Pier at Salty’s

While photographing the Seattle skyline back in August, I walked around to Salty’s along Alki Beach and took a few photos of this pier poking out into the Bay.

Seattle Skyline Bulb Exposure, Part 1

Smoke and clouds blanketed the sky back in late August, so I headed over to West Seattle to use the neutral, low lighting to do some long exposure (bulb) photography.  Another photographer in town had mentioned this old, rusty dock, but he didn’t know exactly where it was- happy to have found it! I included two of my favorite photographs from this location.

Crystal River along CO-133

I stopped to photograph Hayes Creek Falls along Colorado-133 (south of Carbondale, just west of Mount Sopris). Water was barely trickling over the Falls, so I crossed CO-133 and shot a few bulb exposures of the water flowing around the rocks in the Crystal River. Hoping this area recovers from drought and fire season.

Spouting Rock above Hanging Lake, CO

Visiting the same location year after year forces me to try to see the same scene from new perspectives. This summer, I spent more time to the right of the falls taking a few long exposures of the water flowing out of the limestone at Spouting Rock above Hanging Lake.

Falls along Humpback Creek

After hiking up to Annette Lake and Silver Peak, I stopped at the falls along Humpback Creek to photograph the moss, rocks, and water. Clouds had moved in throughout the day, providing nice lighting for a few bulb exposures.

Seattle Skyline Bulb Exposure, Part 3

After spending a few minutes walking around scoping out Joe Block Park, I decided to try to use some of the dock/pylons to frame the Space Needle and Seattle skyline (first photograph). Although I liked the idea, I found that a later composition was more successful (second photograph).

Seattle Skyline Bulb Exposure, Part 1

I was trying to find a few good places to take bulb (long exposure) photographs of the Elliott Bay shoreline, and I came across Jack Block and Joe Block Parks in West Seattle. These former Superfund sites have been recently cleaned up and converted into parks, but they maintain some of the old dock and pylon feel (perfect for an afternoon of bulb photographs when the tide went out and exposed the rocks along the shore).

Rattlesnake Lake and Ledge

We got a few days of sunshine in the Seattle area in January, so I decided to head out to Rattlesnake Lake near North Bend to hike and take a few photographs. Around sunset, I shot a few bulb exposures of tree stumps rising out of the lake.
