Moulton Falls Bridge

Here is a quick work up of the Moulton Falls Bridge on the East Fork of the Lewis River in Washington State..

I Love the clear water. I was hoping to get more detail of the rocks under the water but the bright reflections were making that difficult..

This area does deserve more exporation and I believe that the added spring foliage will make it really pretty..

Got out to hike

I visited Lucia Falls and Multon falls and Big Tree falls (Yacolt Falls) county park today for a possible Future Photowalk.

I think we have a winner. :-)

I think the two places would make a great late spring or early fall visit.
I was reading that at Lucia falls you get to see the steelhead jumping the falls in the fall.

There is some interesting features. An arched wooden bridge a swinging metal bridge. Some volcanic features.

BTW did I mention I shot these with my iPhone?

Until further notice. The month of February will be replaced by the early weeks of June. That is all.

A lot of people don't realize this about Jpg images.  Its not about just posting to instragram but to any other Social media service or from email to email, text to text.  You should always post from an original. Perferably a tiff file or some file that is considered lossless..  Save your images you want to keep as lossless..
Every time you post a photo to Instagram, it loses a tiny bit of quality. It's not really noticeable for a single upload, but if you save and repost the ph

Reflecting

I've been updating my moble devices this evening and importing my shots from earlier today.  As the proccess was unfolding I began going through some of my old images.

This particular image was from July 2008 and it is one of my favorite.
Sure there is no dramatic skies and its past the golden hour lighting but I have always loved this comp.  I shot it in my early days and I had not fully understood much on how to make everything in focus or how to deal with noise. But I keep returning to these images trying to make them better.

In this case the sky and water was always really noisy and the trees on the far left shore were not crisp. Through blending and layering I was able to increase the detail and sharpness of those trees without adding to the noise of the water or sky..

There is still a lot I don't know how to do like Focus Stacking or how to capture high contrast scenes without loosing detail in Shadows or highlights (I'm sure exposing each section properly then layering and blending Properly)   So much to learn.. but I have learned so much.

Its been a loooonng time

Since I have posted anything worth while.   

Just as a future note I'll going to be checking out a waterfall for a future Photowalk.  I need to see just how full of water it is and the difficulty of the trail..

Meg had a real rough week last week. She wanted to visit the painted hills.

For the peace and quiet. Here is a few shots from the area.

I Love shooting the beauty this planet has to offer
Introduction

I have been photographing Oregon since 2001. I mainly do landscapes.

I am drawn to the outdoors because I feel most at peace in nature. I would love to do a book someday. Maybe with a focus on the environment.  

I believe nature photographers get a front row seat to observe climate change and its tangeable effects on the land. With their cameras at the ready to record the proof.

Reciently I've fallen in love with shooting Historical Architecture.

I thought I once saw a UFO.... But then I realized it was just a tourist steping into my sweet waterfall shot....
