Olympic National Park is a relatively short drive from Seattle and offers some amazing landscapes. It is special because it has a diverse micro climate. This creates an different weather pattern in various parts of the park. One part of the park is a rain forrest and they get a ton of rain. This is where your camera will fool you because you’ll never see greens like there are in ONP. This is a true I found along a hiking trail with some very nice light hitting it. IT was shot with a Phase One 60 mega pixel camera.
Here is another shot I did in New orleans. We were visiting a museum and next to it was an old library with all sorts of beautiful wood. I climbed the blocked off stairs of one portion of the library and turned around to see this. I loved the pulled back plastic, the backlighting and the window and railing. It just works really well.
I recently was in New Orleans scouting out locations for a workshop to be held in March 2016. I love New Orleans but for me most of my good memories are clouded as a result of partying bit too hard at Mardi Gras in my younger days. So, this time I got to see the city in a new light and clearer focus. This is an image I shot that I thought defined New Orleans. Street Cars are very popular although to me they don’t look very efficient. I liked this shot and because of the guy on the bike. I worked it a bit in post processing to get that old time look. Shot with a Fuji X-T1.
This is another of the moonrise from Antarctica. Yet this one os a tighter shot with a 600mm lens and then I did some special work on it. It turned out quite dramatic.
Ok, there are going to be a lot of iceberg images over the coming weeks, many of them in Black and White. This is a shot of two icebergs and I like the way they formed the composition. The gray sky and the blue of the bergs works well together.
Well we had a great moonrise the night before. We started to transit the Lemaire Channel and the moon was setting. It was an a amazing trip through the channel.
This year like all years when I visit Antarctica there are special defining moments. The defining moment this year was getting married on a beach with penguins and 60 close friends. Quite an adventure. This moonrise was another define moment. And, like a lot of images you’ll see this year I am doing lot of B&W. This is moonrise #12 of a lot of moonrise shots. It was quite a moment to see this moon rise at the same time the sun was setting. Quite a night. Shot with a Sony A7 II and Tamron 150-600mm zoom.
