We’re pretty spoiled in Seattle. Our geography and proximity to the ocean (currents) provide us with mild weather all year round. Wet maybe, but definitely tolerable. December, however, blew in with some attitude. I made this image earlier this week on a morning when the frost was thick on the ground.

Photog Notes
This is another image from my ongoing test of the Canon PowerShot S100. I made this exposure at 1/200 second with the camera set at ISO 400. To control the depth of field, I shot the lens at a wide-open f/2. What I like most is the cool tones that the auto white balance imparted. In processing the RAW image, I tried a variety of settings but nothing came as close to reproducing the light and color that day as the in-camera white balance.

I made this image earlier this year, on a trip to Singapore. Was goofing around with the bro’s new camera when the muted light made the Heliconia foliage light up to my liking. Canon 5D-II + EF 70-200mm f/4 L. JPEG from the camera, tweaked a teeny bit with Capture NX.

I made this exposure on a gorgeous Spring morning. The oblique sunlight illuminated these sprouting maple leaves for about 10 seconds and then was gone. I was lucky to have been there.

As nature and landscape photographers, we are out there, chasing the light. Frequently, she is fleeting – treating us to amazing sights before quickly moving on.

I made this exposure on a windy, rainy day. I had been busy shooting reflections. When I straighted up and looked around, I spotted this beautiful study in light and tones. I was lucky enough to make a couple of exposures before the clouds closed up again.
