Foggy Kayaking

Foggy Kayaking

I was going through some older photos and seeing what I had missed. Going back and reviewing images from months or years ago is a great way to not only refresh memories, but you can see images that didn’t strike you at the time because you had preconceived ideas about the image you were expecting.

This is Ellis Cove off of Budd Bay in Olympia.

Camera: Nikon AW120

Foggy Winter Scene

Foggy Winter Scene

This was from the same day as the previous post (Sunny Winter Scene) and about an hour later. The clouds came up the mountain and everything was totally socked in. Not much to shoot except the outlines of trees. So, I shot outlines of trees. This is not a black and white image, by the way. There just isn’t any color making it through the fog.

Dock and Crane, Indian Island

Dock and Crane, Indian Island

This is looking across the bay at Port Townsend to the pier where they load/unload naval ships. There was quite a bit of rain shower activity and low clouds. It created an interesting visual. I changed this to black and white, but couldn’t tell much of a difference.

Upper Dungeness

Upper Dungeness

I was working on an exercise that consisted of taking photos that I originally rejected and seeing if I could ‘make’ anything of them. This was one of the rejects … the original image was taken by mistake while I was moving the camera and was tilted at about a 45 degree angle. The foreground is a little soft … not sure if it was a camera movement issue or just a focusing issue. I liked the end result, though. It reminds me of the photos I used to take with my old box camera when I was a kid.

Morning Mists

Morning Mists at Camp Handy

We were hiking out from our trip on the Upper Dungeness Trail and stopped for the evening. Just after dinner, it started to sprinkle and it continued through the evening. We spent 13 hours or so in our tents.

When we got up in the morning, the rain had stopped and there were wonderful mists on the ridges on the west side of the Dungeness.

This is another shot from the Madison Falls parking lot in the Olympic National Park along the Elwha River. I really liked the pink blush of new growth on the tops of the alders… that’s what attracted me to taking the shot. But then I changed it in B&W and liked it even more. I use the Lightroom plugin version of Silver Efex Pro2 for the initial conversion to B&W and then use Photoshop for detail enhancements.

Krause Bottom, Elwha River Valley

This was the afternoon of New Year’s Eve, 2001. We had hiked up the Elwha Valley and visited Krause Bottom in the Olympic National Park. This was before they removed the dam to return the upper river to salmon habitat. While it didn’t rain on us, there were low clouds/fog/mist that gave the valley a mysterious look. We had camped at the upper end of the valley a couple times and hiked through several more … it is always a special.
