“Could you get me some summer time photos from Idylwood Park?” asks my editor. Some days it’s just that easy, and I always appreciate an assignment out in the sunshine in the beautiful Pacific Northwest weather. Here are to panoramic images of the Idylwood Park swimming are that were stitched together in Photoshop. Enjoy!

Cold weather settled across the region this past week, in some areas setting record low temperatures for this time of year. Here are some scenes from the Eastside around Bellevue and Mercer Island. I will be updating this post as I get more cold weather coverage from our sister newsrooms. All photos by Reporter staff photographer Chad Coleman, except where noted.

Rain & Football

Foul weather is part of the Pacific Northwest in the fall and winter, and that can make for some interesting evenings under the lights. Newport hosted Eastlake for their homecoming game on Friday night, and as luck would have it for this photographer, some of the more nasty shooting weather in recent memory. Personally, I’d rather have the snow than the torrential down pour, but the bright side was it was a warm rain. The following images are some quick favorites that showcase the conditions for players and fans… Be sure you have an umbrella handy before viewing.
