Rialto Beach Bulb Exposures, Part 1

Back in April, I spent a couple of days backpacking along the Pacific coast near Rialto Beach in Olympic National Park, WA. I already want to go back- rocky coastline full of tide pools, sea stacks, black sands, and bleached trees. More ND/bulb exposures soon!

Lake Washington Bulb Exposures, Part 5

Exploring more docks/piers along the Lake Washington shore line- this weekend, I visited the ‘T Dock’ near Madrona Beach. With the low, thick clouds, I was able to get 2-5 minute exposure times with a 10-stop ND filter, even during the middle of the morning.

Lake Washington Bulb Exposures, Part 4

I had a chance to go back to the swimming pier at Mt Baker Beach on Lake Washington near sunset- fading pink light shifting to blue hour and passing clouds, and five minute exposure times. I was there for about an hour and walked away with something like six photographs. I like the way bulb exposure photography slows things down.

Lake Washington Bulb Exposures, Part 1

Foggy/rainy evening skies provide perfect ‘grey box’ lighting for bulb exposures along the shores of Lake Washington, Seattle, WA. This was my first time shooting there, so I tried two compositions: one including the eroding stairs leading down to the water, and the other with just the swimming pier- I like the simplicity of the latter, but the stairs and shore are a nice element in the former.

Cerro Bonanza, NM

While driving from Santa Fe to Albuquerque, I stopped to photograph the shifting evening light on passing clouds and Cerro Bonanza.

The shapes of the clouds appeared to mimic the shapes of the foothills outside Santa Fe, New Mexico.
