A little rainbow action over the Grand Canyon for your Sunday  

I usually take a couple of weeks off in December so I just wanted to wish everyone a healthy and happy holiday season. Thanks for all your support and I will be back just before the New Year.

Calm afternoon at Marine Park, Bellingham, Washington

Well it has been a loooong time since I've posted. I really don't have any excuse other than I've been busy being a dad. More to come and I promise to be more regular in the future....regular in posting I mean....that came out wrong....oh geez....

What do you expect...my humor is geared for 7 year olds :)

So I haven't been posting much this summer. Truth be told, I haven't picked up my DSLR much lately. I've been having too much fun spending the summer with my family and I've been thinking of photography more like a chore and less of something I look forward to doing.

I recently and reluctantly purchased an iPhone so I could check my email and take the occasional family snapshot. A funny thing happened though. The more I used the camera on the iPhone, the more I wanted to shoot with it. I enjoy the spontaneity it gives me. I love editing images while out on the deck, at the beach, under a tree, or lying in bed. I dig exploring the vast multitude of apps that are out there and all the looks and styles they provide. And most importantly, I certainly don't miss carrying around the 15 pounds of camera gear every time I want to take a picture.

So I haven't been posting much this summer. Truth be told, I haven't picked up my DSLR much lately. I've been having too much fun spending the summer with my family and I've been thinking of photography more like a chore and less of something I look forward to doing.

I recently and reluctantly purchased an iPhone so I could check my email and take the occasional family snapshot. A funny thing happened though. The more I used the camera on the iPhone, the more I wanted to shoot with it. I enjoy the spontaneity it gives me. I love editing images while out on the deck, at the beach, under a tree, or lying in bed. I dig exploring the vast multitude of apps that are out there and all the looks and styles they provide. And most importantly, I certainly don't miss carrying around the 15 pounds of camera gear every time I want to take a picture.

But all the time there was this nagging voice in the back of my head telling me I needed to pick up my "real camera" and create some "real photography". Since the idea of lugging all the gear out sounded to me like nails on a chalkboard, days between posts became weeks which stretched into the month since the last time I shared something on my photo page. Real photographers couldn't share cell phone picks as real art....right? Then today a thought suddenly popped into my head.....

Why not?

If lugging around the DSLR is not making me happy and shooting with the iPhone is, then why not just let the "pro" camera gather a little dust on the shelf for a while and just have some fun playing with photography again. Let's see what this little magic box can do.

So you will notice a little change in my photography for a while. Some of the images may seem familiar and some may be radically different than what I have shared before. Some you may love and some you may hate. I'm not exactly sure where this is all going but I'm excited about shooting again.

Through the years I've been asked a huge range of questions but the most common by far is "What camera should I buy?" I always gave the same response.....The one you will always carry with you.

I think it's time I start listening to my own advice :)

We've had an incredibly long stretch of sunny warm weather in the Pacific Northwest....so long that I'm almost expecting it. When I woke up yesterday morning and the radar showed thunderstorms pounding the mountains, I had a moment of panic. We packed up our rain gear and headed out for our planned hike anyway. I think the photo explains how the weather turned out :)

I dragged my son out of bed yesterday morning at 5:30 and drove him up to Paradise on Mount Rainier. He may have been hating life at 5:30 but he sure was loving it a couple of hours later. So proud of him...he rocked the Skyline Trail without a complaint. The master plan to make him a Jedi Hiker is coming together :)

After I dropped my son off at school yesterday, I took advantage of one of my last days of freedom by hiking by myself up to Lake Serene. Don't get me wrong....I love hiking with my son but.... :)

As I started the climb, a group of four teens literally ran past me. There was a time when I would have sped up and tried to keep pace but that thought rarely enters my mind anymore. A quarter mile further on, I caught them resting by the side of the trail. A quarter mile after that they sprinted past me again. The leap frogging continued until they turned off to the waterfall and I kept climbing to the lake. On the way back down, I passed them one by one plodding up to the lake. I stopped and chatted with the first young man for a second....he seemed genuinely surprised that I had already spent nearly an hour at the lake and was on my way down already. We parted and I ran in to the rest spread out... more »

I let them know they were almost there but I'm sure they knew I was chuckling inside....classic tortoise and the hare

Sunset on Mount Adams at Takhlakh Lake, Washington

Wow..it's been a while since I posted. A little tendinitis in my shoulder has been keeping me from shooting but I'm going to try to start editing some older images and sharing them. Most of the time, I am hoping for clouds to bounce the colors around at sunset but what should you do when the sky is perfectly clear? Just turn away from the sunset, face the other way and look for something really tall to catch that last light of day :)

Sunshine is great but storms are even better...

You can have your sun drenched beaches and warm sand between your toes. I never feel more alive then when the wind blows, the waves are rushing in and the clouds are racing across the sky.

Sand Dunes near Owens Lake, California.

When I lived in California, I used to make an annual trip from my home in the Bay Area over to Death Valley. Along the way, I passed a small scraggly set of sand dunes next to Owens Lake. For years, I thought about stopping but never did. If I was on my way to the park, I was too anxious to get to the "real" sand dunes and if I was on my way home, well I was too tired and ready for a shower. Finally, a day came when I wasn't in a hurry, the sky was blue and a fresh dusting of snow capped the Sierra Nevada....It was too nice not to stop. I spent an hour during the midday wandering around the area. I wouldn't describe the scenery as "epic" but it sure was pretty.

Sand Dunes near Owens Lake, California.

When I lived in California, I used to make an annual trip from my home in the Bay Area over to Death Valley. Along the way, I passed a small scraggly set of sand dunes next to Owens Lake. For years, I thought about stopping but never did. If I was on my way to the park, I was too anxious to get to the "real" sand dunes and if I was on my way home, well I was too tired and ready for a shower. Finally, a day came when I wasn't in a hurry, the sky was blue and a fresh dusting of snow capped the Sierra Nevada....It was too nice not to stop. I spent an hour during the midday wandering around the area. I wouldn't describe the scenery as "epic" but it sure was pretty.

Sometimes less is more...

All around me were these gorgeous trees but I couldn't seem to come up with a composition to save my life. I left the camera on the tripod and sat down in the middle of the forest. What was it that I really loved about this scene? What was it in this grove of trees that really caught my eye? It only took a moment...the tree trunks. It was all about the tree trunks.

I almost didn't even stop the car as we drove over Boulder Creek. It was close to freezing, late and we were tired but I caught a glimpse of the stream out of the corner of my eye and backed the car up. It wasn't an amazingly dramatic scene....but it sure was pretty.

Stormy Afternoon at Birch Bay State Park, Washington 

I wandered up the shoreline last Sunday to Birch Bay.  It was my first time in the area and it won't be my last...I was pretty impressed with the photo opportunities.  The sky was dull and featureless for most of the day but late in the afternoon the haze dissipated and the clouds began to show definition. I was already in love with the scene but when a little hole in the clouds allowed a pop of brightness to seep through, well that was the icing on the cake :)

4 minute exposure at Larrabee State Park, Washington 

Sunday was a big day for me...my 50th birthday. I'd like to say I made the transition into my next decade gracefully but, truth be told, I was a moody SOB for most of December. As the month rolled on, I accomplished less and less. I gave up shooting new images, I gave up processing images, and finally gave up posting images as well. What I did do really well was to drive my wife and son crazy by hanging around the house getting nothing done.

The dreaded day finally arrived and I suddenly didn't feel so crappy anymore. I wouldn't say I felt great, but more....sort of relieved...and surprisingly focused. I'm really looking forward to the next ten years. Several great ideas have been swirling around in my head and I'm planning on devoting this stretch of my life to getting those projects done...and sharing them... more »

Several great ideas have been swirling around in my head and I'm planning on devoting this stretch of my life to getting those projects done...and sharing them with everyone when they get under way. Hopefully some ideas will work and probably some will fail but I'm not leaving my 50s without trying each and every one of them.

I captured this image on Sunday while the Hawks were busy winning another division championship. No hating on me please...I listened to the 2nd half on the radio :)

A little rainbow action over the Grand Canyon for your Sunday

Cascades on Boulder Creek in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, Washington.

My son and I took off for an "Adventure Day" up into the Cascade Mountains on Sunday. We saw the washout on the Index-Galena Road, scored a couple of trains rolling through Skykomish and tossed some snowballs at Jack Pass on Beckler Road. On the way back, we stopped to check out this little cascade alongside the road. All-in-all, a pretty awesome day :)

Misty morning in Skagit County, Washington

My little guy broke his thumb last week. He's perfectly fine so no need for sympathies, but the brace has put a bit of a damper on our adventures together (and hence my shooting). The upside to all this is I had some time to work through my backlog of images that needed to be edited. How I missed this gem from a couple of years ago is beyond me :)

Picnic Point.....

If you've been following my photography for more than a month, you probably realize that Picnic Point on the Puget Sound is somewhat of an obsession with me due to its amazing shoreline and, to be perfectly honest, the fact that it's less than a ten minute drive from my house.

I sometimes worry that I will tire of shooting there, but I never fail to come back with something new. So the question has to be asked...is it better to wander the world and come away with a few choice images from each area or should a photographer concentrate on a few locations and explore them deeply?

Luckily, I don't have the luxury to ponder that question, I have to get dinner on the table for my family every evening and that means you haven't seen the last of Picnic Point.

The clouds were pretty thick over the Puget Sound late yesterday afternoon but the satellite photos kept showing a hole in the clouds offshore to the southwest.  Went down to the beach thinking it might be pretty good and it was...love it when it works out like that :)

Day 5 of the Black and White Challenge...The final day!! I'm sharing a photo of my son taken years ago simply because even nature photographers get to post pics of their kids every once in a while :)

The goal of the Black and White Challenge is to post a new black and white image for 5 consecutive days (either new or old), tag the person who nominated you and find a new person to challenge every day. Thanks to +Michael Riffle  for dragging me into this.

Finally I'd like to nominate my friend Jerry Costello. Because I know he has a ton of extra time on his hands ;)

Day 4 of the Black and White Challenge and I'm sharing a capture from Washington Park in Anacortes, Washington.  I'm starting to crave some color but I know I can finish the week out :)

Day 3 of the Black and White Challenge and I'm sharing an image of a waterfall on Denny Creek in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. I've posted a couple of images from this location before (including some monochrome) but this is a new composition

For Day 2 of the Black and White Challenge, I'm sharing an image that I always thought might work in monochrome. I captured this a couple of years ago along the banks of the North Fork of the Skykomish River in Washington.

Well I thought I was going to escape under the radar but +Michael Riffle must have noticed that I hadn't been nominated for the 5 day black and white challenge. The goal is to post a new black and white image for 5 consecutive days...either new or old, tag the person who nominated you and find a new person to challenge every day.

For Day 1 I am sharing this image I captured a couple of weeks ago while walking around in Everett. I tend to think black and white images are somewhat arty by nature so I will do my best to come up with a suitable title. I shall call it.... "Building Next To The Jail" :)

For my first victim, I am going to nominate +Michael Mixon

Is there anything better than a mossy old-growth forest on a cool damp day?  I think not :)

Last week, I managed to squeeze a weeknight shoot in with my son after school, homework, and dinner and got rewarded with a storm crossing the Puget Sound  It's looking a decent again for tonight...I'm thinking these Monday evening shoots might have to become a habit :)

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I just wanted to give a quick shout out to everyone who takes a look at, +1s and/or comments on my work. It is humbling to realize that so many people see and enjoy my images.

I also want to thank the people that take the time comment on my work on a regular basis...you know who you are  Those couple of moments you take to type in your thoughts really do keep me motivated to keep on shootin' !!

For tonight's share: A mossy forest alongside the North Fork Skokomish River, Olympic National Park, Washington.

The sunny summer days were nice but this is weather that makes you feel ALIVE!!

The evening was looking pretty interesting last night so I rushed through homework with my son, cooked up a quick and elegant early dinner (OK...it was hot dogs and beans but don't judge) and flew out the door with dishes in the sink (OK...strewn all over the counter top but luckily my wife is away for the week.)

We were fortunate to be sandwiched between storm cells to the east and this one to the west. The storm slowly moved out over the Puget Sound and finally got close as it started to get dark. As the light faded,  I put the camera down and snuggled with my son on a bench watching the mini wall cloud as it rolled over the beach. We braced ourselves against the gust front and only left when the rain drops started to pelt us. On thedrive home, we were treated to a lightning show...a pretty rare... more »

All in all, my son seemed to think it was a pretty awesome way to spend an evening. Beats watching the Lego Movie for the millionth time :)

The Seattle Library elicits both praise and criticism. Many love the original style and whimsy while others seem to see it as a overdone and pretentious. Either way, it provides endless opportunities for photographic compositions :)
