Langley photographer and visual artist Kim Tinuviel has introduced a new and unique way to see our beautiful island—with your camera and Whidbey Photo Adventures. These photos were taken during this guided photo adventure on May 25.

Kim’s inaugural tour group consisted of eleven guest photographers, nine from Whidbey, one from Seattle, and another from Salt Lake City. Photos from five appear below.
