A Ride for Peter

July 21, 2011 1 comment

Tonight , 15 riders met at Brown’s Farm and lit out for a 20 mile mountain bike ride on a trail that Peter has ridden and skied dozens of times. While he may not have been in the Methow with his buddies this evening,  pushing the big gear along the trails up to Schaefer Meadow, I think it is safe to say that Peter’s energy infused each of us in the moments when we felt an urge to let up on the pace, sit up in the saddle and relax a bit. Knowing the fight that he is in right now helped us keep the momentum high as if to will our energy to him. So on this, his 56th birthday, our collective wish for Peter is for him to find the energy to keep striving towards recovery.

Happy Birthday to you Pete…we are all with you, and we are all looking forward to many more rides together.

Toppenish AAU Swim Meet 2011

July 14, 2011 Leave a comment

I have never swum in a 50 meter pool, but from the safety of the deck…they look big. This past weekend the Methow Valley Killer Whales competed in the Toppenish AAU swim meet against a host of other teams from around central Washington in their Olympic size pool. I’ve posted my best shots on my website. Click on the slideshow below to see all of the images or go here: Weymuller Photography.

Methow Valley Killer Whales

June 28, 2011 Leave a comment

I had a great day of photographing the Methow Valley Killer Whales at the first day of the Omak Apple Invitational Swim Meet this past weekend. A couple of times I climbed up on the 3 meter diving board, went out to the very end, lay down on my belly and shot with my wide angle lens straight down as swimmers raced below. My 8 year old daughter came up to me later and asked me to stop, not because she was afraid I’d fall, but rather because she was concerned that everyone was watching me (and probably secretly hoping I’d slip and fall in the pool) instead of watching the races.
