Lake Washington Bulb Exposures, Part 5

Exploring more docks/piers along the Lake Washington shore line- this weekend, I visited the ‘T Dock’ near Madrona Beach. With the low, thick clouds, I was able to get 2-5 minute exposure times with a 10-stop ND filter, even during the middle of the morning.

Lake Washington Bulb Exposures, Part 4

I had a chance to go back to the swimming pier at Mt Baker Beach on Lake Washington near sunset- fading pink light shifting to blue hour and passing clouds, and five minute exposure times. I was there for about an hour and walked away with something like six photographs. I like the way bulb exposure photography slows things down.

Approaching Winter Storm in New Mexico

Every winter, I try to make time to travel back to New Mexico to visit family around the holidays. I enjoy hiking up into the Sandia Wilderness area east of town to photograph winter storm clouds (and possibly snow) on the mountains. Around Christmas day (2018), I took a few panoramas of the approaching winter storm clouds off to the west over the city. More panoramas of the winter storm coming in the next few weeks.

Paradise Loop Trail on Mt Rainier

My favorite part of the Paradise Loop trail was the less busy return (counter clockwise)- wonderful views of the Mountain, mossy streams, and rolling hillsides.

Autumn Colors on Flanks of Mt Rainier

On one of the last clear weekends this fall, I took a hike around the Paradise Loop trail on Mt Rainier. I hadn’t been over to this side of the Park in clear weather- despite the crowds on the hike up to Glacier Vista and Panorama Point, the views of the glaciers and summit are spectacular (and the number of people dropped off on the east side of the loop).

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.
