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!

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.

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