Seattle, from Kenmore

Seattle, from Kenmore

We’ve had a very mild – sometimes even downright cold – summer so far. I made this image on one of those gray, overcast days. I was making my way around the top of the lake (Washington) when I spied this beautiful streak of low clouds making it’s way up the water. Pulled over, shot a few with the phone, then shot a few with the big guy. This is one of the ones from the big guy.

Second Beach

leave a comment »

I made this image on a gorgeous late summer morning this year. This is Second Beach in the Olympic National Park. One of the most picturesque locations on the rugged Washington coast, the beach sits on the Pacific Ocean and is bookended by breathtaking sea stacks (on the north and south ends). From the trailhead, access to the beach is a short hike through secondary rainforest. A bit steep on the way down and definitely steeper on the way out. Especially if you’re lugging a backpack full of camera and hiking gear. 😉

And yes, there is a First Beach. And a Third Beach.

Morning Commute

We’ve had a blast of arctic air these past couple of days (thank you, Canada!). Yesterday, I waited until after the morning rush hour to make my way to work. These were images that I made along the way.

Sichuan Landscape

Sichuan Landscape

I made this exposure on the drive from Yajiang to Kangding. I like it because the dramatic light accentuates the dry, desolate terrain that is typical of this part of the Sichuan high country.

長城 (The Great Wall)

leave a comment »

I guess that no first trip to Beijing would be complete without a visit to the Great Wall. It was a nice autumn day as we left Beijing. When we got to about half way, it started to sprinkle. By the time we got to Badaling (八达岭), it was pouring. We got ponchos from the enterprising vendors at the gate, tromped around a bit at the top, then decided to pack it in. Terrible weather? Yes. But also fortuitous as it allowed me to make this exposure with the rain and mist billowing across the wall. Many thanks to Lu Tao for driving us around, and for seeing to our other activities!
