What better way to appreciate the planet on which we live than to look out at the stars and wonder... what if?

I recently learned some fancy new post-processing techniques and retooled this image I shot last year.  It was taken at approximately 1:30 AM on the northwest side of Mt. Rainier.

I still love this, especially "the headlamps"!

Ghosts of Fishermen Past

A long exposure shot from last night at the #DesMoinesMarina .  Nothing epic; just having a bit of fun with the +Formatt-Hitech Firecrest 10 stop IRND filter.  This is a two minute+ exposure shooting directly into the sun at f/8 ISO 100.  Note to self: the sun moves quite a bit over the course of two minutes.  I would have preferred clouds in the sky but, eh, it was fun and that's what it's all about anyway... and then there was the Don Gregorio taco truck off to the right beckoning my patronage!  mmmmm.... tacos.

Dale and the Needle

Captured back in 2012.  The Dale Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit lies directly at the base of the Space Needle here in Seattle, WA.

Lost in the Crowd

This brief moment in time was saved years ago on my very first DSLR - a Sony Alpha 100.  I remember the buskers playing off to my left and then turning to see this guy.  He was so enthralled with the music.  You could have popped a balloon behind him and he wouldn't of flinched.

Dali the Llama?

Just a snapshot from this morning as I was driving through my neighborhood.  Yup, I have a pack of llamas down the street.  At least, I think this is a llama.  It could be an alpaca.  I wouldn't know the difference if one bit me in the arse.

Great article here by +Manuel Becker on +500px.  Anyone new to photography should read in.
Better gear will not make you a better photographer, but these two simple decisions could drastically improve the quality of your work.

Just beautiful. The kayakers in silhouette add a wonderful touch.

Catastrophic

Gone...
- Seahawks Superbowl Parade
- Hikes on Mt. Rainier
- My 4665 mile trek through the southwest
- Headshots of my cousin and her BF
- Photos of my aunt who passed last month.
- Pretty much everything I photographed in 2013-14

All gone.  All I have left are the full-resolution JPEGs I have scattered on numerous websites.  I subscribed to Crash Plan soon after this 2TB drive failed and make backup copies of my photos.  Too little, too late.  Don't think it can't happen to you.  Make backups if you cherish your photos.

Paradise in Bloom

Shot a few years ago at Paradise, Mt. Rainier, WA.  Before you know it, the wildflowers will be in bloom once again... and you know where I'll be hanging out.

Do any serious photographers use Instagram?   I guess by "serious" I mean those who take photos with the intent of maintaining ownership and usage rights.  I'm just curious.  A few people have told me lately, "you need to get on Instagram". 

I'm not convinced.  Quite the contrary, actually.  I know Instagram was bought by facebook and I abhore facebook's policy regarding usage of photos posted on their service.  It appears Instagram's policy is either the same or very close.  I'm concerned about #1 under Rights.  It basically says that they can use my images however they see fit without compensation to me, the owner.  Wow.  It goes on to say they can license my image or sub-license without compensation.  Double wow.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

If you're like me and can't get enough of the American Southwest landscape, then circle up the talented +Valerie Millett.
We have some amazing scenery where I live in the Pacific Northwest.  But, man, what I wouldn't give to live closer to some of my most favorite landscapes found only in the southwest.
 
Heading back to Death Valley National Park in a few weeks!
