From this past summer. Not a very good wildflower year in the pacific northwest, but I did manage to find an acceptable patch of lupines in spray park. One thing, their was no short on mosquitos. They were so bad that making any kind of a photo in this alpine wonderland was a challange to say the least...

Believe it or not. This photo is of a pretty faded rainbow. I was driving like mad in the South Island on highway 6 in New Zealand (Aotearoa) trying to find a spot to pull over and a comp. The rainbow just started to fade out as I got to it. Too bad, because it was something else. Anyway, it's still an alright pic, nothing to amazing. The one thing I thought was kind of unique was how low to the ground it was.

Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™



Right after my previous 'wall of light' photo, a loud crack of lightning and thunder busted out and it started to rain and the 'wall of light' moved further east (to the right). I recomposed zoomed out to catch most of it in my frame. I liked the effect of the water droplets on the lake. I had to wipe off my grad filter several times do to the rain but managed to get this photo off with no drops on it.

The orange light entity that was moving across the sky was one of the most dramatic and interesting displays of nature I have ever seen. It was like a sand storm, dust storm, or blizzard in a way except it was more beautiful to my eyes.

I took one more exposure (although I liked this one the best), and it was over. I packed up my gear hiked back to camp and drove off. It snowed here later that night and they closed the road shortly after.

Sparks lake, day 3 - here comes the light!

So after I took the previous sparks lake post, the sky went dark, and it looked like it was done. With concern of hiking back some distance in the dark, I really wanted to pack it up, but decided to wait longer; experience forces this "suffering" upon a photog, lol! I was up on a cliff made up of sharp lava boulders, and while up there, and out the corner of my eyes I noticed the sky started to turn a bit yellow. I'm wondering, "is there something still to come?" "Ah yes, we have a hint of orange!" And oh boy, in a split second, the sky was lighting up! The position of the light forced me out of my former comp and I had no choice but to scramble down them sharp rocks as quickly as possible and get down to the waters level (and at the same time praying to the powers that be to not let it fizzle out before I got to the lake). I didn't even have time to extend my tripod legs, I was kissing the water and squeezed one off with my 2 stop hard grad.

That's south sister in the back ground. I especially like how parts of the mountain slice the light like a knife.

Next photo, it gets better, stay tuned friends! :)

Day 3, Magic hour - Sparks lake

Shortly after I shot the B+W cloud motion photo, the sky started to grey up. I thought my chance of catching some dramatic warm light had passed. Nonetheless, I shot another photo with the 10 stop filter and during the exposure a sweet band of warm narrow light suddenly brushed the basses of South Sister and Broken Top. I had to refrain myself from closing my shutter and removing the filter, and try to take a faster exposure; experience has taught me I may miss everything! So I just kept the shutter open with the hope that I wasn't blowing out the exposure.

30 seconds later (a 64 second exposure overall) I ended the exposure and the light was gone. I immediately checked the new image and was ecstatic with what I found.

Then the sky went total grey and that was that. Or was it???

Stay tuned for the following photos, we are not done yet my friends! :)

Autumn Leopard maple leaf, Oregon


Autumn Leopard maple leaf, Oregon
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

Color Sparks lake photos on the way, for now, here's one from a few days ago.
This is a Leopard maple leaf found here on the banks of Gales Creek. One of the coolest leafs I have ever seen 4 sure!

I have heard a lot of people pouting about how it's a bad fall here in the northwest. I have to say, its how you look at it. I know that is obvious and easy to say. But for me it's been one of my most productive. My Autumn Mt. Jefferson photos this year prove that there is pleanty of awe inspiring fall colors out there; sometimes you just can't drive to it, you have to hoof it, really.

I didn't stop my lens down all the way because I wanted the leaf to be the main focus with the s curve of the creek to simply compliment it.

I kinda wished I had used a polarizer here, however it was raining so hard that I didn't feel like running up the slippery muddy bank to go fetch it out of the car; oh well...

There was also a some of distracting twigs in the river scene which I digitally removed. I really like that part. I refuse to do the "chop job" while in nature, but the digital world lets me sleep at night (when I'm not up late processing, lol! :)

Cheers!

Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

Day one, Sparks lake.

Nothing to spectacular here. I have been to Sparks lake several times (twice this year, in fact last visit it rained the whole time; not a sigle photo :(), always missing out on the grand light show. In fact I met a Eugene photographer who has come over 20 times to never see the good light show! I promised myself to stay until it happened this time. The great thing about this trip is that I got to car camp rather than carrying my camera and overnight gear in the wilds. So it gave me time to think, relax, meditate and explore.

The first couple of days, I got nothing but clear skies and no dramatic sunset. It was really cold. The lake would partially freeze at night, than thaw by evening only to repeat. I saw a bear close to my camp while taking a stroll in the moonlight. So I had that on my mind throughout the days and nights.

I pulled off some nice B+W's I'll post in the days to come. One in fact looks kind of spooky, so I'll post that on Halloween.

The third day, I had a hunch that the good show was going to happen, and oh boy did it ever! I am going to post my shots in sequence. This is my first photo which is of Mt. Bachelor with the moonrise and some alpine glow.

Stay tuned for some more later!

The Bigger Picture.


The Bigger picture.
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

The Bigger Picture, Mt. Washington and the Milky Way.

Here's a photo I made during that windy night at Mt. Washington.

Up in the mountains there is much less light pollution from the city so the stars really shine well. Looking at the milky way and the rest of the cosmos really makes one think of big things.

I forget I am a Portlander. I forget I am an Oregonian. I forget I am an American. I forget I am from a particular race and have a certain color of skin (or lack thereof). And I forget that I am an earthling. I only feel as if I am one with THE ALL.

I can't help but think if more people would stop to look up at the heavens more often that they might have a similar feeling. I can't help but believe people would be less divided by "patriotism," religion, and other ideologies.

For me, no temple or church can match the beauty of the temple of the night sky.

It is mid blowing to think that everyone of those stars has planets revolving around them like we have with our sun. And what we can see is just an unfathomable small selection of what is out there.

I know this is not a technically perfect celestial - astronomy image; there's a fair amount of noise from the extremely high iso and some color banding. The wind was blowing so hard that I got a dose of vibration surely in the exposure, however I thought I would share nonetheless.

A Garden of Light


A Garden of Light
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

Mt. Washington and alpine lake, Oregon

This image may give the impression of a calm and peaceful morning, but read ahead.

I made this image yesterday morning. I was camped out here and all night long there was what felt to be close to hurricane force winds. The weather forecast said windy, but this was above and beyond what I imagined. Luckily I have a Bibler Itent which is used in expeditions and is as bullet proof as they get. But, I have to say, with the howling wind and fear of a tree falling on me, I don't think I slept at all. It made me remember one night camping in Leslie Gulch with my buddy, Matt. He had his tent, and I had my Bibler. I got up in the middle of the night to water a bush, and I swear to god, there was Matt with his tent ripped to shreds all around and he was laying in his boxers out in the open wind, funny as sheet!

Anyways. In the morning I hauled my butt out to the lake for my comp, and I could barely walk, the wind was that strong. Even windier than Leslie gulch and my mono lake experience with my cousin, Alan! I'm thinking, how in the hell am I going to pull this off? I hooked my camera bag to my tripod for weight stability, screwed on my 10 stop nd, and pulled out one of my homemade neutral grads. Here comes the light, woohoo! I'm trying to shield my camera from the wind as much as possible and at the same time "dodge and burn" the sky with my grad, and I cannot feel my fingers at all at this time (despite my hand warmers). I checked exposure on the photograph, it was a bit off, and then out of nowhere these two little lenticulars appear to the right. I wanted to not use such a wide lens so Mt. Washington would be a little closer and larger, but I had to get the lenny's in the comp as well. I had no choice but to go 16mm. and step my feet in the cold wet water. I screwed the grad off, recomposed, locked the mirror up and did my usual neutral grad routine. From experience, I knew this would be my last exposure with good light, so I was worried that the exposure would be too long to capture the lenny's with most of their form, but I had to let this exposure run a long time and just hope for the best.

So the light looked like I was ready for me to end the exposure. I did so, checked my histograms, everything looked great! I then looked back up at the mountain and it was completely hidden by grey clouds with no color. That's how fast these things happen.

My hands were so cold and numb at this time, that I couldn't even grab my camera and tripod, I had to scoop them up with my arms and headed back to camp to warm up.
The long exposure evened out all the crazy waves into this serene and mystical looking image. Hard to imagine with all the white-caps on that were on the water (and my legs), LOL!

In a future posting I'll give a tutorial on how to make superior ND grads for longs exposures.

16mm, 248seconds, iso 125 @ f9.5.

Oregon tundra; a carpet of red, gold, and Mt. Jefferson
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

Although not the best wildflower year in the pacific northwest, this is the best for fall color I have seen in the high country of Oregon in the Mt. Jefferson wilderness. I hiked up a hill near my camp to get the lay of the land, and saw this intense patch of red. It was far off trail so I had to be mindful of how to get back and to not disturb the fragile ecosystem there.

What you see here is mountain ash (yellow orange) and red blueberry and huckleberry. Not sure what some of the other yellow flora is.

Photographed 10 days ago while colors where in its prime.

Serenity and Chinese made shutter releases. Mt. Jefferson, Oregon.
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

Early morning perseverance.

Here's one of my last Jefferson photos for now (I'll post a couple more over the next few days). This photograph I made in the early morning while camping in the Mt. Jefferson wilderness. I had a 10 stop nd filter on and was hand holding a 2 stop hard grad with a remote release with my mirror locked down. All of a sudden my camera was frozen. Nothing would work. I could not trigger the shutter. I played with all my settings to no avail. I thought, "wow maybe this is my first memory card failure." So I ran like a gazelle to my camp grabbed a fresh memory card. Nothing, same thing. So now I'm grabbing at straws thinking that somehow my new 25 megapixel camera was in effect a boat anchor at this point. The light was changing fast and I was getting bummed. So as I went to take everything down and pack it up, I noticed after I unplugged my remote shutter release, "the beast" came back to life! Now what? I have to take an 144 second exposure with my frozen little fingers on the camera and hold a nd grad on it at the same time - and not breath at all, all the way through the exposure to avoid shaking the camera. I had to invoke my previous experiences as a marksman and former x-ray and MRI patient - which means, do not breath or move for way longer than humanly possible! So I changed from a hard, to soft grad, and after I pulled it away at the end of the exposure (with my frozen paws) I looked at the instant gratification on the back of my camera. I then zoomed in everywhere to see if I messed it up. Somehow, I lucked out, and here you have it. Nothing too special, but kind of pretty and serene. Left this one a bit dark and moody.

Lesson: Do not use cheap Chinese made shutter releases when important business is to be conducted! ;)

Ghastly contrails in special places wilderness rant.


Ghastly contrails in special places wilderness rant.
Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

Here's my rant about wilderness. I don't know if it legal or not, but like many of you I sure get sick of all the air traffic over sacred places. Mt. Jefferson and the three sisters wilderness are obvious popular flight paths. It's nearly impossible to get photo with the sky without contrails. I'm thinking about raising hell with congress on this (feel free to join me). I doubt a few photographers have little power to change FAA policy however.

On another note.

I like dogs, and think they have a place out in the woods. But I have to tell you, it seems like everyone brings them up here to the very fragile Jefferson park. I thought it was illegal to do so, but I must be mistaken. There is restoration attempts going on out here, but apparently it's ok for dogs to tear up the fragile ecosystem while digging after ground squirrels and what not. I can't tell out how many dog turds I stepped over as well. Can't tell you how frustrated I was trying to get some solitude in this heavenly place when all the dogs are just barking all the time. I really prefer to hear coyotes and not domestic dogs in places like this. Please people, in special areas like this, please consider leaving Fido at home. This is a true wilderness.

I will post some pretty non contrail shots later :)
