Another view of the wreck of Bayard and the nesting Imperial Shags now on it.  Those little white blobs on the hillside are Reindeer, introduced in the early 1900s by whalers.  They are something of a nuisance now because of the environmental damage they cause and are being eradicated.

This is probably one of the iconic images one makes when visiting Lewis and Harris in Scotland and so probably has a million images on the internet just like this one but I loved the dramatic clouds we had the afternoon so this image is still special to me.  I enjoyed every part of my Scotland trip but I think the Outer Hebrides were the most unique and definitely an area I want to return to someday.

Our last shoot of the trip this morning and we returned to Face Rock State Park beach and once again different conditions.  This time, the tide was completely out giving us access to get close to more sea stacks.  Combined with some definition in the clouds and just a bit of fog, made for different images than before.

We had a spectacular morning shoot at Bandon with fog allowing us to make interesting, dramatic images.  Once we wrapped up at the the beach and walked back up to the parking area we got to see the extent of the fog over the entire area.  Pretty awesome.

The Bayard is a sailing ship that was most active in the mid 1900s.  In 1911 the ship lost its mooring at a pier in Ocean Harbour and ran aground in the rocks.  Since then its been used as breeding grounds for Imperial Shags (a.k.a. Blue-eyed Shag).

I made this image while experimenting with sun bursts on our first evening in Bandon, Oregon.  I typically use a tripod for landscape photography, especially when the apertures get really small like f/16 (which is needed for a sun burst).  However, getting the angle just right can be a hassle with a tripod, so its easier to just do it handheld and carefully adjust your position, taking shots.  Normally I would have just discarded the entire series, however I noticed the two sea gulls with contrasting tones and so processed the image to highlight that and for me it seems to work.

While hanging out with Andy Biggs and Steve Lumpkin last week, we were reminiscing about our Scotland trip earlier this year and just how much fun we had.  I went looking into my Lightroom catalog and found this image which is probably my favorite from the trip.  To me, it highlights exactly the kind of images I was looking for with water, rocks and most important a dark moody sky.  I remember the morning well.  It was to be a travel day to make our way from Skye to Harris and because of the forecast of heavy rain we didn't drive out for a shoot but opted to walk across the street and photograph this river (there are a couple of interesting bridges too).  The clouds didn't co-operate that much, often blanketing the distant hills so nothing could be seen.  I made this image in one of those narrow windows where it wasn't raining where I was standing and the clouds had lifted just a little.

No shoot at Bandon Beach so far has been the same.  The combination of tide, clouds, fog, and light have made each shoot and hence the resulting images very different.  This morning we had great conditions for sunrise color and I decided to stay put, revisiting a composition from earlier but hoping for color.  As it got closer to sunrise, the wind picked up and the water I was using as a reflection went from absolutely still to wavy, making the reflection I was looking for impossible.  Undeterred, I threw on a heavy ND filter and went for a long exposure which smoothed out the ripples but also then captures some of the movement in the cloud.

I arrived in Bandon, Oregon for a few days of coastal photography with Andy Biggs.  Our first shoot was last night at Face Rock State Park and though we were treated to some cloud early on, they all disappeared by sunset.  Still the clouds that were there along with a long exposure can make for an interesting black & white image.
