For Jeff by cwexplorationphotography

I never got to meet Jeff Swanson but hearing about his story and the lives he touched inspired me to post something in his memory. Plus cancer sucks. Plain and simple. I’ve lost many loved ones to it, so any way that I can support the cause to finding a cure is a huge plus in my book.

Please check out Jeff’s memorial page and the Melanoma Research Foundation website in the links below:

This image comes from a very foggy sunrise up near Mt. St. Helen’s Washington. Sometimes you just need to be there, soak it all in and take a deep breath.

Hey there. I know some of you have probably seen this image before, but I’m re-posting it for a reason. It’s been one year since friend and photographer Jeff Swanson passed away all too young from melanoma, and those of us who knew him are putting up images in his memory. I don’t have any new images processed and ready, so I’m re-posting this one that was strangely purple in its first rendition – went for a straight blue this time.

You can view Jeff’s images at – the profit from any print sales goes toward the Melanoma Research Foundation. They also accept straight donations.

RIP, buddy.
