I first climbed Uncompahgre Peak in 2000 with my father Ray and photographed it with a disposable 35mm camera. A return 15 years later to the summit at sunrise was certainly just as memorable and absolutely a better photographic experience; however, the entire hike was filled with the pleasantries of nostalgia from my very first climb 15 years prior.

Last night was one of the more frustrating nights of photography I've had. I had a shot all planned and lined up using Photographer's Ephemeris where the nearly full moon would be right behind Mount Hood, looking down the Columbia River. I was really excited too because the clouds were looking like they might light up from sunset. I got to my location only to find the sunset dudded out and the clouds obscured the moon. I went for a second location to get the Portland cityscape with the sunset clouds to the west and then found myself about 5 minutes too late for the light I wanted. All that work and not a single photo to show for it. So instead, I'm going to share this one from back in April at Dalles Mountain Ranch that I took in early sunrise light. Hope your weekend was luckier than mine!

This is a photo I shot last year from Lost Lake here in Oregon. I've been wanting to get out again and do some night photography. I was thinking maybe around Mt. St. Helens would be good. Do you have any favorite dark sky locations in the Pacific Northwest?

Another waterfall photograph from my excursion to Oregon's prime waterfall locations yielded this surreal long exposure of Lemolo Falls. I really wanted to isolate this mossy rock outcropping in the foreground from the rest of the image, so I decided to employ a very long shutter speed using a 9-stop ND. I know the whole silky water look isn't for everyone, but it is exactly what I wanted for this composition.

I'm certainly no time lapse god like some of my fellow photographers out there, and, I really do wish I owned a dolly so I could give my time lapse sequences a bit more pop; however, I really liked how this turned out. It is a collection of my night / Milky Way timelapses I've shot over the past couple of years (only about a minute's worth of footage, how sad is that). I hope you enjoy it. I'm really happy with how the Cape Kiwanda footage I recently shot turned out. Have a great holiday weekend!

The 2015 Perseid Meteor Shower was spectacular from the Oregon Coast! I shot the meteor shower from Cape Kiwanda near Pacific City, Oregon over the course of three hours. I did manage to get at least one good fireball in the frame and even a really amazing glow on the horizon through the haze behind the haystack rock  from a passing ship on the ocean. I was really happy with this composition and scene. Hope you also like it!

For this shot I blended a 225 second shot (ISO 1600, f/2.8) for the foreground and two 30 second (ISO 3200, f/2.8) shots for the meteors seen in the frame.

It is time to update my "Colorado's Top 20 Landscape Photographers" article. Three of the photographers featured no longer reside in #Colorado  and so I think it is only fitting that they be replaced. Please comment with your nominations with links to their work, I really appreciate it! What a great way to get featured as a photographer, by the way - this article is #1 on google search results on many keywords and is a huge referrer.

On the last day of my recent waterfall photography expedition with my friend Kane, we stopped at Koosah Falls at sunrise. The beautiful soft morning light was beaming through the tips of the trees behind us, lighting up the mist created by this powerful 64 ft. waterfall on the McKenzie River. Koosah Falls is located in Lane County, Central Oregon right off of Highway 126 near Sisters.

My sales person was Dave Williamson, a very nice fellow who was not pushy at all. I purchased a used Subaru I had found online first and knew it was the right car for me, so I'm sure I was a pretty easy customer. They answered all of my questions and made the experience very straight-forward and easy. I would recommend my friends to go there.
