Drink and Click™ Seattle, Washington110Our next Drink and Click event is happening in the fun & funky Ballard neighbourhood of Seattle. Tons and tons of bars, coffee shops, restaurants, and street photography await us as we meander around drinking and clicking. You don't have to drink alcohol either. Many of our members do not drink and they still come over for a good talk and networking.The first place we’ll all meet at is set in an old library. It’s Seattle’s only pub dedicated to all things Australian & New Zealander, the Kangaroo and Kiwi. It’s a great spot with lots of open space for us to hang out, shoot, and grab a few drinks. After we’re done here, we’ll wander around Market St and Leary Way wherever we may feel like heading to. The locks are nearby too, potentially a fun spot to catch the sun setting towards the end of the event.March Monthly Challenge!As usual, there's a monthly challenge with the event and this months' theme is Shallow Depth of Field, with awesome prizes from +Gary Fong Flash Diffusers, +c't Digital Photography, and +Trey Ratcliff. More info for the challenge can be found here: https://plus.google.com/events/cqhl3cme6cdparii4m541n63drgHope to see you! Cheers!+Jacob Lucas.Seattle Drink and Click - Ballard2014-03-23 16:00:0030G+
Drink and Click™ Seattle, Washington110The First Seattle +Drink and Click™ is happening!When: Saturday February 15th 2014, starting at 3pm. Rain or Shine.Where: Capitol Hill, just east of downtown Seattle.We'll meet at the Elysian Brewery and Pub at 13th & Pike. This should be a lot of fun - Capitol Hill is an always fun and vibrant neighbourhood to photograph... definitely something for everyone here.The plan will be to meet at the Elysian, get to know everyone while people arrive, and then wander west along Pike St until we get to Broadway. From there we can head north along Broadway up into Capitol Hill. There is a ton to shoot at the pubs and bars on the hill and along the streets as well. A lot of these pubs can be dimly lit - pack in that fast 50 for some fun low light shots.February ChallengeEach month there is a chapter wide challenge with some great prizes up for grabs. The theme changes each month, and this month the theme is "Rule of Thirds". https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/c3fa0q2l3thvf3oo4gpnjluncu4Looking forward to seeing everyone there!Cheers,+Jacob Lucas.Seattle's First Drink and Click - Capitol Hill2014-02-15 15:00:0021G+

Seattle Photowalk554The Plan: We will meet at 2pm at the totem pole and assemble for a group photo. For those coming in from other states or those who haven't visited the area, the totem pole is in a courtyard at the corner of 1st Ave and Yesler Way. There is street parking and pay parking lots very close by.After that, roam in packs or individually and capture the ambiance, the tourists, the locals, the exposed brick and Victorian Romanesque architecture, and the unique flavor of this location.There is no set route, but we intend to slowly make our way down towards the waterfront and grab dinner and drinks at approx. 5pm. After dinner the die hards are welcome to stick around for some sunset shooting along the Seattle Waterfront.For more information on Seattle photowalks or photowalks in general, check out the profile for +Seattle Photowalk. Be sure to add +Seattle Photowalk to your circles to stay informed about upcoming walks.Remember, all posts related to this (and other) Seattle photowalks will be tagged with #seattlephotowalk .Hope to see you there!Seattle Photowalk - Pioneer Square Edition2012-08-25 14:00:0025G+

Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321234895CC G+

Mountain Summer Storm
North Cascades, Washington State

On a recent trip up to Mt. Baker, I was fortunate enough to catch Mt. Shuksan and Picture Lake at sunset just as a big Summer storm was blowing in. The entire scene was so dynamic and filled with such rich, deep color that I could hardly believe my eyes.

San Juan Sunset
Washington Park, Anacortes, Washington

My family has an annual tradition of going camping with the same large group of friends somewhere new in Washington state. (One of a several summer traditions we have that revolve around camping!) This year we camped at Washington Park up in Anacortes, Washington--somewhere I've never been before. It is absolutely gorgeous and is very worthy of a visit--even if only for a day trip. The views of Puget Sound the San Juans can't be beat.

This last Saturday night, I managed to sneak out with my camera to shoot sunset. Here's a shot from near our campsite, just after sunset, looking west across Rosario Strait at the San Juan Islands.

Devils Tower and the Moon
Devils Tower National Monument, Wyoming, USA

Here's a shot of Devils Tower as the nearly full moon is rising above it, just a bit after sunset. This is from an incredible road trip to South Dakota to visit the Black Hills and Badlands National Park--and on the way there how could I not stop and visit the famous Devils Tower in Wyoming? I had pretty lofty expectations about how interesting and awe-inspiring I expected this place to be and it lived up to all of them. Well worth the detour.

Shot Details:
Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, +Really Right Stuff TVC-23 and BH-55, RAW, ISO 100, 55 mm, f/10, 8 seconds.

It's a small world. Last weekend, while climbing Mt. Ellinor (just outside Olympic National Park), I ran into a father and son on the way up and spent and had a good time chatting with them there and the top. I later discovered that the father was a friend on mine from Flickr and that his son shot and posted a photo of me doing my thing at the summit. Here's a link to that shot--directly below me is Lake Cushman and beyond that is Hood Canal and Puget Sound.

Sol Duc Falls, Olympic National Park

A shot of Sol Duc Falls taken on a cold, wet, misty day last Autumn--the absolute best kind of day to photograph waterfalls. Not only is the light perfect, but you get the whole place to yourself since no one wants to go hiking on those kinds of days!

Sol Duc Falls
Olympic National Park

Here's a little bit different of a view of these beautiful falls in Olympic National Park. Getting here just requires going off trail a little bit and standing on a mossy basalt cliff edge with a little bit of a 100 foot drop to the Sol Duc River, but it's not so bad.  ;)

Great pre-dawn shot of the cherry blossoms blooming yesterday at the University of Washington by +Jacob Lucas. Please leave any comments on his post!

Sunrise Over The Quad
University of Washington Campus, Seattle, WA
http://www.jflphotography.com/Blog/Sunrise-Over-The-Quad

See this image LARGE on my blog!

This past weekend my good mate +Sam Breach was in town, so I dragged her out to the University of Washington for a sunrise shoot. I had seen a lot of news that the Cherry Blossom trees on campus were in full bloom, and it seems they were right! 

We got there about 30 minutes before sunrise to find a quiet and almost empty quad. It was a very tranquil and quiet shoot. Definitely pays to wake early sometimes :)

And Then This Bird Walked into My Shot...
Bay of Banderas, Mexico

This is a shot from a recent family vacation to Punta de Mita, Mexico--near Puerto Vallarta. This is looking west, out of the Bay of Banderas and toward the open Pacific.  While most of the sunsets were clear, this one had quite a few clouds setting up on the western horizon so I went out with the camera hoping for something good... and wasn't disappointed!  After I found these cool rocks to use as a foreground, this bird flew in and decided to start frolicking in the surf right in front of me. Sometimes I get lucky. ;)

Shot handheld with the Fujifilm X100s. (RAW, ISO 1600, 1/18s, f/8).

Should be great, looking forward to this--going to put the X100S through its paces.

Our next Drink and Click event is happening in the fun & funky Ballard neighbourhood of Seattle. Tons and tons of bars, coffee shops, restaurants, and street photography await us as we meander around drinking and clicking. You don't have to drink alcohol either. Many of our members do not drink and they still come over for a good talk and networking.

The first place we’ll all meet at is set in an old library. It’s Seattle’s only pub dedicated to all things Australian & New Zealander, the Kangaroo and Kiwi. It’s a great spot with lots of open space for us to hang out, shoot, and grab a few drinks. After we’re done here, we’ll wander around Market St and Leary Way wherever we may feel like heading to. The locks are nearby too, potentially a fun spot to catch the sun setting towards the end of the event.

March Monthly Challenge!
As usual, there's a monthly challenge with the event and this months' theme is Shallow Depth of Field, with awesome prizes from +Gary Fong Flash Diffusers, +c't Digital Photography, and +Trey Ratcliff. More info for the challenge can be found here: https://plus.google.com/events/cqhl3cme6cdparii4m541n63drg

Hope to see you! Cheers!

Spring has arrived--and guess what's in bloom right now? Think it's time for a few more field trips up to the Skagit Valley.

Absolutely gorgeous shot by +Peter West Carey of my favorite city, during an early morning outing that he somehow convinced me to join him on.

Panorama: Before Sunrise In Seattle, Washington, USA

Summer mornings are near perfection in Seattle. We don’t get warmth all year round so when Summer finally begins (some time around the end of July, usually) and the days are long, getting up early for photography is easy.

My friend +Michael Riffle and I were up extra early, well before coffee stands were open (which is saying something in this coffee-Mecca town) and that allowed for extra time to set up and capture morning’s colors before the sun touched Mt. Rainier in the distance.

This view captures a lot of Seattle’s icons, form the obvious Space Needle and Mt. Rainier to the newer Great Wheel on the waterfront and the two sports stadiums in the far distance (while admitting I still miss the Kingdome sometimes….in the winter).

Autumn on the Sol Duc

A Fungus Among Us

Saw this beautiful yellow coral fungus while hiking near the Sol Duc River in Olympic National Park this weekend. It is a bumper year for mushroom hunters in the Pacific Northwest this year, I know I've never seen so many (or so many different kinds) before.

Moonlight Vista
Vista House, Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

This is a shot of the Vista House at Crown Point on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge. This is a single exposure, shot at night, and it is lit entirely by the light of a particularly bright full moon behind me. I was really blown away by how well the full moon can light a scene, and will definitely be exploring more ways to incorporate it in the future.

A Touch of Fall
Glacier National Park, Montana

Got up about three hours before dawn to make the loooong drive from Kalispell, Montana to the Wild Goose Island Overlook in Glacier National Park a few weeks ago. (Note to self: Stay closer to where you want to shoot at dawn..) Early morning tends to be the most interesting time to drive through National Parks, especially in terms of seeing wildlife. On this particular morning, I saw a huge grizzly bear sauntering up the road, trailed by a group of bicyclists trying who were too afraid to pass it by.  ;)

Taken on a recent hike up to Hurricane Hill, near the Hurricane Ridge area of Olympic National Park in Washington State.

Seaweed at Sunset

From a pretty nice sunset up at Picnic Point Beach a few days ago. The park was filled with fisherman who had waded out into the water to catch "humpies." (pink salmon). One of the fisherman is visible towards the middle of the frame.

Ponytail Falls
Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

Here's a shot of Ponytail Falls, taken in the Columbia River Gorge during a cold, extremely rainy weekend earlier in the year. For some reason, I hadn't processed this photo until this week, but I've been going back and revisiting my shots from that trip in anticipation of heading back down there for some fall colors next month. I can't wait to get back out there, knee-deep in some more frigid streams.

Changing Conditions
North Cascades, Washington State

Took a trip up to Mt. Baker a month ago and spent the day enduring hordes of mosquitos and flies while hiking about shooting the scenery. This particular day had some stormy, unstable air, and the view of Mt. Shuksan (pictured here) was constantly changing. One minute it was clear as a bell, a few later it was completely hidden from view, and for a few fleeting minutes in between it was half covered with beautiful wispy clouds.

Incredible shot of a Seattle sunrise by my pal +Jacob Lucas. I hope to see a scene like this myself this fall!

Sunrise in the Autumn...
Kerry Park, Seattle, WA

The weather in Seattle has taken a chilly turn, and it's making think of Autumn with all kinds of excitement. One fun thing to look forward to is the gorgeous sunrises that we are privy to, such as this one from back in 2012.

Mt. Rainier is back there somewhere behind all that low cloud... just to the right of the Space Needle :)

This is a shot of the downtown Seattle skyline and Space Needle bathed in the first light of what would become a gorgeous day in the Pacific Northwest.

Elk, Interrupted
Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

I just got back to Seattle after spending four days exploring Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado for the first time. On one of the evenings, I decided to drive up and do a little bit of light chasing among the peaks at sunset and found this lovely lady hanging out at one of the many magnificent overlooks in the park. After several minutes of following her around, she was nice enough to look at me and hold still long enough to get some good exposures.

Behind this beautiful elk are Hayden Spire (12,480 ft) in the middle, Sprague Mountain (12,713 ft) to the left, and Stone Peak (12,922 ft) to the far left.

Victorian Peacock
Beacon Hill Park, Victoria, BC, Canada

Recently went up to Victoria, BC and visited the beautiful Beacon Hill Park for the first time. I can honestly say I didn't expect to see a too many of these birds strutting around an outdoor public park in the Pacific Northwest, but they were everywhere! It's almost surreal to see these birds interacting with the ducks, crows, and seagulls I see every day... not to mention the baby goat I saw take a running jump right onto one in the park petting zoo (sadly no picture).

This is shot with my Canon PowerShot S100 and processed in +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and +Nik Photography Viveza 2. (26mm, f/5.9, 1/60s)

Well well well... Don't know if I'd actually buy one of these, but do think this is a forerunner of cameras to come. Give me a high quality compact camera with a touch screen, a huge photo app marketplace, and wireless sharing on the road and I'm all over it.

Wet Day in the Woods
Sol Duc River, Olympic National Park

From a recent trip up the Sol Duc River Valley in Olympic National Park. This is the Sol Duc River at a spot known as the Salmon Cascades, where you can frequently see salmon and steelhead attempting to make it upriver by charging and jumping up these falls--no small feat.

Sol Duc Falls
Olympic National Park, Washington

Taken last weekend out at Sol Duc Falls in Olympic National Park in Washington State. The falls were absolutely raging from recent rain and snow melt. This was a pretty fun vantage point to shoot from, what with the precipitous drop, raging torrent, and wet rocks.

Here Be Dragons...
Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

This is the entrance to Oneonta Gorge taken on a recent trip down to the Columbia River Gorge this Spring. It requires a bit of wading to get to this spot, but it's well worth it. On this wet, misty morning, I had the entire place to myself and spent quite some time here just watching the light play in the canyon.

Seattle Waterfront Panorama
Seattle, WA

Made the trip up to Kerry Park recently on an exceptionally clear evening to capture the Seattle skyline, waterfront, and Mt. Rainier at sunset. It was a great night, and I really enjoyed meeting and chatting with a few out-of-town photographers who think Seattle always looks like this.  ;)

Oh, yes. As you've undoubtedly heard, Flickr just went live today with a massive update. You get a terabyte (yeah, that's right, a terabyte) free... and Flickr's redesign looks amazing. Check it out and you have an account over there, let's connect: http://www.flickr.com/bluememe/
