    Default Soundscapes

    Tuesday (5/21) I was parked on Sunset Ave. in Edmonds. A white sailboat and gull presented bright contrasts to the dark clouds rolling across Puget Sound at the time.

    Unprocessed shots.

    Post processing with Picasa's auto contrast feature, which I think is more representative of what I saw compared to the unprocessed photos.

    Our "spring" weather has not been conducive to sunsets and for the past month I have spent evenings hunting the elusive barred owls of Yost Park. Sunday (6/2) my aunt and uncle invited my family and I over to their house for dinner. They live in the Emerald Hills development of the Edmonds Bowl and have a beautiful view of Puget Sound from their back deck. I took along my photo equipment to get some shots after dinner.

    Here are some afterset shots I took looking across Puget Sound.

    An ethereal/surrealistic/artsy (pick one) shot of Point No Point from Sunset Ave. in Edmonds on 6-6-13.

    Time to revisit this thread. Although I got some good eagle shots Wednesday (2/26/14), I am not posting them because they look like so many of the other eagle shots I have recently posted.

    These were taken handheld with the 5DIII + 100-400L telephoto zoom + 1.4 teleconverter looking west across Puget Sound from Marina Park. Besides cropping, I used Picasa's auto contrast + auto color features to tweek the photos. Call it the techno-impaired man's Photoshop.

    The evil minions of the Dark Lord are hopeless posers. I wanted to shoot in Av mode at f/16 to get the mountains in focus, but the crow flew off before I could make the adjustments to my camera.

    Winter arrived very late this year. Snow storms from the past two weeks have given the Olympic Mountains the proper seasonal look.

    Close up of the container ship. I should e-mail these photos to Evergreen to see if they would purchase them for ads or PR purposes.

    Free Photo Lesson: Pay attention to the background. I did not notice the distant ferry on the right side of the photo. I should have taken a few more shots with it completely in the frame.

    Friday (2/28) afternoon the Edmonds waterfront got hammered by a combination of high tides + high winds.

    Thursday (11/6/14) was a November afternoon of high wind + high tide.

    I started off at Marina Beach, where the waves were breaking on the rocks in front of the sign illustrating the Olympic Mountains. No crow sitting on the sign today.

    The waves were piling up driftwood on the beach.

    In contrast, there was no wind at Olympic Beach and the water was quite still.

    One of the highest tides I have ever seen, as evidenced by the water level inside the marina.

    I was on the fishing pier for about an hour photographing birds. The wind and the waves eventually caught up with me.
