Seagull in Sunburst

Seagull in Sunburst

I was still trying out the Nikon F6 (with Portra 400 film) … when I buy a used film camera, I try to get a roll or two of images shot fairly quickly, so I can determine if the camera is working well. This image shows the high contrast that results in the shadow areas going completely black. Digital images give you a lot more ability to recover some of the details in those areas …

What I like about this image is there was a seagull flying over that got ‘caught’ in the sunburst caused by the lens diaphragm. I didn’t even notice the gull at the time.

Lincoln Park Beach Views

Lincoln Park Beach View (1)

Lincoln Park in Seattle is a great place for walking. Decades ago, I lived across the street from it and it sill is a favorite. In the view above, the ferry is the Fauntleroy/Vashon/Southworth dock at Fauntleroy.

These two shots were taken from the same location. The one below is looking north towards Alki Point.

Interesting Clouds

Interesting Clouds

This is another photo that I ran across in my archive that I thought was of interest. I don’t remember the specific weather that was before or after this sunset. To me, it looks like it unstable air when there is a transition to or from stormy weather. Pleasant clouds, even if the weather wasn’t.

Sunset Thoughts

Sunset Thoughts

I was going through the photo library and seeing what I had not uploaded to the blog. I found this one of a sunset back in 2018. I don’t remember the sunset … there were so many. I can’t really say how closely this reflects the ‘actual colors’… but there wasn’t any adjustments to vibrance or saturation.

That brings up the endless question of: are the colors that I see the same as the colors you see?
