Up on Cripple Creek

Up on Cripple Creek

No, it’s not really Cripple Creek, I’m sure it has a real name but hell if I know it. However, if you get the reference then go you! I took this shot as a warm up shot before I meandered off to my real destination. I hadn’t shot with my Sony A7R for a few weeks because I was in Panama using the Nikon D810. I just prefer the Sony A7R for landscape stuff because I can flip the LCD…

The Green Mile

The Green Mile

Likely not a mile. In fact, about 50 meters tops but Green Mile sounds better than Green 50 Meters. Plus, it’s one of those images that I should not publish but I like it so I am. I shot this at the National Zoo near the Panda area. The green is bamboo and the light and stuff was coming through and I thought it would look cool. I was using my 70-200 for the first time and hand holding it…

Sky Afire

Sky Afire

This photograph was the unintentional consequence of going to shoot something else and looking up and seeing the sky. The evening I shot it the sky was weird all over the Washington DC area with clouds and the Sun making for some interesting views. I was actually out shooting landscape stuff in the later evening. The place I was shooting would be darkened in shadow before the Sun set so I ventured out at 7 PM. I was moving from…

The Catch Offloaded

The Catch Offloaded

I shot this at the Panama City, Panama Fish Market. It’s rather a famous tourist attraction but its also a working fish market with local fishermen bringing in the days catch. You can enjoy a nice, fresh seafood meal there if you are inclined and the prices are extremely reasonable. I had a mixed seafood ceviche and two beers for the princely sum of $3. I snapped this after I finished my lunch and was on my way to Casco…

Iglesia del Carmen

Iglesia del Carmen

The real name is Iglesia de Nuestra SeƱora del Carmen, or The Church of our Lady of Carmen, supposedly Mount Carmen but no idea. Dedicated to the Virgin Mary. All I really know is that the place was constantly full of people. Every time I tried to get a shot at night it would rain on me and the one day I set aside for shooting it was a children’s day there. So this is my best shot. I shot…

Red Sky At Night

Red Sky At Night

This is another one from Fort Myers. You can see the sunsets are rather spectacular there provided you don’t mind dealing with the heat and humidity. The heat and humidity are the reasons I have so many sunset and night shots because it was too hot to move during the day and it would either fry you or your camera first because it’s so hot. I had heat spots on the sensor from the one day I shot during the…

Hawthorne Bridge

Hawthorne Bridge

I love having lots of stuff to work on in my catalogue. It keeps me from getting bored with one specific area or thing. While I haven’t been to Portland, Oregon since May I still have stuff I shot and never edited it. This is the Hawthorne Bridge in Portland, Oregon. I know this because I looked it up. Otherwise I would not have had a clue. This was right outside my hotel so it’s one of the first images…

Distant Early Storm

Distant Early Storm

This one is from Panama, specifically Casco Viejo and I was shooting towards the city. This was pretty much the weather most days I was there but I came to shoot so I did! I used my 16-35mm and did a handheld shot. One of the things I noticed I did with the Nikon more was used it without a the tripod. The image stabilization in the lenses made me more comfortable with that versus my Sony A7R which does…

Panama Pride

Panama Pride

I am back from a week in Panama where I did a lot of photography. One of the issues I faced was the weather. It’s the rainy season this time of year so I had a lot of flat grey light to work with. On top of that, you could figure out it was going to rain every afternoon around 1 or 1:30 which also coincided with the humidity making it so hot that you didn’t want to be outside….

Fire Water Burn

Fire Water Burn

The title comes from a Bloodhound Gang song and I would give some lyrics but I would not make it too far before I would start offending people. Still, I think it fits this image nicely for a title. I remember thinking that it would be perfect for it when I was taking the image. This is one of the bridges that spans the Caloosahatchee River in Fort Myers. With the light coming off the water I just liked the…
