Biweekly Wow: Chilly Falls

Winter is not always the best time of year to photograph in the Pacific Northwest.  We so seldom get the beautiful snow I love so much; instead, it’s a lot of rain and drab cloud cover.  However, when we can find a reasonably dry day, we love to use this time of year to escape into the mountains.  There, we can find some snow – and often ice – and the landscape is much more photo worthy. This fortnight’s Biweekly Wow hails from such a trip. Icy waterfall downstream from Tamanawas Falls in Oregon | LotsaSmiles Photography (more…)

Another week, another set of photos.  Do you like these weekly recaps?

As you know, I’m moving more toward 500px over Instagram, but I’m still posting several times a week to both.  I have some ideas for new content; I’m going to try to start rolling some of that out soon.  Stay tuned!

This first image was from Bryce National Park.  I played around a bit with the coloring on this one.  It isn’t quite black and white with the red tones, and I like the feel the more sepia-like treatment lends.

Greetings, all!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and that you’re enjoying the beautiful spring (or fall) weather, wherever you are.

This week was difficult to sort by my favorites, which just tells me it’s a good set.

This first image was from the top of Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaii.  We had ascended the famed volcano to capture sunset at its peak.  Unfortunately, we didn’t realize that we’d be kicked out of the viewing area just after sundown.  In the future, we’ll now know to get permission beforehand to stay late for the stars.

I did manage to capture this one image, just before we were forced to vacate.  I look forward to having another go.

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.
