blinded by the light

I left camp yesterday at 5pm to pickup a prescription in town. I got to the pharmacy by 7:30 and then grabbed a few things at Safeway. It rained sideways on me the whole way there and all the way back to the park. I stayed dry. The rain let up at about 11:30 and... Continue Reading →

Going for the moon…

The featured image is the first decent shot I got of the moon. It was about 54-56% illuminated when I took it last October. If tonight is anything like last night, practically light out, then tonight should be even brighter. Tonight's moonrise is at 18:30'ish, so I should see it pop over the ridge close...

Learnt sumthin…

Let's ponder yesterday's shoot. Remembered everything I needed. Didn't run out of battery. Wasn't injured or threatened. Didn't miss the moonrise. I learnt sumthin. The place I chose to shoot from could be described as the mid level of a valley. It was 600' down to the river and almost 1200' to the top of... Continue Reading →

Where did the time go?

Ok, this is a scheduled post. Only because I lost track of time and needed to hurry to get setup, if i wanted to catch the moonrise over Rattlesnake Ridge. The ridge is right around the foothills of the cascades and might yield a few good shots. Fingers crossed, I have a mile to hike... Continue Reading →

Ever been Thomas Edison?

While out for my trip something happened to me. I don't know what the difference is between feeling and emotion is, but it was one of them. When I headed out yesterday, I only had three objectives to complete. I wanted to find treasure, something Japanese and see what happened to the loggers. Left early,... Continue Reading →

Full Moon Lastnight

I took my first photos since February 1st of this year, last night. My last attempts at a full moon didn't work out. All of my shots last night were shot in full manual without using any presets. I was able to get a much clearer photo this way. Still working on tweaking it, now... Continue Reading →

Got a surprise today…

I went to bed early last night, around 4am. I got up today and got ready to head to the studio. On my way to the studio, I didn't want to forget anything, I went back to my truck and grabbed my tripod for shooting macros today. We had maybe 45 minutes of light left... Continue Reading →

Clear your calendar…

This post goes out to the folks in the Seattle region of Washington state.  The last time we had skies clear enough to get some good night shots, there wasn't a moon to light anything up.  Well, I have some good news.  Here is my forecast for Saturday (December 15th) night: The sun sets at...

The results from last night.

Last night was amazing!  The shots I recovered, less than amazing.  I got my tripod and other stuff setup and organized before midnight.  It was chilly out but there wasn't any wind to blow the cold down into you clothing.  There was a little fog hovering over the lake, making it look like a simmering...
