Sometimes I have to remind myself that it is OK to take a non-work related photograph. Sunset pictures are as common as candy, but it was the graphic look of the silhouetted power poles stacked up against the orange sky that made me pull over. Thankfully, I had put my 20-year-old Nikon 300 mm f/4 lens in my trunk for another assignment. Its telephoto effect worked perfectly on this highway scene leading into Medical Lake, Washington. Sometimes a pretty picture is just that. Looking at this image just makes me feel good. Nikon D3s with a Nikkor 300mm f/4 lens ~ Spokesman-Review staff photojournalist Colin Mulvany
