Zephyr Cove, Lake Tahoe, California.

I dedicate this one to my friend, GRM, who is going through a bit of a tough time, which I can certainly relate (as most of us can, from time to time) to.

A reflection of the "familiar."

Originally uploaded by Douglas Remington - Ethereal Light™

Sometimes we forget about what's immediately around us, and pack up and leave somewhere for a new photographic experience. It is good to take the effort to see deeper in that what we are familiar with. In essence, this photographic philosophy transfers into our personal relationships; many of which fail because we forget to take a similar notice.

Nothing to dramatic here but I shot this less than a week ago in a field next to my backyard near the Portland west hills. It had rained hard earlier in the day and I just noticed the interesting line and reflection of the fresh mud puddle and went for it. Wide angle, long exposure, and all that mumbo-jumbo.

Have a great weekend my friends!

Point Reyes shipwreck, Inverness, California.


Point Reyes shipwreck, Inverness, California.
There is no scarcity of pictures of this once proud boat; especially vulgar color hdr's ;) - so I hope you like it in monochrome instead.

Wind-blown Balsam Root, Columbia River Gorge.

It was so windy out here this morning that I didn't think it was possible to pull off a single photograph (and the ticks didn't make things easy either!). I had to boost my iso up to 400. Rarely will I shoot faster than 100, but I had no choice. When shooting in these condition, you just have to keep pulling the trigger and hope you get a slight break in the gust. I actually like the mix of some moving flowers and some still ones in this scene, it adds to the feeling of motion. All in all not a very good year for wildflowers in the gorge.

16mm, 1/30 sec @ f16.

A field of dreams.

Mexican gold poppies, Point Reyes, California. This image was tough to make, not just because of the windy conditions but because of some other crap I was going through. In the end, this image puts a smile on my face. It's difficult to not be happy with a field of poppies and an electric blue sky void of polution.

The last photo of my spring, Cali road trip. First time I have ever gotten a successful image from interstate 5. Mt. Shasta, California and lenticular clouds. It was very windy filming this. Shot it resting my camera on a fencepost.
