Bulb Exposures of Seattle Skyline at Sunset

Back in late April, I drove over to West Seattle to shoot a few long-exposure photographs of the Seattle skyline at sunset.

Cerro Bonanza, NM

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

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

Monsoon Clouds 2017, NM

Last July, I had the pleasure of seeing this spectacular thunderstorm roll over the Sandia Mountains  while I was back in New Mexico for a conference. I pulled off NM SR556 to shoot a few single frame photographs and panoramas of the passing rainstorm as it dumped precipitation on Placitas.

Railroad Tracks along Highway 26

I liked the abstract feel of the curving railroad tracks in the foreground, desert scrub in the landscape, and gathering clouds in the sky.

Water Tower Along Highway 26, NM

I frequently drive between Tucson, AZ and Albuquerque, NM to visit family. While driving to Hatch from I-10, I always notice a lone water tower standing over the railroad tracks along Highway 26. Last summer I finally stopped to photograph the structure and the railroad tracks. An approaching monsoon storm had also kicked up a dust storm over the wind farm across the road.
