Weathered Wood

Weathered Wood

I really enjoy the warm colors of weathered wood. This was a storage building up at the ranger station at Deer Park in the Olympic National Park at over 5200′ and it’s exposed to some pretty intense weather most of the year.

Crossing a Single Stringer

Crossing a Single Stringer

This was another case of a photo that I originally had rejected. It was underexposed by a whole bunch. Working with it in Lightroom I was able to recover the details in the shadow areas while keeping the light areas from getting blown out. Lesson: don’t give up on an image based on first impressions.

A “single stringer” is a bridge across a stream consisting of a single log … usually flattened on the top and often with a railing.

Upper Dungeness

Upper Dungeness

I was working on an exercise that consisted of taking photos that I originally rejected and seeing if I could ‘make’ anything of them. This was one of the rejects … the original image was taken by mistake while I was moving the camera and was tilted at about a 45 degree angle. The foreground is a little soft … not sure if it was a camera movement issue or just a focusing issue. I liked the end result, though. It reminds me of the photos I used to take with my old box camera when I was a kid.

Boulder Shelter

Boulder Shelter

Boulder Shelter sits in the upper Dungeness valley, at the trail junction between the Constance Pass trail and the Marmot Pass trail. It was rebuilt in the ’90’s by a volunteer group working with the forest service.

Smith Rocks State Park, Oregon

Smith Rocks State Park, Oregon

The first photo is looking up the Crooked River from the overlook at Smith Rocks State Park, while the second is looking downriver from the trail running down to the footbridge crossing the river. The park is a local rock climbing Mecca and offers some great hiking. Besides the dramatic scenery.
