Tonight January 4th we had another lovely sunset in the PNW, and again I caught just the tail end going into twilight from White Salmon, Washington. Here are tonight’s images! Click on the image to see it bigger on my photo sharing site. The previous post was another sunset in the Gorge on January 2, 2014. It is already a good year!
also regarding my calendars this year… I am out of both Mount Adams and The Gorge, but I still have desk Calendar and Fire Calendars. You can see more about those and my coffee table books here, just click on the photo below:
Sunrise on Dec 22 was an amazing sight to behold, lifting the spirits to the heavens. So far I have come up with this set of processed images for sale. clicking on any of these will take you to the image in my SmugMug portfolio. I can gaurantee there will be more from this day as time goes on!
I just ordered this Triptych of one of these images to use in upcoming Gallery shows in the White Salmon and Hood River area of the Columbia River Gorge.

I got to see and photograph my first large Lunar Rainbow, or Moonbow and it was exciting! I am adding all the shots I took so you can see the progression. at the end I am adding a website that is superb for looking up information on all sorts of Atmospheric Optics.

I am rather fascinated with all such optics, and my collection is growing! My Flickr Set for Atmospheric Optics

Today I was able to get out and about for awhile with a friend locally, for a short time. We decided to drive East of White Salmon to a small roadside falls near Rowland Lake to practice shooting iced up waterfalls. It is so seldom I get the chance to shoot icicles that it always takes a little messing around with settings to look for the right ones! I remembered that when shooting ice and snow it is best to actually over expose, while watching histograms closely to avoid bad blow out of the highlights.
A land of fairy castles and undersea bubbles greeted us up the Old Highway 8
Now you get to see the castles without getting cold!
