[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have heard nice things about Northern Idaho. Once I moved to Canada I found Northern Idaho is halfway between our house and grandpa's, and so it became a visited spot -- we stop here a couple times a year.

Lake Pend Oreille is a nice lake. The main town is Sandpoint, which is very nice. It is very pedestrian-friendly, which I find to be rare these days. I also like the Thai restaurant. Both may be because it seems to be a bit of an ourgrowth of a hippy culture.

This may not be the most compelling image. But I'm trying to completes my map for the Western US ).

Not a bad shot, but I think a few things could've been improved on. I think the shot should have been cropped tighter -- I think the left side of the photo, as well as the bottom area has a lot of wasted space. I think it would look a lot nicer if the sea gulls took up more of the picture. Other than that, I think the photo is too bright.. on the positive side, I think the overal idea of the picture is beautiful -- seagulls enjoying the warm sand on a beautiful beach on a beautiful day. I also love how there are two different areas of mountains. On the right side, the mountains are fairly close, but on the left side, the mountains are far off in the distance. Overall, good picture!
