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

Misty Mountains

Misty Mountains

I really like the atmospheric effects in this image (the shades of grey fading into the distant mountains). It is one of the things I look for when shooting. That and the moments of light breaking through.

  • ISO 400 1/800 sec f/14

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.

  • Lens: Nikkor 80-400mm set at 400mm
  • ISO 200 1/32o sec f/7.1

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.

Sunrise over Twin Sisters

Sunrise over Twin Sisters

Visiting a friend just outside of the small town of Acme in NW Washington. A wonderful view from the kitchen table. (Note that this is a normal lens and basically uncropped.) Mt Baker is the bump just behind the ridge on the left side of the image. I tried various HDR images, but the clouds were moving so fast that they didn’t really turn out well.

  • Lens: Fujinon 63mm
  • ISO 160 1/950 sec f/11
