Novembers Photos So Far

Good timing on the drive home this particular evening. 

156.365

I love these fall skies... almost every night is a treat.  Lucky me, catching that plane.

You might remember this shot.  The last time I was here, I wasn't happy with my results because the skies were really clear or flat or something.

157.365

Much better this time, and I like this shot a lot more.

Yet another dramatic sky on my drive home.

158.365

It's great to be able to just stop and run down to the river and take pictures for a half an hour.  I'm enjoying it while I can.

Finally, some rain!  It was coming down pretty good the other night, with no wind, so I decided I should get out and enjoy it. 

160.365

And I did!  I walked through downtown and took pictures of the MAX on the new line, and did some shots from a whole new parking garage.  I was able to get some really interesting stuff, but for some reason this one really stood out.

On Sunday, I wanted to go for a  hike and enjoy the passing showers.  I decided to try something new, and drove up to Lucia Falls in Washington.  It was a nice drive and the falls are pretty cool.  I think they'd be nicer with a lower flow, as they are pretty short and were really churning yesterday.

As it is, the shot I took of the river heading down and around that island came out the most interesting.  I loved that mist coming off the trees, it only hung around for a couple of minutes.

Very nice shots. I came to your photo blog from your poker blog. Can you spend some time describing your gear, and maybe list shot stats (lens, settings etc) for the ones you post and describe here?

Thanks,

Jason

Hi Lauren - We're supposed to have rain for the next week or so. So no luck with the meteor shower, unfortunately. I hope you're able to get some shots tho!

And hello Genomeboy - I have a Nikon D80 and a stock 18-135mm lens, as well as a 60mm macro lens. I use a polarizer on virtually every shot, and an ND Filter for many. I shoot everything manually, setting the exposure, white balance, ISO, etc. all manually for each shot.

Additional info, such as specifics on exposure settings, can be found on the flickr page for each photo. If you click on any of them, it will take you to Flickr, and then you can select "More Properties" on the right and it will tell you more than you could possibly want to know.

Occasionally I'll post a non-public photo, and you won't be able to click through, but most of them are fine.

Thanks for stopping by!
