Seattle Skyline, Part 3

I stuck around after sunset to shoot a few panoramas of the Seattle skyline from the Jose P Rizal Bridge. The exposures that make up the individual frames of the panorama are ~20-30 seconds, so the car lights on the highway turned into lines and the clouds started to slightly blur as they moved over the city.

Seattle Skyline, Part 1

A friend asked me for a panorama of the Seattle skyline – I don’t usually photograph cityscapes, but I enjoyed shooting landscapes of the city from the Jose P Rizal Bridge during different times of day and weather (sunny, foggy, morning, sunset, etc.).

Far Western Nepal

We stopped at a hotel near the Indian border in Bhimdatta, Nepal to stay over night before coring a lake in the nearby Himalayan foothills. From the hotel roof, I photographed the line of approaching storm clouds in the evening then the surrounding town in the morning. If time had permitted, I would have explored and photographed the half-constructed cement structure in the morning (left side of second panorama)…but we had to get to work.

Bhimdatta, Nepal

This past spring, I returned to Nepal to conduct more field work before the summer monsoon. We spent a few days in May driving west from Kathmandu across the hot, humid Terai (the lowlands near the Indian border) and stopped in Bhimdatta, a border town near the Sarda River. Before heading into the Himalayan foothills to core lakes for our research project, I took a few panoramas of the town.

Washington DC Metro

In January 2014, I attended a conference in Washington DC during one of the East Coast cold snaps. Taking long-exposure photographs outside at night after the conference was miserable, so I headed into the Metro to take a few pictures. I’m a sucker for patterns and receding lines, so I decided to focus on the symmetry of the architecture in the subway system.
