Biweekly Wow: Mt. Adams in Fall

Guess what, folks??  It’s autumn!  Have I mentioned before that this is my favorite season?  I love the colors and the coolness in the air, the smells and the squash.  Of course, this is the prime time to get outside for some hikes in the gorgeous weather and to let loose the shutter to capture all of the fiery beauty of nature.  It was the promise of this very season that guided our decision to visit Japan in the fall.  Tokyo was a bit early (at the beginning of November), but we were just in time in Kyoto!

We ventured out this past weekend in search of fall color, and I’m thrilled to report we found some. Autumn leaves in the sunshine | LotsaSmiles Photography (more…)

TWO5: 10/1/18

Good morning!  Happy Monday, and happy October!  Are you ready for a new month?  Autumn came so quickly, it’s hard to believe summer is already past.  And now that it’s officially October, I can start thinking about Halloween and Kumoricon coming up at the end of the month (I’m kind of way into the con scene).  I can also get pumpkin spice lattes without the stink-eye (yeah, guilty – I like those, too).

This week, I have five new photos – two on Instagram and three on 500px.

This first one is a surprisingly older photo.  I actually didn’t really care for how it was edited the first time around, but I gave it another look and a polish, and I’m pleased with the result.  This was from a trip to Seaside several years ago.  Most of the time, I only focus on my most recent photographs, but I’m glad I went back for this one.

Happy Friday!  This week featured quite a bit of Alaska.  I took so many photos there; I hope you don’t mind.

I’m also just beginning to play around with Instagram stories.  They’re all the rage nowadays, and I haven’t really used them before, so we’ll see how it goes!

This first photo is from my most recent post on crossing the Red River during our backpacking trip in Lake Clark National Park.  The scenery is beautiful, but the water sure is cold!  Check out that post here.

It’s crazy to think it’s November already.. I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!

This first image was my only true stand-alone this week.  It’s actually a somewhat older picture; we didn’t carve pumpkins this year.  I do enjoy doing it, but I was just too busy with Kumoricon preparations!  I’ll be posting some pictures from that really soon.

Happy Friday once more!  Today kicks off Day 1 of my favorite convention, Kumoricon!  Look forward to many pictures from that coming soon.  For now, I should probably be shooting a panel….

I wanted to try something different this week, so I experimented with grid photos!  The idea is that each tile can stand on its own as a photo, but when put together, a larger picture is formed.  This was fun, and while it took considerably more time to organize and plan out my posts, I’m really happy with the result.  Let me know what you think!

This first one was quite simple.  This was from my post this week on my very first bush plane.  As you can tell, these planes are itty bitty!  Read all about that adventure here.
