This is a detail of the central Bailey Range (Olympic National Park) I took from Hurricane Ridge while snowshoeing. This is a section just south of Mt Carrie.

ISO 200    1/1000 sec    f/11

Trees and Mist

This is along the Elwha River in Olympic National Park. The sun was going down and backlit the trees with the mists behind them. The line of trees along the ridge line is a nice touch that I didn’t notice at the time.

Lens: Nikon 24-85mm set at 85mm
ISO 400    1/125 sec    f/6.3

This is another shot from the Madison Falls parking lot in the Olympic National Park along the Elwha River. I really liked the pink blush of new growth on the tops of the alders… that’s what attracted me to taking the shot. But then I changed it in B&W and liked it even more. I use the Lightroom plugin version of Silver Efex Pro2 for the initial conversion to B&W and then use Photoshop for detail enhancements.

Elwha River in Winter

Taken from the Madison Falls parking lot in the Olympic National Park. I’m not too excited about how the details show up on the web view. One of those times that the image really needs printing.

Elwha River Road in Winter

Elwha River Road in Winter HDR by Allan J Jones Photography
Elwha River Road in Winter HDR

This section of the Elwha River Road (technically the Olympic Hot Springs Road) is above the washout. The federal government shut down has added to the backlog of clean up and repair … including this section of road.

The peak in the background is not volcanic… just flat topped and duel peaked. It is snow covered, but I couldn’t get the blue tint out to my satisfaction. There was some mist coming up off the ferns on the right shoulder, where the sun was hitting the frost left from the night before… but it didn’t show up well.

This is an HDR (High Dynamic Range) composite of three images taken about a stop on either side of the ‘normal’ exposure setting. Combined in Lightroom Classic CC.

Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Nikon 24-85mm set at 62mm
ISO 400    1/25 sec to 1/160 sec    f/22

Early Snow

Early Snow: North Fork Skokomish

This is shot taken from the bridge just above Lake Cushman looking up the North Fork Skokomish valley, the southeast corner of the Olympic National Park. There is a great trail running 14 miles up the valley to First Divide. The trail across the Olympics surveyed by the Lt. O’Neil Expedition in 1890 went up this valley and out the East Fork Quinault.

Camera: Nikon D810
Lens: Nikon 24-85mm set at 55mm

Port Townsend Mill and the Olympics

Port Townsend Paper Mill and the Olympic Mountains by Allan J JonesThis is looking southwest from the end of the downtown area of Port Townsend, looking towards the Port Townsend Paper Company mill and the Northeast corner of the Olympic Mountains. The steam from the mill and the cloud layer low on the mountains were both backlit and I was struck by the repeating horizontal lines. I also liked the way the distant foreground range has a set of cell phone towers and antennas … which repeat the vertical lines of the stacks and sailboat masts. (a little hard to see that in the smaller web version)

Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Nikon 28-300mm set at 250mm

Upper Queets River Road

Road to the Upper Queets

We had a trip to hike the Queets River trail (Olympic National Park) planned for several weeks. The summer had been dry and the river was low. That’s important since the first thing is to ford the river. Most of the year, the trail is inaccessible.

But of course, it is the rain forest … and so the day we arrived the river had just peaked at three times the “safe-to-ford” level. But the drive in was worth it… with mists in the forest, and elk crossing the road, and hardly anyone else around.

Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Nikon 24-85mm at 24mm
ISO 640    1/160 sec    f/6.3
