Good luck Dave!..
 
Please 'Share' & help us get the word out!
Your response has been extraordinary! Would you help us take this one step further, by clicking the 'Share' button on this post? 
Of course our gallery opening/First Friday event is important to us, but we are also trying to raise money for the MDA Alaska. 
In early March, they suffered a disastrous vandalism, with tens of thousands of dollars in damages. So, like the poster says, we are selling raffle tickets - with all proceeds going to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The winner will receive an incredible 28"x36" canvas of 'Genesis'. 
Print #1 of 25. I completed the creation of this print yesterday. It is home, sitting in our office with me, as I write this. 
I can't stop looking at it.

#mountainmonday curated by +Michael Russell

Holy crap! I remembered how to take a photo!

Though circumstances, I've basically taken the winter off from photography. The other day I finally made some time to go out and ended my day watching sunset over Mount Shuksan from a spot along the North Fork Nooksack River. I haven't shot this vantage a lot but it's going into my rotation. Not a GREAT sunset but enjoyable none the less.

This is one photo but triple processed to blend in +1 and -1 exposures.

I have been to this spot I was inquiring about parts beyond as I hadn't been able to investigate myself.  I parked for years up at the top before I clued in that I needed a pass.  Oops!

This blog post came across my RSS feed (yes! I still use one!) and I found it interesting and troubling especially since I do use GE to help me with location research. Given that Google has already shown that it's willing to kill a "popular" product such as Google Reader, I find it entirely possible that they would kill of Google Earth. Unlike Reader, they have attempted to, and presumably have made some money off of the GE product.

I hope they do re-commit to the Google Earth product, though.

While I haven't used My Maps I do use KML as a file format to export points I've marked on my GPS.  While I don't use that feature constantly, it is fairly important when I do.

Yellowstone National Park has issued what they call an "annual reminder" about permit requirements for film, video, and still photographers. I found the sentence about time lapse photography a bit contradictory and confusing.

I see people sharing stills from time lapse sequences all the time, though presumably the overall time lapse was also assembled.  It is a weird distinction, but perhaps this has come up enough times that they put that language in there.

My girlfriend came across this and forwarded it to me. I don't know if it has to be a certain level of "cold" but I might have to try this some time..

For those in the U.S., you may have heard on the news about a massive landslide that occurred over the weekend here in Washington State (the slide is only about 45 minutes away from my home). I came across this graphic and it really does a great job of informing people about it.

Still pretty horrific with the current death toll of 14.  There were a few work crews on the road apparently and a cable guy in there somewhere.

There was a slide in BC last year, a lot larger than this but I think only a 4 homes were in the way.  Makes me glad I live on level ground away from hills and rivers.

Is your photo workshop legal to operate within Mount Rainier National Park? You can check it against the list of current permit holders at this website.

I commend the +NationalParkService for posting this information on Mount Rainier's website. Sadly, this seems inconsistent and not available at every park's website (I tried looking at Yellowstone & Zion's individual websites).

I find this pretty laughable and generally poor form. If you actually are a "pro" and have "an edge" in your market, you shouldn't need the public to fund your capital purchases. Maybe this guy is in the wrong market..

One of Jon's first shares from his new foray into aerial based photography. Turned out great!
 
I just got back from another amazing trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. I was planning to spend most of my trip photographing humpback whales and also flying my remote controlled hexacopter. The whales and the weather mostly conspired against me, but my trip was long enough that I was able to take advantage of a few good days of weather between storms in order to fly my copter. This aerial image of the Kapoho tidepools is a beautiful example of the kind of abstract image that I have envisioned ever since I started flying copters. This intricate lava and coral reef system is located on the south end of the island in the Puna District. The interesting thing about an aerial image like this is that the scene looks better once the sun gets high enough in the sky to flood the terrain in high contrast light. I'm talking about the kind of light that would send a landscape photographer into a long diatribe about it being too harsh and unshootable. I created this image by flying my Canon EOS M camera and 11-22mm lens on my Tarot 690S hexacopter using XAircraft's SuperX flight controller. I processed the RAW file using Aperture 3 and Photoshop CC, plus Nik Software’s Color Efex 4‘s White Neutralizer filter.

I'm not personally a fan of Sony cameras but it may be food for thought for others out there..
