Elliott Bay with Ferries, Long Dark Winter Number 8, November 29, 2013

Another picture from my morning session at Kerry Park in Seattle on Wednesday, this from the same spot as #7 just turning the camera a little to the right to catch Elliott Bay and a couple of ferries coming and going.

Again, this is a series of 5 pictures taken with my Canon 5D Mark III and my new EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS lens (This is a great lens - I have only had it for a week and love it!) @ 78mm, f/6.3, ISO 100, and shutter speeds of 1/20, 1/6, .5, 1.6, and 5.0 seconds. I processed in Lightroom 4 and did the HDR in Photomatix Pro 4.2, blended it all together in Photoshop CS6.

Seattle from Kerry Park, Long Dark Winter #7, November 27, 2013

I was inspired by some photos displayed on the PNW Photographer's Facebook page. I have lived in the Seattle area for close to 23 years and had never been to Kerry Park in Seattle. This is now officially on our visitor's list of places to see. What a view of downtown Seattle! So I had the day off and looked at the weather forecast the night before - the situation looked iffy...

I got up at 5:00am and checked all the web cams and weather sites I could find on my tablet. I have to say, webcams are not helpful as far as discerning the cloud cover. I found one TV station that said it was cloudy and another that stated it was clear. I guess I could have gone outside, but it's cold here. So I got up and decided to give it a try. Once I stepped outside my home the sky was clear - great! So off I went to Seattle. I got there early and set up. By the time I took this picture at 6:49am (sunrise was at 7:30am) there was a little crowd of runners and photographers.

So here is the shot:

I processed in Lightroom 4 and did the HDR in Photomatix Pro 4.2, blended it all together in Photoshop CS6.

Burnoff, Long Dark Winter #5, Sunday November 10, 2013

Driving through the Snoqualmie Valley on Saturday morning. Sunny up the hill at our house, thick fog down in the valley, see #4. The sun was starting to burn through the fog when I got to this farm, this surreal scene was presented. I wanted to get it before the light changed - which it did within a minute or two. So my camera settings were not the best. I should have moved the ISO down to 100. No worries the 5D Mark III did OK.

With winter we now commute in the dark. Within the week I will be going to and coming from work in the dark. That is the worst part of the long dark winter. Going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark. LDW-num-3-Highway

Sunrise, Number 1 in the Long Dark Winter Project. October 30, 2013

The first photo in a new project that I am calling the Long Dark Winter. I need it to get back into photography, my cameras have been sitting unused and sad for the last couple of months. Not sure where this will lead but here is my first submission. Unfortunately this first picture was taken with my phone appropriately... That unfortunately is kind of not the idea. I will try to do this as a photo a day type of thing, through the end of January. 20131030_074404_HDR_1

Camera: Samsung Galaxy Note II, using HDR mode, processed with Snapseed Android photo editing app.
