Dark Morning Clouds over Seattle

In early August,, I peeked out my window before heading in to work and noticed dramatic, dark storm clouds rolling over town. I grabbed my camera and shot a few panoramas on my way in to work.

Santa Fe Summer Sunset

Red setting sun casting shades of orange and pink across layers upon layers of summer clouds in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Unfortunately I wasn’t in a spot to get a nice foreground, but the sky was fantastic.

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.

Trail to Mount Sopris, 2019

Earlier this summer, I backpacked up to Thomas Lakes in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness of Colorado and took a few photographs along the way. I’ve always loved this stretch of hike- the trail switchbacks through an open field, then crosses the top of a hill and enters a grove of aspen as it ascends to Thomas Lakes.

Cerro Bonanza, NM

While driving from Santa Fe to Albuquerque, I stopped to photograph the shifting evening light on passing clouds and Cerro Bonanza.

Looking North from Sun Mountain, Santa Fe, NM

The shapes of the clouds appeared to mimic the shapes of the foothills outside Santa Fe, New Mexico.
