  • Victorian Tulips

    Victorian Tulips

    As promised (more than once) I am finally beginning to post about last month’s trip to Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Before the actual photo tour began, my friend Barrett Lowe and I spent an afternoon and a morning wandering around Victoria with our cameras. Of the many things to photograph, there were tulips in…

  • Pink over Pawnee

    Pink over Pawnee

    Last weekend I was rather dismayed when I saw a picture of saguaros silhouetted against a magenta aurora sky; after 29 years of living in an auroraless Arizona, I had some serious image envy. Not only that, but I hadn’t made any effort to go look for the aurora in Colorado, where it would have…

  • Thirty Minutes at Fort Casey

    Thirty Minutes at Fort Casey

    For the Whidbey Island photography workshop, we met at Camp Casey which is largely comprised of old barracks and such. Next door—on the other side of some woods—is Fort Casey, which has old fortifications and gun batteries. At some point a few fellow workshop-goers had gone over there, but for some reason I didn’t prioritize…

  • Coupeville

    Coupeville

    Coupeville is in Washington, not Portugal, so as promised last week this is a post-Iberian post. During the photo workshop on Whidbey Island last fall, we made several visits to the area by the Coupeville pier, both morning and evening. It was definitely pretty, but I would not say that it was an easy place…

  • Portugal a Posteriori

    Portugal a Posteriori

    Well, this is the twelfth and final post about my trip to Portugal’s Silver Coast. I figured that this was a good chance to sneak in a few pictures that I didn’t have space for the last few weeks. The first three are all architectural images using the PC Nikkor 19mm f/4E ED wide-angle tilt-shift…

  • A Day in Óbidos

    A Day in Óbidos

    Well, a little over four hours, at any rate. The walled city of Óbidos is definitely the sort of place that I enjoy taking pictures! With the narrow cobbled streets and the suffering paint on the walls, there was an abundance of subject matter that appealed to me. The heavily-overgrown vines in the image above…

  • More Silver Coast Beaches

    More Silver Coast Beaches

    This is going to be my last post featuring beaches in Portugal, and since I am tired tonight, I am going to try to keep my commentary on the images brief. Starting with the image above, I took a fair number of pictures of this rock, which to me looks like the head of a…

  • Another Golden Day on the Silver Coast

    Another Golden Day on the Silver Coast

    Despite it being the back half of November, we were largely cursed with beautiful weather in Portugal. I say “cursed” because in most respects featureless blue skies are challenging to deal with as a landscape photographer. It is generally a lot easier to exploit a parade of interesting clouds that continually migrate across the sky.…

  • Nazaré Beaches

    Nazaré Beaches

    As promised, this week our blog is back at the beach. The first series of five photographs are from around sunset at the same beach as the giant waves, just taken from down on the sand rather than from up on the cliffs. It was overcast and the light was fading, so the images as…

  • More Colorado Fall Color

    More Colorado Fall Color

    Well, fall color is pretty much gone in Colorado now, but a month ago I spent the weekend driving around the mountains looking for it. I had some success, but didn’t find any large aspen groves like I had the week before in Guanella Pass. Most of what I found was smaller groves and isolated…
