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

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.

Trees and Mist

This is along the Elwha River in Olympic National Park. The sun was going down and backlit the trees with the mists behind them. The line of trees along the ridge line is a nice touch that I didn’t notice at the time.

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.

Madison Falls Picnic Area (Winter)

The trailhead parking for accessing the Elwha River road is the (small) Madison Falls parking lot. Fortunately, in the winter, the traffic is not heavy. I was returning from my hike up to the bridge (about 6 miles round trip) carrying cameras and tripod … and the mists were moving through the valley. There are a couple of guys with their dog over on the picnic table to the left. They were admiring the view below:
