Thought I'd throw in a post of our family vacation back to Ketchikan, AK. Mostly family oriented shots this time, but I managed to grab a few fairly stellar eagle shots as well that I can make available if anyone is interested. For more Alaska scenery and wildlife, click HERE.
Photo of the Day
Tried out a technique called focus-stacking at a bluff near Bowman's Bay. This is a combination of multiple photos, each with different areas in focus, then combined in photoshop. I shot this on my 6D with a Tamron 11-18mm Wide angle lens. The lens is meant for APS-C sensor cameras, but at 15-18mm, the black … Continue reading Photo of the Day
A Couple More Shots from Mt. Erie
Sunset from Mount Erie
My brother in law and I grabbed our cameras and headed up to Mt. Erie in order to catch some shots of the sunset. This shot is actually several pictures stitched together in photoshop, which makes the original extremely large. I ordered a 60"x30" canvas print for my father-in-law. That will be fun to see.
Enjoying The Full Frame
I recently got a great deal on a full frame DSLR from the good folks at greentoe.com. The most significant improvement is the greater degree of separation in depth of field (the ability to blur out the parts of an image that are not in focus). Also, incredible performance at high ISO (which means nice, … Continue reading Enjoying The Full Frame

It's the prime season for the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival right now. I was able to get out in time for sunrise a couple of times. Unfortunately, the second time was cloudy and there weren't many keepers. However, the experience was priceless because I woke my son Liam up at 5:45am and took him with me. … Continue reading Tulips 2014
Photography on the “Rock!”
I recently enjoyed one of my most unique photo opportunities to date. My good friend Aaron Bryant asked me to accompany him on a couple climbs on Mt. Erie in order to provide photographs for the newly revised Mt. Erie guidebook, "Rockin' on the Rock." Aaron, in partnership with Jim Thompson, have put many hours … Continue reading Photography on the “Rock!”
As I write this I am finishing up my fishing trip in Ketchikan, AK. Eight years ago my parents bought a commercial troller and named it the Suzi Q (after my aunt's dog). They put a lot of work into their boat, with the intention to use it as a semi-retirement activity that makes a … Continue reading Alaska 2013
Snowshoeing with the 7D & iPhone 5
I had a great Saturday a couple of weekends ago with my friends Mark and Braxton. We drove to the upper lodge of the Mount Baker ski area and from there climbed up to Artist's Point (the now buried parking lot - we didn't actually go out onto the point). From there we summitted Table Mountain … Continue reading Snowshoeing with the 7D & iPhone 5
