Farmer’s Market in the Fall

A fall visit to the farmer’s market is a lot different than the mid-summer visits. In Port Townsend, the crowd is down … not so many tourists. The veggies and fruits are different, too. An interesting variety of root veggies, squash and other fall harvest offerings. Click on the image of the Romanesco and you will notice the very interesting fractal-like shape. It’s also called Roman Cauliflower or Romanesco Broccoli.

Night Sky Revisited

Milky Way, John Day area

The John Day area of Eastern Oregon has very dark skies with minimal light pollution. The star gazing is spectacular. I was down camping out a year or two back and took some time exposure shots with a Zeiss 21mm lens. I really liked the images at the time, but I recently revisited them and realized that I had not developed their full potential in Lightroom by removing as much noise as possible. I really liked the improvement, so here’s the resulting image.

  • Camera: Nikon Df
  • Lens: Zeiss 21mm Distagon T*
  • ISO 6400 15 sec f/4.5

Flowers from Another Day

Flowers from Another Day

A vase of flowers over on a side table sat unnoticed for several days longer than usual. On the way out to the yard waste, they called to me asking for a final photograph. I really like the image… it calls to me. Make sure you click on it and see the larger image. The texture and detail are quite fine.

Stonecrop and Pinesap

Stonecrop
Pinesap

I enjoy the flowers that struggle to grow in rugged, rocky dry places or deep in the woods. Stonecrop and Pinesap are that kind of plant. Stonecrop growing in the dry, rocky alpine slopes of the Olympic Mountains and Pinesap growing in the woods, living without chlorophyll.

The Kennewick in Stormy Weather

The Ferry Kennewick coming in to Port Townsend

I enjoy walking in stormy weather and this October day was perfect for that. The rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains protects Port Townsend (some) but it is often very windy. Walking along the beach downtown, I noticed the ferry Kennewick coming into town. I was a little surprised, since in high winds they often cancel that ferry run.

North Coast Olympic Peninsula Panorama

North Coast Olympic Peninsula Panorama

This was the first panorama I did using my new Fujifilm GFX 50R. The .dng file came in at over 400MB … but at that resolution, you can see the Dungeness lighthouse (on the right shoreline) and ships in the harbor at Port Angeles (the left shoreline). In the distance you can see the San Juan Islands (on the right) and Vancouver Island (on the left) with the Victoria area just visible. This was taken from the Grand Ridge trail just west of Deer Park in the Olympic National Park.

Moonset over the Olympics

The new moon setting over the NE Olympic Mountains

This was October 29th, the moon at about 13.3%. I went out to the county airport to get a clear view to the SW and lucked out with the moon setting over the small patch of the Olympic Mountains visible from that location.

  • Camera: Nikon D-850 with 80-400mm lens set at 400mm.
  • ISO 1250 1/30th sec f/9.0
