Landscape and Panoramic Photography


Franklin Falls, WA

After moving to the Seattle area from southern Arizona last summer, I took a weekend walk up to Franklin Falls to photograph the South fork of the Snoqualmie River as it cascades over a 70-foot cliff. Large falls are always a treat after living in the desert.

Hoh Rainforest Stream, 2017

Nearly 10 years ago, I took a rainy solo backpacking trip up the Hoh River in Olympic National Park. I remember photographing a stream surrounded by emerald green ferns and hanging moss. Late last summer, I hiked up the same trail along the Hoh River and tried to photograph the same subject (but from a new perspective, a decade later). Overcast conditions again provided diffuse light that allowed for even lighting during longer exposures.

Fog over Rialto Beach

In September, I took a trip out to Olympic National Park and spent a day near Mora and Rialto Beach. Late summer rains blew in and cleared out the smoke from forest fires, leaving low-hanging fog over sea stacks along the coast.

Monsoon Clouds 2017, NM

Last July, I had the pleasure of seeing this spectacular thunderstorm roll over the Sandia Mountains  while I was back in New Mexico for a conference. I pulled off NM SR556 to shoot a few single frame photographs and panoramas of the passing rainstorm as it dumped precipitation on Placitas.

Seljalandsfoss, Iceland

With the blowing spray and crowds of people, taking a photograph that I was satisfied with at Seljalandsfoss was a bit daunting. I found a few brief moments when the wind shifted direction and I was able to take a bulb exposure of the falls from behind.
