The Last Days of Fall

I finally made it to the MN Landscape Arboretum to shoot the fall colors about a week after the peak.  I had to go after work one night, and by the time I scouted out a shot – it was on the edge of darkness in the deep forest. This shot was taken off one […]

A Misty Morning on Gillis Lake

This one was taken just moments after dawn in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in northern Minnesota on Gillis Lake.  It was probably around 40 degrees – and my wife went swimming about 15 minutes after this shot was taken. Vital Stats: Canon Rebel XT w/Canon 17-85mm lens @41mm  ISO400, f/9.0, 1/500 sec

The Black Tusk behind Whistler Mountain – the basalt core of an extinct volcano.  The photo was taken from near the peak of Whistler Mountain with an Olympus Digital Stylus – a 5MP point and shoot!  Heavy post-processing was done with Photoshop to convert to B&W and boost the contrast. Vital Stats: Olympus Stylus u400D […]

Second Beach, Olympic National Forest

Taken on the first day of my weekend landscape photo session with Jon Cornforth.  This turned out to be the best shot of the trip since the rest of the trip had bright sun and cloudless skies.  It’s nice to have one in the bag early! Vitals: Canon 40D w/Tamron 17-50mm @ 22mm.  Exposure: 1/15sec […]
