Juncture

Bandon, Oregon, USA
Canon EOS 5D Mark III | ISO 100 | 20mm | 240 sec | F/7.1

Another Memorial Day week-end, another trip to Bandon…  This time we came better equipped with both 6 and 10-stop neutral density filters to enable us to capture much longer exposure images.  This particular shot was taken at a disappointing and windy sunset.  Despite the bitterly cold and gusty wind, Nate stood nearly motionless on this flooded rock for 4 full minutes!  The image was solely post-processed in Lightroom.  Although I originally edited out the ND filter-induced vignette, I ended up leaving it in.

Bandon Beach

Bandon, Oregon, USA

From a series of long exposure images created last Memorial Day week-end on the Oregon Coast.  Processed in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 and Lightroom.

Ford Truck in the Palouse

Colfax, Washington, USA
Canon EOS 40D | ISO 100 | 10mm | 1/6 sec | F/22

Captured last summer during a week-end getaway to the Palouse in Eastern Washington.  One of those photogenic barns (right outside Colfax proper) that beckon you.  The owner clearly looks after his property and is a very nice man.   I experimented with some HDR rendition but ultimately chose the single processed shot developed in Lightroom 4.

Zebra Slot

Escalante National Monument, Utah, USA
Canon EOS 40D | ISO 100 | 10mm | 1 sec | F/13

Zebra Slot is a fun, short, and in our case wet, canyon in Escalante National Monument. It is best known for this short and narrow section of striated rock with many colourful moquis. Best time to shoot is mid-morning before the sun strikes the slot walls directly.  More details on how to get there at Tom’s Canyoneering.

Fishing Girl

Siem Reap, Cambodia
Panasonic LX3 | ISO 80 | 1/250 sec | F/4.0

One of my favourite images from the trip to Cambodia. I was eyeing this little girl fishing on a rooftop while shooting some HDR frames with my main camera on a tripod. I took over a dozen images of her on my point and shoot before I finally captured the silhouette I had in mind…

Sunset Over the Rice Paddy

Siem Reap, Cambodia
Canon EOS 40D | ISO 100 | 13mm | F/22

Our friend and guide Lim Leangsreng took us to this rice paddy on the outskirts of Siem Reap for one of the many spectacular sunsets we experienced while in the area… The sun may set fast at that latitude — but it does it with a bang!
