If you’re ever in Seattle I encourage you to take the ferry ride from downtown to Bremerton on the Olympic Peninsula. This photo was taken at sunset about 10 minutes after we left Bremerton to return to Seattle.
One of my favorite things about photography is the the way you can abstract really cool shapes out of everyday objects. This image of converging (diverging?) angles is a a reverse monochrome of the side of the UC Berkeley Law building.
Here’s a picture I took just a few minutes ago from my iPhone (gotta love that thing!). It’s an image of the Sunriver, just before it joins the Deschutes in central Oregon.
This past Monday, as I was driving through southern Washington State, I stopped at a scenic view area and discovered that there was actually a scenic view there (go figure!). Mount Adams was out in all its glory–with almost no haze in the sky. Here’s a picture I took of Mt. Adams along with some wheat fields in the foreground. I’m posting both the original color along with a monochrome version. (NOTE: Originally I thought this was Mt. Rainier. Thanks to Shereen Stocker for getting me on the right track!)
Local boat marinas offers some amazing photo opportunities. Here’s one of a set of mast riggings at the marina in Paulbo, a small western Washington town on the Kitsap peninsula.
With this year’s drought, we haven’t had much in the way of overcast skies this summer. Last Sunday was a big exception. While we would have preferred rain, we did get some beautiful cloud formations making for an incredible sunrise!
Here’s an image from this past May. I was landing at Honolulu International Airport and managed to take this picture from my seat. This is why I never tire of flying.
