Wick Sakit1,189,569Ladies and Gentlemen a year has passed already for this wonderful gathering!  This month +Drink and Click™  will be drinking and clicking at the Oregon Brew Festival ( http://www.oregonbrewfest.com )!  So come one and come all and make sure you have a safe way home!!!  +Drink and Click™ Portland, Oregon, we know how to do it right!Don't forget to add the hashtag #drinkandclickpdx  to your photos :)Psss, it might or might not be +Brian Bonham's birthday so lets make sure its a day he wont remember :)Now for the monthly challenge!-----------------------------The July Challenge is "Post Processing". The image on this post was taken near sunset in Port Aransas, TX, but the water wasn't yellow, and the sky wasn't green. I enjoyed making it appear that way, however. :-)I used Lightroom to make all the adjustments on this photo; the jumping off point was a Trey Ratcliff preset called "Turkish Blast." I made several adjustments after that, including additional graduated filters and spot brushing to achieve the final effect.

Peter From66,041The UPCOMING STARS CIRCLE –– Circle PostThe time has come to share this circle loaded with fantastic talent from all over the world. I have been doing this circle for a couple of years now but I must say that this one is the best I have ever shared! It's a circle of photographers that most certainly will fill your feed with sweet eye candy. Add it to your circles right away!Now... Make sure that you READ the whole post and don't forget to RESHARE... That is HOW we PROMOTE each other!Sidenote: If you requested inclusion but do not find yourself in the circle, you probably skipped reading the guidelines before asking. If not, the I made a mistake (which shows that I'm only human) and I apologize.For those of you not remembering the UPC, it's one of the most shared and popular circles in the history of Google+, believe it or not. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the UPC now have more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness of this circle.Now it's your turn to join the action –– but only if you have less than 7500 followers. If you do qualify, then read the guidelines below on how to be a part of the UPC.Guidelines: Want To Be A Part Of Next Month's Circle?1) Plus and comment this post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on the original post). Please state how many followers you have in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours if they have less than 7500 followers. I'll add them too.2) Reshare this post to help promote your fellow photographers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the next circle is released. If you do not reshare, I won't add you to the circle since this is a joint effort to promote new/old talent. YOU deserve to be reshared, right?Let's show some Google+ love! :)Have fun!Release DateI will release a new announcement post in due time.Have a great week everybody and enjoy all the talent!The circle stats on CircleCount.com: http://www.circlecount.com/sharedcircle/?id=z123gder0uvlth4tg22ovr2bir2qsv2k22013-11-18 11:54:53288133123157

Multnomah Tall

This is a photo of Multnomah Falls I took when I first got my Nikon D300s.  All these years it's been a solid camera and I've enjoyed the heck out of it.  It's taken countless trips to the Gorge and many other places around the world and has given me very little trouble along the way.  Kudo's to +Nikon USA for building such a solid camera.  I'm always tempted to dump it for a full frame camera but am really in no hurry.  And the day that I do switch to a full frame, this camera will stay in the family as my daughter has requested that she inherit it when I'm done with it.

Engage!

Congratulations +Stephen Baker and Kelley!!! So happy to have been part of this special day.  You kids make a great couple.

My job was to be ahead of them and set up the sign and then shoot pictures incognito as Stephen proposed to Kelley.  The plan went off without a hitch.  Obviously she said yes! The proposal happened at Hug Point on the Oregon Coast.  For the hour I waited for them to arrive the sign drew a lot of attention and many many questions.  It was fun. When I saw them coming I let the crowd of onlookers know and they all stayed to watch the moment. A little cheer went up but I think the couple was too caught up in the moment to notice.

After we headed off to another beach to do some photos.  I felt a bit like the third wheel but they really enjoyed having everything captured fresh.  I'm surprised Kelley didn't tire out early havingto carr... more »

Oneonta

At the end of the hike up Oneonta gorge is this prize.

Today I took the morning to spend with my camera.  It was getting lonely so I thought I'd spend some time with it.  We had a great time.

The hike into Oneonta is a fun one and worth every obstacle you have to maneuver through.  I almost made it all the way without getting my shorts wet but I failed at the rock wall and ended up jumping in.  Nothin' like wet cotton shorts.  Oh well, it was worth every drop of water.

Epic Gorge View

Honestly, if I hadn't drank so much coffee this morning I may have missed this. I was on my way to Hood River to shoot the kitesurfers but had to pee so bad I needed to pull over. The nearest stop on 84 was Mitchell Point. After using the provided facilities I noticed a couple heading up the nearby trail. So being the curious one I am I grabbed my gear and followed.

The trail was all up hill, covered in rock, and lined with poison oak but even after the couple gave up I persevered. Eventually I made it to the top. It was worth it. Open this photosphere and you'll see why. It is probably the best view of the Gorge I've ever had. Someday I'll return to shoot here at sunset.

Saving Eliza

I'm selling this print as part of a set of photos that a lot of photographers are offering up for sale to raise money for a gene therapy clinical trial. My goal? To sell $1000 of this print. Please help me reach my goal by forwarding this on to people who might be interested, or looking through the gallery and picking an image you'd love to own, mine or another.

The Chalet

In 1930 I doubt the builders thought that the river would eventually begin to wash away the foundation of their spectacular chalet.  Today about 2 - 3 feet of the foundation is hanging precariously over the Quinault River.  Workers are already working to move the historic building to a new location to save if for future generations to enjoy.  In the foreground of the photo you can see the destruction that the erosion has had on the surrounding trees.  

The chalet sits in the Enchanted Valley located on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State not far from the town of Forks, WA (for you Twihards our there).  This was one of the only times we had clouds on our backpacking trip up the valley.  They moved in fast and left just as quick so I didn't have a lot of time to shoot with them around.  Despite that, it was a beautiful place that I'm glad I made thetrek i... more »

Enchanted Valley

I don't know about you but I'm a huge fan of the photosphere. The ability to take a full 360° panorama that others can view as if they are standing where I stood is just cool. As a flat image its pretty boring but if you open the photosphere and navigate around it is dynamic.

This one I took at our campsite in the Enchanted Valley. It was my favorite spot we camped. Situated along the Quinault River nestled under a patch of trees it provided the perfect spot to relax and enjoy a beautiful view of Anderson Pass.

The Enchanted Valley

I'm sitting down for a big breakfast in Port Angeles after spending almost a week backpacking in The Olympic National Forest. The week was fun and the Enchanted Valley was absolutely stunning. During the week I took some Photospheres on my +OnePlus. This one was taken at the chalet that is currently at risk of falling into the Quinault river.

Butte Creek Blur

It's not often that I process a photo two different ways but this is one that I have.  The original processing I show the waterfall in focus and the rest of the scene is blurred which adds depth to the shot.  I felt that the processing used on that image gave the falls all the focus and the rocks and moss less.  Well this scene is so amazing and the rocks and moss are such a big part of that I decided to process it again giving the falls less of the limelight and giving more focus to the rocks and moss.  Yeah, I know you'd say that I could leave it all in focus but it felt a bit flat that way.  So with the help of +onOne's Focal Point I processed this twice.   

The original shot can be seen here https://plus.google.com/u/0/+BrianBonham/posts/Fe7Ykthjbh3

King of the Pool

One of my favorite parts of parenting is seeing the passions grow in my kids.  My daughter has a passion for the theater; she loves the technical side and loves being on stage.  My son is a fish.  Loves water.  He swims every chance he gets and is currently taking advanced lessons and is part of the junior lifeguard training at our local pool.  On the days he's not doing those things he still asks if he can go to the pool to swim.   This was taken yesterday at my parents house while we were cooling off in the hot sun.  In the hours we were there he barely got out of the pool.  It's not a big one but that didn't matter to him, it's water so he was in it.

Playing with Mable

I caught a moment of pure joy as +Tessa Kit Zawadzki got her chance to play with Mable, +Tana Teel's favorite camera.  Like a kid in a candy store I don't think the smile left Tessa's face the whole time she played with this beauty of a camera.

Rock for the Stream

Sometimes I spend too much time looking at the overall scene trying to find the best way to capture the beauty of a site all the while missing the details of what makes it beautiful.  On this particular day at Butte Creek Falls I had the place to myself for hours so I took the time and tried some different things.  In this shot the waterfall was in the background but wasn't what I chose to focus on.  Instead I centered on the rock with the most moss covering in the stream and set it apart from all the others.  I loved the color of the moss set against the water and rock and wanted to give it the focus.

Just A Short Hike

If you ever find yourself visiting Big Spring Creek Falls in Washington don't be satisfied by the main view from the road.  Just a short walk up the rough trail will reveal more of the beauty hidden within the woods.  For this trip this is about as high as I ventured but I know there's more beyond what I saw.  Next time I'll venture a little further up to see what's hidden in the trees beyond this shot.

Fishing Trillium

This weekend gets chalked up as a great one.  Oregon Brewers Festival with good friends, meeting +Gretchen Chappelle and her adorable daughter in person, shooting with some great Google+ people, and a chill Sunday brewing beer and smoking cigars.  No complaints at all. 

This shot was taken at Trillium Lake at sunrise as the mist crawled across the lake and the sun was peaking over the trees.  I got up at 3am to pick up +Brad Sloan so we could meet up with +Brian Matiash, +Nicole S. Young and Gretchen at the lake.  Low and behold we show up and +Scott Jarvie, +Lars Gustafson and +Scott Nikiel were there.  I swear the Google+ community of photographers is awesome!  The only thing missing here was a red canoe...

The Light Shines In

One advantage (and challenge) to shooting on a partly cloudy day is the different light situations that confront you during the shoot.  I prefer a nice light cloud layer that diffuses the light but sometimes the clouds combined with direct light make for some interesting light patterns.  That was the situation while shooting Big Spring Creek Falls last weekend.

This shot was taken as the sun was peaking out from the clouds which gave some contrast over the scene.  With a little help from Color Efex Pro and Lightroom here's the image I ended with.

Big Spring Creek Falls

Totally ended my three day weekend on a high note. I started it under my Jeep doing some maintenance and ended it up in The Gifford Pinchot National Forest with my son and +Brian Matiash shooting this magnificent waterfall. Tomorrow it's back to the office because there are bills to pay.

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Seattle's Super Moon

During last weekends visit to Seattle the "super" moon took place.  Here's a shot of it coming over Seattle's port.  I hadn't done my homework and didn't know this was the night for it otherwise I would have run to one of a number of other locations for a better or more interesting shot of it.  But the night was fun anyway and the good people I was hanging with showed me a good time.

Check out this gorgeous shot of Haystack Rock by +Brian Hiltz.  So well done!  Great job Brian.

Not my photo - please leave your love on his original post

"Cannon Beach Under the Stars"

A popular and beautiful destination along the Oregon Coast is Cannon Beach. With its towering sea stacks and rock formations scattered along the shoreline, it’s no wonder why it’s a favorite to so many. At the end of March during my last visit, most days to the beach were overcast and foggy, but on this particular evening the skies were clear and the stars were plentiful. I was absolutely amazed at how quickly the stars appeared, as the sun had just barely set below the horizon when I made this image using a single thirty second exposure.

"For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream."  ~ Vincent Van Gogh

Thanks for looking!

Morning Light

From my visit to The Gifford Pinchot National Forest last weekend comes this shot of Lower Lewis River Falls.  A must  see for anyone visiting the area. This was taken from just in front of one of the viewing platforms.  It's a bit of a drive from Portland but one I will make many more times in the future.  Besides this falls there is a plethora of beautiful sites to see in the area.

Lower Lewis Close Up

Friday morning I had the day off, like most others, so I took off at the buttcrack of dawn to explore some waterfalls that I'd never seen nor heard of. Because of some old information about Big Creek Falls I ended up at Lower Lewis River Falls which was not on my list for the day. Since I was there I decided to scout it for future shoots. The sun was just peeking over the trees so the overall scene wasn't all that favorable for the shot I wanted so I zoomed in. Someday soon I'll go back and shoot this falls in all its glory.

River City

I've shot this scene a lot.  Maybe too much... maybe not enough.  But part of me just wants to get the ultimate pano of Portland's awesome waterfront during a sunset.  This one from a few nights ago wasn't bad but it was a bit one sided.   Years and years ago I witnessed a sunset over the city that was just spectacular, I can still see it in my head... the sky was lit up with pink and purple and a touch of orange within rolling clouds coming from the West.  Back then I wasn't shooting very often and I didn't even own a cell phone so in my head is the only way to see it.  I want to get that sunset in this scene one day.  I will get it... I will...

Riding Free

There is something about a motorcycle that is just freeing. I just bought new tires for mine and took it out today to break them in. I had no destination, no schedule, and nobody with me. It was just me, the bike and the road. A quick ride to knock the wax off the tires became a lot longer ride once I hit the freeway. I found some roads I'd never ridden before and just kept going until my gas light turned on. I made one stop in front of this garage to get a quick shot with my iPhone but other than that it was all go time.

Butte Creek Falls

Here's another look at Butte Creek Falls from my visit there last weekend. I had to cuddle up with the side of the trail and get creative with the tripod to get the upper leaves into this shot. There was a breeze so I ended up holding the branches as still as I could.

Hot Tam

A couple years ago a swarm of photographers came to Portland and we had a blast.  One of the things we did was a shoot at a restored gas station in SE Portland.  +Kelly-Shane Fuller brought his old car and a ton of camera gear.  A few of the ladies in the group brought their sexy and let us shoot them.  Here's a shot I got of +Tamara Pruessner in her hot little dress she brought just for the occasion.

Butte Creek Falls

As this was my first time ever seeing this waterfall and had the place to myself all morning I spent some time playing around with angles, compositions, and exposures.  I think I came away with some decent shots and will eventually get around to posting some more.  This one grabbed my attention first so I processed and stylized it first.   The falls reminds me of the curtain on a stage and it looks like it could be pulled back at any moment.

Multnomah Tall

This is a photo of Multnomah Falls I took when I first got my Nikon D300s.  All these years it's been a solid camera and I've enjoyed the heck out of it.  It's taken countless trips to the Gorge and many other places around the world and has given me very little trouble along the way.  Kudo's to +Nikon USA for building such a solid camera.  I'm always tempted to dump it for a full frame camera but am really in no hurry.  And the day that I do switch to a full frame, this camera will stay in the family as my daughter has requested that she inherit it when I'm done with it.

Oh hey Bri, GET OUTTA MY SHOT!

Haha, just kidding.  I took this shot with him in it on purpose to give a little perspective of the size on what is left of the Peter Iredale wreck. Because the sand shifts with the tides year to year the amount of the wreck that is visible changes.  Since +Brian Matiash is in the shot I thought I'd play in the +Nik Collection by Google and do a little touch up with the Silver Efex Pro and make this a contrasty black and white image.

On that day the Peter Iredale ran ashore on the Oregon Coast and was abandoned as lost.  Since then it has been the subject of many photos.  I was happy to have captured this one last week as the tide rolled in.

Fairy Falls

Yesterday I met up with +Todd Sipes to give him a quick tour of the Gorge.  I made him work for it.  Although it's a short hike to Fairy Falls it is a mile up hill the whole way.  I think we were both relieved to finally get to the falls.  This falls isn't the biggest, a meager 20 footer, but it is one of the prettiest.  I already look forward to coming back to it to do some more shots maybe with a model :-).  It'd be a fun location for senior portraits.

Just You And Me

Last night I met up with +Brian Matiash +Nicole S. Young +Jeffrey Yen and +Craig Colvin to shoot the Peter Iredale shipwreck outside of Warrenton, OR. At first we doubted we'd get much color from the sunset bet then BAM the color came shining through. Here I was shooting the water coming in as the shipwreck sat behind me. In the distance there is a couple walking away from me and the gaggle of photographers focusing on the wreck. I got the impression that they were there for each other and not the site that most come to see.

Light Shines In

On the way to Death Valley in our four wheel Kia cough cough we rented in Las Vegas +Amy Heiden,  +Ricardo Lagos and I saw this scene developing on the horizon and immediately pulled over to try and capture the amazing light rays.  The light coming through the clouds lighting up the hillsides was just spectacular.  I was zoomed in at 200mm to get this shot.  I touched it up a bit in Lightroom with some final punches made in Color Efex Pro 4.

Trillium Sunrise

A couple mornings ago +Nicole S. Young and I got up at the butt-crack of dawn to capture the sunrise at Trillium Lake. The light of this sunrise lasted for for just a minute or two but it was worth the early morning and long drive to be able to see it happen.  Afterwards I thought of a few other locations I would have liked to have shot it from but in the end I had made my choice and am happy to live with it.

The light of this sunrise lasted for for just a minute or two but it was worth the early morning and long drive to be able to see it happen.  Afterwards I thought of a few other locations I would have liked to have shot it from but in the end I had made my choice and am happy to live with it.

I've seen infrared photos many times before and have found them interesting. But this shot by my friend +Nicole S. Young is just over the top awesome! The use of the infrared just makes her subject pop in such a literal dreamy way.

Infrared at the Dog Park

I have always wanted to try out infrared photography, and so I decided that now was a good time! I have a IR-converted camera from +LensRentals.com, and took it out to the dog park with +Kodak Matiash this morning. I had a ton of fun with it and I'm seriously considering converting one of my own after my rental period is up. :)

Post-Processing: Edited using +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, +onOne Software, and +Adobe Photoshop. Color added back to Kodak using Photoshop.

Note: I'll post more information about this camera and my post-processing methods over on +Photofocus® in a few weeks.___I've seen infrared photos many times before and have found them interesting.

Happy 17th Birthday Brianna!

Today I celebrate my 17th year as a parent.  On this day 17 years ago this beautiful girl exited my wife and entered my life.  She is my oldest, most favorite daughter, and she has grown into a wonderfully goofy and beautiful young lady and I am super proud to be her dad.

_I love you girly! _

Down This Old Road

Picture the scene... it's 1975, I'm riding my motorcycle through Death Valley and I pull out my Nikon FT2 to capture the road I'm traveling.   To the right is nothing.  To the left is nothing. The clouds are rolling in like there's a storm approaching but there's no wind to speak of.  There is stillness and quiet.  The brown in the hills is like a lifeless form with no voice.  I am alone.  I ride on.  It's not the destination I seek, only the journey.

/<scene>

So, fantasy aside, with the announcement by +Brian Matiash of the release of Niks Analog Efex Pro v2 I had to have some play time with the new features.  This image wasn't taken in 1975, nor was it taken with a FT2, it was taken last year with my digital Nikon D300s.  Yes, it is in Death Valley, which is the most truth in my little fiction above. But I wa... more »

Twin Peaks

A pano view of a sunrise over San Francisco.  This was taken a while back and I almost forgot I had it.  I know this is a popular place to shoot and after being there to witness this view I totally get why people get up early and crowd this area.  It is a beautiful scene.  The fog is like a soft blanket that rolls in to caress the city.

For you fans of Game of Thrones, if you're not watching Vikings on The History Channel you're missing out.

Special Note: It may be on the History Channel but it is definitely not for children nor the faint at heart.
