Benson Vineyards overlooking Lake Chelan.

By Dan Fitting

In the late 1970s, my younger brother Jim and a good friend of mine got me interested in photography. I replaced my point-and-shoot Kodak with a “real” camera, a Nikon FE, which I still have.

After puttering around for a bit, I took a class at an upscale camera shop in Bellevue and really got hooked. My skills and technique improved, but circumstances in my life changed and my enthusiasm waned for a number of years.

When digital cameras became popular, my interest was revived, and it’s been my passion ever since.

Because I enjoyed drawing and painting in my younger years, appreciation for scenery comes naturally. I find beauty and interest in unusual settings as well as contemporary landscapes.

While never passing up the beauty of everyday images that I see when traveling around Eastern Washington, my passion for the wine industry has added diversity to my portfolio. I took this photo of the Benson Vineyards overlooking Lake Chelan.

Such a beautiful winery with an outstanding view. There are not that many wineries that are amongst a large vineyard which adds to the atmosphere and beauty when going wine tasting. That along with great wine is why I like to go there.
