Pylons and Fog in Elliott Bay, WA

I’ve been waiting for thick fog to obscure the Seattle skyline so I could shoot some bulb exposure of the structures along Elliott Bay- I got what I was wishing for in late October. This is probably one of my favorite abstract photos that I’ve taken in the last few months.

Hazy and Clear views of Mt Sopris

After the fires this summer, views of Mount Sopris from Carbondale and the surrounding area  were sadly hazy and smoky. A few evening rain clouds blew in over Sopris, but there wasn’t enough precipitation or wind to fully clear the air, leaving the views of one of my favorite mountains slightly obscured.

Fortunately, on my last night in the area, the winds changed direction and pushed some of the smoke out of the region. It felt like I’d put on glasses- the view of Mount Sopris appeared crisp and well-defined as the setting sun cast a pink glow on the flanks of the mountain.

Meltwater from Glaciers on Rainier

After a quick hike from the White River camping area to Sunrise on Mt. Rainier, I used a Neutral Density filter to take a bulb exposure panorama of the grey meltwater of the White River on my way out of the park.
