An Outy

Photos of Thor's Well almost always depict it with the water flowing back in. I thought it would be fun to share one with the water exploding out of it. I would love to hear your thoughts.

Haceta Head Lighthouse

I guess enough with the Milky Way for a while and we'll head back to the Oregon Coast. This one is of Haceta Head lighthouse. Let me know if you like the change off of Milky Way shots for a while.

Old Log House Under the Milky Way

Click on photo to view enlarged.

From my latest foray into the darkness.  This one was taken yesterday morning around 1 a.m. in the mountains about 50 miles from my house.  It's tough to find dark skies and even here we had some kind of light over there on the left side.  Anyway this photo was a lot of fun to make and edit.

Milky Way Panorama


Click on photo to view enlarged.
This is obviously another of my Milky Way shots over Silver Lake.  This one is a panorama consisting of 5 vertical images stitched together in Lightroom.

I'm trying to get a gauge on how these Milky Way shots are received.  I love making them.

The Milky Way

You'll want to click and see full size.

I'll confess that a big part of the reason I bought a full frame camera last fall was so I could do night photography, but I've had very little chance to try it . . . until last night, when Royce Bair hosted a meetup session where he, I and about 80 "friends" met at Silver Lake in Brighton, Utah and did some night photos. I have still got a lot to learn, but I was pretty pleased with the results. Some other photographers who we never met but heard them in the dark, asked if we minded if they did a little light painting and so I thought I'd just open my shutter and see the results. I have no idea what they got but I thought mine turned out pretty cool. THANKS AGAIN ROYCE and the anonymous light painters too!

Get a Grip

Click on photo to view enlarged.
Since I didn't pay very close attention in school, I didn't know that we had rain forests in the good old USA. I was directed to this one which is pretty close to Olympic National Park in Washington. I thought these tree roots wrapped around an old tree were fascinating.

More Weeds

Click on photo to view enlarged.

While waiting for the Ferry from Coupeville, on Whidby Island to Port Townsend, Washington I decided to wander around and look for something to take photos of. These reminded me of a weed we had around our yard growing up that we would break off and make whistles out of and I thought they were kind of pretty.

On a compositional note, if you click on the photo and look at it enlarged you will see that the one in the front center is slightly out of focus. That was intentional as I want to have the shorter and greener one to be the main point of focus. Notice how your eye automatically want to go to the one that is the sharpest focus.

This Must be Holland

Click on photo to view enlarged.

No, it's not, (Holland, that is).  It's still Skagit county Washington, but it is almost as pretty as Holland.  You're probably getting tired of Tulips by now, but I did get some I like, so I keep sharing them.

On the Tulip Farm


Click on photo to view enlarged.

Walking around the Tulip farm in Washington I found this all set up as if it was done on purpose. Do you think it adds interest or distracts? When I took the photo I thought "Perfect", now looking at it I'm not as certain. I look forward to hearing your opinion, but be sure you click on it to see it full size first. Thanks!
