13 & 14 are mine. Brandon is built next to the Assiniboine River. The Assiniboine and the Red Rivers were the original "highways" of the pioneers. This particular spot (#13) has some large rocks protruding when the water level is low enough and can make for some interesting shots year round. #14 is a rest stop off the national highway just east of Brandon. It was dusk and the shot is overexposed. It looks like the camera flash went off. The ground cover is quite colourful otherwise.
This was taken in the Skagit Valley, between La Conner and Anacortes, about an hour north of Seattle. Looking across sleeping tulip fields towards the Cascades foothills. I go up there with some frequency, I just love the flat landscape and the vast sky overhead.
