The place we call home

Ryan Gilbert, a firefighter with the Bellingham Fire Department, enjoys spending time with his family in the outdoors.

His boys, 9 and 6, are old enough now that they can navigate the many trails in the northern Cascade Mountains, and they're out there often.

This past summer, in the process of documenting his family's many adventures, Gilbert used his Canon 7D to capture these stunning time-lapse images of the Bellingham area.
