How Could She Do It?

Earlier today I had a short walk around downtown San Francisco with my new friend Jeremy Brooks.
I had not spoken to anybody for a week, So Jeremy had to put his ears to a lot of stories. Glad your ears didn’t fall of buddy.
A pleasure spending time with you, hopefully we can do it again someday.

I was so busy talking, that I almost forgot to make some photos, but I did manage to get this one, which I kind of like.

I’m What’s Left and I’m What’s Right

I'm What's Left and I'm What's Right

Made a few days ago on the Oregon coast, I went out here to see this ship wreck, but there was a huge amount of people in and around it, which made it impossible to make any good photos of it.

I bit further down the beach, there were these wooden poles, which no one seamed to care about, and that made a whole lot easier to do a bit of photography.

Foggy Ruby Beach Morning

Foggy Ruby Beach Morning

I slept in My car at the parking lot at Ruby Beach in the hopes of getting a cool sunrise – the sunset the evening before had been none exiting, fog and rain swallowed it – but no luck, just more fog and a light rain.
Well I got up and out there anyway, and tried to make the best of it.

Ruby beach is amazingly beautiful – even in foggy weather – and has a lot to offer photo wise. I started making some long exposures with matched perfectly with the weather conditions. And got away with some pretty cool shots.

This being one of them.

I thought of making it black and white, but I really like the brownish tone, and decided to keep it in color.

Here’s one from the other night, it’s the Seattle skyline at sunset, photo made from the 12 ave. bridge.

My two new-found friends Dave Morrow and Jason Williams, where so kind to show me this place, Thanks guys, loved hanging out and making photos with you.

Palouse Falls

Palouse Falls OM D

This is a HDR from Palouse Falls State Park in Washington State. I stayed there a few nights ago, to get both sunset and sunrise in this very beautiful place.
But man it’s a hard place to shoot, if you want something a bit new. the sunset was absolutely epic, but it was it the “wrong” place – behind me – I have had to be on the other side of the waterfall in order to catch it, and then I don’t think it would have worked, because this place is rather low, and the sun would properly have been behind some hills on the horizon.
Sunrise was better – wasn’t quit as epic – but it was still a bit of from where I really would have liked it to be.

I still got away with some good photos from this place, so I’m not complaining. I mean it’s hard to make a “bad” photo in places like this.

The Soft Hills of Steptoe Butte

20130808_060352

Got up at 4:45am this morning to catch sunrise over the hills around Steptoe Butte.
The sky where a bit cloud less and didn’t make a good backdrop for the beautiful landscape.

But With My LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm f4.0-5.6 lens I managed to pick some neat “close ups”

I’m so impressed with the quality of my Olympus OM-D EM-5.
Here are two photos I made, last night on the waterfront here in Portland, Oregon.
Take a look at them in full-size, and see the detail level, and it’s only 16MP.

And note that the 1. is made with a shutter speed of 60 sec. that’s the slowest shutter speed on the OM-D (not 30 sec. like most other cameras) I like that.
And I have always wonder why the slowest shutter speed is only 30 sec. Why isn’t it 5 min.?

Moon Light in Yellowstone

In Moon Light #01

In Moon Light #01

Here’s three photo’s I made on a full moon night, when I visited Yellowstone in 2010.
I didn’t know how they would turn out – at the time – but I really like the surreal lightning you get from a full moon.

I have ever since tried to do some similar photos, but it’s not that easy when you live in Denmark, we don’t have these wide open spaces, there is always some sort of light pollution in the horizon.

Exif info from the first photo.
