Snoqualmie Falls in Black and White

Shooting a few long-exposure photographs of Snoqualmie Falls has been on my bucket list, so I decided to check the location off my list last weekend- rainy/cloudy conditions were in the weather forecast, but the sun started poking through the clouds as I got there. Winter sun is usually a relief in the Pacific Northwest, but not for long-exposure photography.

Princes Pier, Melbourne

On a trip to Australia in October, I had limited time for photography. I tried going to Princes Pier on a moody, foggy morning, but my GPS stopped working. I gave it another try a few days later, and the clouds parted as I arrived- beautiful weather, but bad for long-exposure photography. Here’s what I could do with the conditions.

Clouds over Islands near Auckland, NZ

On a trip to Australia in October, I stopped for a few days in New Zealand and took the ferry over to Waiheke Island. Early spring in the Auckland area is fantastic for photography- passing rain storms, moody clouds, and some sunshine. I loved it and would love to go back.

Ridge and Clouds in Olympic National Park

This is one of my favorite photographs from a recent trip to Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park, WA. Clear days are fantastic, but I love the atmosphere created by cloudy, foggy, partially obstructed views.

Cloud over Stuart Range from Navaho Peak

Earlier this summer, I hiked up to Navaho Pass and Peak. From the peak, the view of the clouds spilling over the Cascades onto the Stuart Range was fantastic. More panoramas and single frame photographs soon.

Thomas Lakes and Mount Sopris, 2019

Blue hour bulb/ND panorama of snow fields, cirque, and summit of Mt Sopris from Upper Thomas Lake at Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness, White River National Forest. It was hard to get the exposure right as the light was fading- you can probably tell that the panorama gets darker from left to right as I left the exposure times the same for each of the frames in the shot. The second panorama is from the following morning- I used a B&W conversion to try to emphasize the texture of the rocks and clouds.
