Dig out your best photos of Washington state parks (and take a peek at this one)

I don’t know a lot (though I could be wrong about that), but one thing I know (and of this I’m pretty sure): All you Washingtonians out there love to snap photos of our fair state. I sort through scores of photo submissions every week for our Reader’s Lens feature. It’s an entertaining part of my job.

So, come out of the woodwork, or the woods, or your old Woody station wagon, or wherever you might be hanging out this week, and share photos from your favorite Washington state park. It’s the park system’s 100th birthday this year, and it’s worth making a big deal out of.

To get inspired, take a look at what other readers have submitted so far (click here). Nice stuff, but we’ve only just started. (Kudos to Rod Hoekstra, of Seattle, who posted 24 beautiful photos Tuesday morning!)

Now think. Do you have a great shot from the Deception Pass bridge? Maybe a picture of the kids burying Granny up to her nose in the sand at Grayland Beach? There are 117 parks (here’s a handy list), and that’s a lot of material. Send in yours and you might see it in print, even. Continue here to submit a photo…

How to submit

Email pictures to our Seattle Times Flickr account by following the instructions below:

Please put a short title of the photo, including location, in the email subject line. (Example: Fishing in Moran State Park on Orcas Island)

In the body of the email, please include:

  • A very brief caption (optional)
  • Your name and city
  • The photographer’s name, if different, so that we may properly credit the photo.

Please attach only one picture per email.

Thank you.
