A PHOTO ESSAY


ALEXANDER SOHL was born and raised on Vashon Island, in Puget Sound, Washington State, USA. He works every day to expose the beauty of nature and the thoughtfulness of its landscape. Spending his early 20s in Los Angeles, he honed his craft in the foothills and deserts of California, but has now returned to his homeland to explore the dense forests and vast mountains of the Pacific Northwest. The love is in the lens and the eye is ever searching.


THE GLOW OF EL CAPITAN


THE GLOW OF EL CAPITAN


Yosemite National Park is a must-see destination for people of all vocations and interests. For photographers, capturing the El Capitan sunset is a bucket list check off !




BESSIE BUTTE


BESSIE BUTTE


A quick jaunt outside of town, Bessie Butte is one of the best views around Bend. On a clear day you can see more than 100 miles to Mt. Hood and over to Washington Peak in the nearby Three Sisters Range. Just a quick steep hike to reap some large rewards.




WASHINGTON PASS


WASHINGTON PASS


Glowing mountain tops and luscious sunrise clouds make a frigid October morning worth the trek. Washington Pass is one of the most picturesque locations in the North Cascades National Park and if you’re short on time, or not prepared to do a serious trek, this viewpoint is a short walk from the parking lot. With its perfect peaks facing in both directions, sunrise or sunset is the best time to capture the scene.




DIABLO LAKE


DIABLO LAKE


As a photographer there is nothing better than waking up and seeing a gray sky and low hanging fog wrapped around the landscape. It creates such a moody vibe and puts more personality onto an otherwise potentially plain shot. Almost like creating something out of nothing. Diablo Lake is already a legendary location, but with the fog as an accent it makes it all the more special.
