Carkeek Park | Ektar 100 | Canon AE-1

Going through the archives and finding some work that I want to put here.

In 2016 I traded my Nikon DSLR for a Canon AE-1 Program and 50mm lens. Loaded up with Portra and Ektar and Tri-x, I began a slow return to photography that has only recently begun to accelerate.

Here are some of my first efforts with the Ektar 100. Carkeek Park makes a pretty compelling subject any season. But the fall to winter season and then winter to spring are my favorite periods.

Barclay Lake

June 22, 2019. Looking for a first hike of the summer, we pointed our car up Highway 2 towards Stevens Pass. Although we had been aiming for Lake Dorothy, some last minute guidebook consulting and possible iffy (read: pending rain) weather had us aborting the longer drive and looking for something a bit closer. We were glad we did, as we happened to return to Barclay Lake.

The access road is a ways past Monroe, near milepost 41 and across the street from a store that has been selling conveniences for, well, probably since miners and loggers were making their way into these hills. Up the rutted and pitted road to its end and after two plus miles of fairly gentle hiking, one finds Barclay Lake.
