Bulb Exposures of Seattle Skyline at Sunset

Back in late April, I drove over to West Seattle to shoot a few long-exposure photographs of the Seattle skyline at sunset.

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.

Tree in Slot Canyon at Tent Rocks National Monument

Erosion has washed away the rocks and soil under the ponderosa pine hanging onto the rock walls in the main slot canyon at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. One of my favorite trees in the world to photograph.
