I did Norse Peak on Saturday with two good friends. 10 miles with 3,000 of vertical, millions of lupines. I knew this would be fantastic, but it was so much better than I hoped.



Rumor has it there's a 14,000 foot volcano in this picture. Seriously a lot of people around here believe in Bigfoot and Mount Rainier.



My friend admiring the summit view.



Established summit bivvy.



Meadowbaggers.



I wanted to take the trail through this pic to get back to the cars. How can you argue with that? Apparently by saying "you're out of water, and we don't know if it's longer or harder that way."



Burn.



Corn lily.



Delightful burn meadow.

it’s a good getting out and creative distraction from being home and telecommuting so much lately. Plus a reward for all the extra work i’m doing during this time.

au revoir pour quelques mois

I shot this last night from Alki. I've never done a comet before, I'm trying to figure this out. Took my 300 mm last night, everything I read and everybody I talked to said I need all the lens I can get. There's really no way to get any foreground into a shot like this, it's not terribly interesting. I'm going back out tonight with my 135 mm. If the weather holds up I'd like to try my 24 mm too. (I don't like carrying a bag o' lenses, I could drop it, leave it behind, etc.)

I'm very tempted to hike up a mountain Saturday afternoon, shoot the comet from the summit, leave Sunday morning after getting some sunrise pics.

I need to go back to the raw files on these two. I got the colors wrong.

Very nice Seattle. Two common ways for night shot WB. Daylight looks way too warm, but is said to be accurate and preferred by the astronerds. Overly cool makes for nice blue sky and preferred by artists, but kills the true star/comet colors.

I like the presentation of the two above maybe a bit cool. I see a few hot pixels in bottom image - same place as the image in post 4384

Some new street art in London's east end this morning. I like how the geisha is seemingly raising her kimono to avoid the real world rubbish bags.

I got home at 2 am for this. Actually, that isn't true, I got home at 2 am for a different picture, I'm still working on it. I shot it from the catwalk around the lookout, I collapsed the tripod legs, came down the ladder, and before I left I set the camera down for one more pic. I didn't want to expand the legs, so I just put it on the ground and pointed it in what I thought was the right direction without being able to see through the VF. Really a hail mary shot. I wish I'd taken another pointed a little more to the right.

If you look close, you can see a second tail to the left of the main one, seeming to form a V. I need to figure out how to bring that up just a little. It's so faint!

From the false summit of North Mountain. The horizon is the Sisters, Komo Kulshan the White Watcher, Shuksan the beautiful, and the Pickets: Terror, Fury, Despair, etc.

If you look close, you can see climbers on Mount Baker.



Did I make Shuksan too bright?

Sauk Mountain. This is a shorter, easy hike, with a trail most of the way to the peak. It's only a medium height peak. So a lot of people never do this one, it isn't hard or fun/exciting enough. Which is a shame because Sauk is a view peak.

That dog had never hiked before, in fact he'd only been in a car once or twice previously, which made for a terrifying drive to the trailhead for Rocky. He was exhausted before it was over, and didn't understand switchbacks; on the way back down Veronica would hike down through one, he'd just turn around and try to follow her, going back up. It was a hot day, must have been a lot hotter for him, the snow must have been heavenly. He'd never seen snow before. He was rolling around in it, sliding down hills on his back, eating it, just a big happy dog.

The summer dog days are quiet bird-wise, so it was a great surprise to see a couple of Virginia rails with 5-6 chicks today. They usually hang out deep in the reedbeds and are very difficult to see, but the adults were busy running around on the mud, pulling up worms and dashing off to feed them to the nearest chick..
