Pacific Northwest photographer Rob Casey's wanderlust and appreciation of the outdoors compel him to explore both familiar and out of the way places where he discovers unexpected moments that are revealed through his work.

His work portrays familiar natural landscapes with a unique perspective, as seen in his reflection shots of Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park. He also brings a refreshing sense of humor to cultural landscapes, focusing on quirky architecture and unusual roadside attractions, and showing us cross sections of life in small town Americana.

Recent Coverage:
- Death Valley National Park, California, USA
- Olympic National Park, Washington, USA
- Big Wave Surfing, Steamer Lane, Santa Cruz, California, USA
- The Pearl District and the Classic Tea Garden, Portland, Oregon, USA

February is the month of love, pancakes and this year in the UK snow! Throughout the country kids jumped with joy at the prospect of building snow and no school.
At APL they feel rather left out, as there was no proper snow in Cornwall.

Valentine's day can be expressed in a variety of ways - conceptual or classic, whichever interpretation you feel like, make sure you buy and send a card to a loved one and make them feel special, life is short, so act now.

To view the romance on our ever growing independent website of wide ranging images, please click the link:

Have a lovely month.
