Photo of the Week – HDR Imaging

I went to the Kenmore Camera Expo on Sunday and sat in a session to learn about my new Canon EOS 7D.  While in there, I heard about high dynamic range (HDR) imaging.  After a bit of search on the Internet, I found this link which explains how to do HDR in Adobe Lightroom, my tool […]

Photo of the Week

Admittedly a little edited, but I liked the result.  I’m experimenting with shooting in RAW instead of JPEG and this is one of the pictures I took.  I did a bit with the color afterwards to make the colors more vivid.  I especially like the effect on the windows behind the dragon.  This photo was […]

Another Successful STP

Yes, another 200 mile bicycle ride from Seattle to Portland is in the books.  On the 12th and 13th of July 9500 cyclists got up early and started pedaling to Seattle.  I did the same routine as last year, stopping at the halfway point in Centralia for the night on Saturday, but with my new […]

Seattle Weather and Riding

STP 2007 — Seattle to Portland on a Bicycle

Two friends of mine and I just finished the STP — a 200 mile, 2 day bicycle ride from Seattle to Portland.  Our riding time each day was about 6-1/2 hours, with about 2-1/2 hours of stops added on to that.  The terrain was mostly flat, although there were a few good climbs along with […]

Hydroplanes on Lake Sammamish

I was told at the event that this occurred all across the country, but I had never seen it before — hydroplane racing. These are smaller versions of the hydroplanes sometimes shown on TV. I had my bigger zoom with me — this was shot at 300mm, f/5.6, 1/2000 sec. I did crop the image […]

Whale off of San Juan Island

Shot at with a mere 135mm lens — that should tell you how close this whale was. F7.1, 1/400 sec, ISO 100. Very cool whale watching trip. The guide was great and the whales were cooperative. Um, this should look like the pose I usually have when I lean on my motorcycle. Had to get […]
