Lake Washington Bulb Exposures, Part 1

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.

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.

Bulb exposure of the Seattle skyline shot from the Don Armeni Boat Ramp lanch in West Seattle. I tried getting this shot to be symmetrical, but it was slightly off.

Bulb Exposures from West Seattle

More from the smoky/cloudy day in August along Alki Beach and Joe Block Park. Amazing how the boat in the top image appeared completely stationary to the naked eye, but after a ~30 second exposure, it started to blur in this photograph.
