Riding the Late Boat

leave a comment »

We caught the 1 a.m. boat back to Seattle; the very last one to leave the peninsula for the night. Missing it would have meant sleeping in the car, or driving several hours south and around. The car deck, normally bustling with automobiles, was eerily silent.

Somewhere on the Puget Sound, between Bainbridge Island and Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

Tree Abstract

I made this image several weeks ago, when Duane and I hiked out to the coast. It was perfectly sunny at the trailhead, but as we got closer and closer to our destination, it began to fog up. Seriously fog up; we were socked in by the time we could hear the ocean. I made this image about 1/4 mile from the water. We’re looking straight up into the moss-covered boughs, backlit by “the world’s largest lightbox”, as Art Wolf is fond of saying.

Thanks again for the great companionship, Duane!

What Mr. Fedex Brought

leave a comment »

And so it begins. After having packed around my mid-sized carbon tripod and full-sized head on several trips this year (and endless hours of gawking and hefting of various tripods), I decided that something a little smaller and lighter would make my ideal travel pod. Last week, Amazon/KEH obliged with this little guy. The Fedex guy showed up this morning and on a whim, I decided to make this commemorative image. I have big expectations of you, little guy!
