Spokane Landscapes NE

I wanted to drive to Sandpoint, Idaho and see what there was to see there. It's about a 90-minute drive from Spokane. I knew my sister had a day off, so Mel and Steve accompanied me. They hadn't been up there in years and we decided to make an afternoon of it and have a picnic at the lake.

My photo opportunities are different when I'm traveling with others, and I was in their car. I feel awkward shouting out, "Stop here! Immediately!" and then jumping out to snap some photographs. I like to take my time and mull it over if I have that luxury. Mel kept telling me to just let them know when I wanted to stop, but it just isn't a comfortable position to be in. If all three of us were photographers that would be a different situation, but only one of us was a photographer.

So, this trip to Sandpoint was strictly as a passenger in the backseat. I'm not complaining, it was interesting and I didn't have to drive ... although I love to drive. Sandpoint was interesting, although not much there other than the lake. We were just sightseeing, not fishing, swimming or boating, or attending any event.

My camera battery again pooped out on me, but I did manage to snap a few shots with my iPhone.

So, today's upload is of some landscapes I snapped with my iPhone from the backseat on the way back from Sandpoint, just northeast of Spokane.

Evergreens on a Hill

I rather liked the horizontal of the window
and the asphalt

This one I did crop off the road and car interior
