El Arco in Black & White

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
May 24, 2014
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 35 mm: ISO 200: f/13: 1/250 sec.
While there was no way to get good light at the arch because you have to take a boat, the texture just screamed for black and white to me.

Mission of San Jose del Cabo Interior

San Jose del Cabo, Mexico
May 25, 2015
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 27 mm: ISO 400: f/5.6: 1/160 sec.
I love the highlight/shadow sliders in lightroom.  I never could have made this image without them unless I went HDR.  Since I was without a tripod and wouldn't have wanted to impose on their mass, HDR wouldn't have been an option anyway.

Cattle Roaming in Mexico

San Jose del Cabo, Mexico
May 26, 2015
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 27 mm: ISO 100: f/13: 1/125 sec.
Next to our hotel was an estuary and mixed in with the birds were some roaming cattle.  I think its the first time I have seen cows and palm trees.

Coeur d'Alene River

Kingston, Idaho
July 16, 2013
This photograph is a couple years old, but didn't make the cut the first time around.  It comes from our family reunion just north of Kingston, Idaho.  This was me actually setting up and taking test shots for the sunset I was waiting on.  The sunset photographs can be found here, here, here and here.

Downtown Provo

Provo, Utah
September 12, 2015
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 18 mm: ISO 100: f/9:1/160 sec.
I have wanted to get out and try some street photography.  Living in Vegas, it should be easy, but I just can't seem to find the time.  So instead, I took to the streets of Provo while we were there.

Super Moon

Las Vegas, Nevada
September 27, 2015
Fuji X-T1: XF18-135 at 122.6 mm: ISO 400: f/5.6:1/1000 sec.
Unfortunately, I missed the blood moon, but I decided to go out in front of my house and at least capture an image of the super moon.

Tillamook Rock Lighthouse Sunset

Ecola State Park, Oregon
July 1, 2015
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 270 mm: ISO 100: f/16: 1/25 sec.
This is yet another lighthouse shot from Ecola Point.  The sun was high enough in this shot to turn everything orange.  I did basically nothing in post other than blackening the shadows a little.

Provo River under Bridal Veil Falls Pano

Provo, Utah
September 10, 2015
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 38 mm: ISO 100: f/8: .4 sec.
This is a 6 image vertical panorama of the provo river beneath bridal veil falls.  It is basically the same shot as here, but in this one I took the multiple shots to try and preserve more detail and get better resolution.

Provo River

Provo, Utah
September 10, 2015
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 23 mm: ISO 100: f/8: 1/5 sec.
This is a shot of the Provo River maybe a mile or two North of Bridal Veil Falls.  It is actually 2 images that were focus stacked in Photoshop to try and get the maximum depth of field.

Bridal Veil Falls

Provo, Utah
September 10, 2015
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 32 mm: ISO 100: f/13: 2.6 sec.
This shot was taken just before sunrise.  It's a different view of Bridal Veil Falls.
