the stories behind the images.

  1. Hi Joe, I enjoyed every single image- you are very talented. Your moon shot was worth the effort and the landscapes are phenomenal. Great job.
