London Bridge, Great Ocean Road

A spring storm blowing in off the Southern Ocean made long-exposure photography a challenge while I was visiting the Great Ocean Road in Australia. I ended up shooting about four replicates of each composition, using my body as a windbreak and hoping that everything wouldn’t turn out blurry.

Clouds over Islands near Auckland, NZ

On a trip to Australia in October, I stopped for a few days in New Zealand and took the ferry over to Waiheke Island. Early spring in the Auckland area is fantastic for photography- passing rain storms, moody clouds, and some sunshine. I loved it and would love to go back.

Canola Fields outside Avenel, Australia

In October, I was driving around the countryside north of Melbourne (near Avenel) and had to stop to photograph a few canola fields in full spring bloom.

Fog and Falls along Talapus Lake Trail

The light took on a silver quality as the fog thickened on my hike down from Talapus Lake so I decided to stop and photograph the stream flowing out of the lake.

Fog in Trees along Talapus Lake Trail, Part 2

A brief thinning of the fog/clouds allowed a few beams of light to penetrate the trees and shine on the moss along the Talapus Lake Trail.

Fog in Trees along Talapus Lake Trail

Autumn clouds blowing in from the Pacific push fingers of fog into the forest on the flanks of the Cascade Range. On this hike to Talapus Lake and Olallie Lake, the clouds were so low and thick that I could taste the water droplets in the air.

Lake Washington Sunrise Bulb Exposure

Back in late August, I decided to head down to the Lake Washington shore to photograph a new subject before sunrise. Passing morning clouds provided a nice linear structure in the sky for these 3-5 minute exposures.
