2019-03-20 Full Moon Color

This shot was March 20th at 7:18 PM from Fort Worden in Port Townsend, WA. I used a 300mm lens with a 2x teleconverter on a tripod with a shutter release.

I can’t decide if I like the B&W or the color better. The reflection of the sunset in the windows on the houses on Whidbey Island is nice and shows up a little better in the color. But the B&W seems sharper and less hazy. The adjustments were made in Lightroom and the B&W conversion was made of the final color image in Silver Effects Pro 2.

Camera: Nikon D850

Lens: Nikkor 300mm PF with 2x teleconverter

ISO: 100    1/25sec    f/8 (wide open with the 2x doubling the effective aperture)

View from Point Madison

DSC_1315-Edit-Edit

Point Madison is in Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA. I had raced down to the point to try and get a photo of a rainbow behind the lighthouse. It had pretty much faded away by the time I got there (see below). But when I started back up the hill, I was struck by the clouds and the sun shining off the wet streets.

Madison Falls Picnic Area (Winter)

The trailhead parking for accessing the Elwha River road is the (small) Madison Falls parking lot. Fortunately, in the winter, the traffic is not heavy. I was returning from my hike up to the bridge (about 6 miles round trip) carrying cameras and tripod … and the mists were moving through the valley. There are a couple of guys with their dog over on the picnic table to the left. They were admiring the view below:

Tall and Thin Door

DSC_0992

No, this isn’t altered to make it look tall and skinny… the doorway really is like this. Showing a little age… busted up in places, but with a charm of its own.

Lens: Zeiss Distagon 21mm
ISO 1600    1/30 sec    f/9.0

I think the door needs a little work. It’s starting to look a little shabby. Especially compared to the rest of the building front. (don’t ask about the back)

Sun, Sky and Color

DSC_0939

They just don’t do buildings like they used to… I really like the ornate trim on the old buildings in Port Townsend… this one dating to 1889 … about the real heyday of construction of a lot of the downtown area.

Early Snow outside Haines, Alaska

These are peaks visible from the ferry between Haines and Juneau Alaska. I was lucky to catch a brief opening in the clouds letting a little sun on the lower rock while the foreground forest was in shade.
