12/21.  Big Sur Sunset and waves_DSC1781.  I captured this at Sunset in the middle of the rocks and waves.  The waves would come crashing in and through this little trough between the rocks.  My friend I was shooting with got stuck down in the trough when the wave came in and almost lost his camera!  Wow!  Thanks for the awesome comments on my image!  My SmugMug site has other images you should check out and also follow my latest on my Facebook Page here:  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Yosemite-and-Bay-Area-Nature-Photography-by-John-Harrison/190152125697

February 10...  Beach #4.  Almost every day I take Blif for a walk along the beach. Especially in autumn and winter the sky puts up magnificent shows. The other day this sky came up covering most colors even a bit of green at the left. The show went on for app. 10 minutes, and then it was all over.
September 11, 2009  John..  I took your advice last night....  half the bottle.  ;)    Yesterday was just one more chapter in a month and a half of nearly constant stress.  It started with a very unpleasant surprise having to do with Ian's job (he still has it - nothing has changed with his position -just unpleasant financial news).  Then some extended family issues that is very emotional and highly charged and yesterday - the air conditioner decided to start screetching like someone was taking a power tool to it.  $650.00+ later we have a new fan motor.  I really wanted to drink the entire bottle but couldn't because I have to be out and on the road by 7:15am. So John (very smart man that he is) suggested I just have half the bottle - which I did.    Emily is home from school today - not feeling well at all.  I will probably have her in to the doctor later this afternoon if I can get an appt. Why do kids (at least mine) always seem to get sick on Fridays and then there is the mad dash to the dr before the weekend hits.
Atlantic way -    The bridge on the atlantic ocean  in Norway.
Gorgeous sunrise yesterday!!! The water was so still and the sky had such unique color. I shot all around the harbor for over 2 hours! Unlike today, where I overslept and missed the whole thing!  Plymouth Harbor, Ma
050211  Tree in Shohola Falls    Long week last week with the shutter failing on my Nikon D50 and computer problems at work. Took a drive to Delaware Water Gap over the weekend to get away. Trying to adjust to my D60 but I liked my older camera.
Butterfly - Jun 3 2009  I was shooting roses today when all of a sudden 7 butterfies drew my attention. They seemed particularly fond of these tiny pinkish red flowers... and were not disturbed by my presence. I had a good 150 shots of them in less than 10 minutes. I like this shot because of the neat details on the head.
2-02: This is another from Saturday's sunset. Several people have asked if the colors are real (natural) in yesterday's. It was taken as three bracketed exposures but only at -1, 0 and 1. Then combined in Photomatix. Then final processing in Capture NX2 (mostly brightness and focus adjustments) I didn't change any colors. I did actually have to desaturate a little because the orange and reds tend to be over saturated sometimes. I used the same processing on today's post. This one was actually taken a few minutes before the one I posted yesterday, so the clouds are more orange than red or pink
20100224-4872    ~~Fogged and dreary rising;   the weather's disagreeable too.  Awake too late, eyes open, scrutinizing sleep.  Fatigued, not tired.  Why? I haven't a clue.  Seldom works, that senseless habit, enumerating sheep.  Adding insult to injury, I believe I dreamt, a ewe?    What a bizarre way to begin one's day;  much less, stretched across two.    Weather guys preach prediction;  Nay, they ALERT, ADVISE, and WARN,  more wintry white stuff approaches.  Alas, my view only precipitates scorn.    Cold rain, go away!  To you, I've no more to say. ~~      As you can see, the white stuff did make an appearance, a brief, gray, and wet one; so I added my own touch of surreality, by boosting the color to the max.  Would have needed a bigger box of Crayolas to get any more out of this one, the file was just too lax.      Thanks for the words on the box turtle carapace. I have another one waiting in the wings; still life insurance for a different rainy day.  Donna asked, "So, just what DO turtles pine for?"  I don't know, but I'm willing to wager it's not lying on their backs counting sheep, stars, or snowflakes. :D    Finally, as a few have undoubtedly noticed by now, I made a commitment to myself at the beginning of the year to expand my vocabulary and advance my creative(?) writing skills.  Both had taken a turn for the worse quite some time ago, along with proper punctuation, grammar and, most critical, thought.  Oddly enough, this world of brevity we now live in, with Facebook, Twitter, SmugMug, and so on, is where I happen to spend most of my writing time.  It sort of goes against everything these sites were designed for; so excuse the long-winded captions, comments and silly prose.  It's just my way of expanding what I knows.  Of course I take none of this too seriously, just like my photos, and anything I put out is open to comment, criticism, or cajolery.

I have been trying to get an image of the illusive Moonbow for a long time. This evening on the way back from the Volcano there it was!! It was cold, windy and raining but I toughed it out. After getting some images the CF card failed and all the pictures were gone. Undaunted I dug into my camera bag and pulled another card! I had just enough time to get two pictures off before it dissapeared!!! Here is what I got!!!!  Camera and Settings  Canon 1Ds Mark III with a Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L and a Manfrotto Carbon Fiber Tripod and Manfrotto Midi Ball Head.  Image was taken at ISO 1600 at f/2.8 for 30 seconds in RAW  Processed in Lightroom 3 and CS5
An early October snowstorm in Colorado Springs; best viewed in the larger sizes.  I think it is always challenging to try to capture the actual snow falling so that it looks natural.  In the largest sizes, you can really see the snow falling, so I was pleased with this.  I sure appreciated your comments on my shot of the snow at the hospital parking lot.  This community is always so encouraging.  Hope you had a good weekend!
Bayview Sunrise, Bayview TX

I think it's a good thing that I'm not going to be living this close to the bay when we move TX, otherwise I'd probably spend all my time on the docks. I really love seascape photography when I get a chance to do it. I really like how the long exposure effect smoothes out the water and of course the sunrise reflection.

This is a two exposure HDR and the exposure times are 8 and 15 seconds. I use Photomatix Pro, version 4.1.3, but thanks to Art's question yesterday have now updated to 4.2.3. In Photomatix I use tonemapping. See my post yesterday for more info an links to Trey's HDR tutorial. Yesterday I also provided links to a new lighting show with Joel Grimes on Framed Network called Lit up, check out episode seven. Lastly, Creative Live is broadcasting live and FREE all weekend. The workshop is titled "Sales Sales Sales," taught by photo business guru Tamara Lackey. I have seen Tamara's previous workshops on Creative Live and she really knows business. Creative Live broadcasts replays all night long so you have two chances (or three if you stay up really late) to catch it.
