Sea Dragons

Sea Dragons

These dragon boats were on the docks in Portland, Oregon. You can rent them if you are inclined but these were rented out for an extended period of time. I know this from a sign posted next to them. The other long boats were boring compared to these so I can see why they were rented for extended periods. Why be out on the water in some boring boat when you ran ride a dragon? I wasn’t sure of the…

Stormy Skies Over the Willamette River

Stormy Skies Over the Willamette River

This is another from Portland, Oregon. I used my 15mm Voigtlander that I got for my Sony A7R that now comes in a native FE mount so no adapter. This is the widest lens I ever owned and I really like the way it keeps distortion to a minimum. The newest Lightroom update even has a lens profile for it. I ¬†did this one in HDR because it’s about the sky. It’s just cool looking the way it swirls over…

Washed Ashore

Washed Ashore

I saw these logs when I took a path down towards the Willamette River in Portland. No idea how high the river gets but assume these were logs and stuff were washed ashore when the river was high from rain. I shot these with my Olympus TG-4 since it was far more maneuverable than my Sony A7R that was mounted on a tripod. I could climb on the rocks to get to the angles I was looking for instead of…

3 In A Row

3 In A Row

This is another from the Portland, Oregon trip. Do not even ask me what the 3 bridges in this image are named as I have no earthly idea. I should also point out that this was the most sun I saw during that day of shooting. So when I saw it peeking through the clouds and the bridges lined up I took the shot, well several to be honest. So this is image is unabashedly HDR which I haven’t done…

Ghost In The Sky

Ghost In The Sky

This is another one from Portland and shot from the hotel I was staying at. I would say it was the view from my room but it wasn’t. A group of us were coming in from dinner and a friend invited us up to her room for a nightcap so I took a peek out her balcony and was like I’m taking a picture. Sadly I only had my Sony RX100M3 on me and no tripod but one must adapt….

This Way To Seattle

This Way To Seattle

No idea the name of the bridge. I know there are only a few you can drive across the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon. I shot this a little after 7 in the morning I think but there was hardly any sun showing so I knew it was going to be in monochrome. As for the title of the image, the sign says Seattle. Did the usual standard editing and then used Tonality CK for my monochrome conversion. I have…

Wave Crashing In

Wave Crashing In

I didn’t plan on showing any of the images I shot in Portland, Oregon just yet I really liked this one so I went ahead and edited it. This is a shot of some wake coming on on the¬†Willamette River here in Portland. I was out doing a sunrise shoot (no sun). You get very easy access to the river and I was down right on the water. I had my Olympus TG-4 which is waterproof so I just put…
