Doug Fir Cone

Doug Fir Cone

I first shot this with my Nikon and telephoto lens … and struggled with the very shallow depth of field. I ended up cropping a lot. I was unhappy with the result … so I finally ended up going back with my Fuji and shooting it again. Sometimes, you just need to have a fresh start.

  • Camera: Fujifilm GFX-50R with 63mm Fujinon lens
  • ISO 400 1/250 f/5.6

Misty Mountains

Misty Mountains

I really like the atmospheric effects in this image (the shades of grey fading into the distant mountains). It is one of the things I look for when shooting. That and the moments of light breaking through.

  • Camera: Nikon D850
  • Lens: Nikkor 80-400mm set at 400mm
  • ISO 400 1/800 sec f/14

Mountains in the Clouds

Mountains in the Clouds

This the the northeast corner of the Olympic Mountains from the Jefferson County Airport. I was out driving around and noticed a small break in the clouds … fortunately, I was close to the airport and could pull in and get a clear shot before the clouds filled in again.

  • Camera: Nikon D850
  • Lens: Nikkor 80-400mm set at 400mm
  • ISO 200 1/500 sec f/13

Foggy Winter Scene

Foggy Winter Scene

This was from the same day as the previous post (Sunny Winter Scene) and about an hour later. The clouds came up the mountain and everything was totally socked in. Not much to shoot except the outlines of trees. So, I shot outlines of trees. This is not a black and white image, by the way. There just isn’t any color making it through the fog.

  • Camera: Nikon D850
  • Lens: Nikkor 80-400mm set at 400mm
  • ISO 200 1/32o sec f/7.1

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.

Shore Pine Cones

Shore Pine Cones

This is a “shore pine” (Pinus Contorta, var contorta) but is growing at over 5000 feet along Grand Ridge in the rain shadow area of the Olympic National Park. (It will be ready for any expected sea level rise, for sure).
