Morning Light Project – That’s a Wrap

It hardly seems possible that I started this project a year ago. But as "they" say, time does fly by. It's been a pretty wonderful year filled with, mostly, beautiful mornings and great light. So I'll end this project with this month's shot from Kauai as well as my favorite images from my year long... Continue Reading →

Morning Light – September 2016

September is one of my favorite months for photography in the San Juan Islands. Sandwiched between "Fogust" and "Stormtober" it is the Goldilocks of fall months. The light is amazing, the mornings and evenings are still mostly pleasant and the light is exceptional. And this month was extra special for me as I came home... Continue Reading →

Morning Light – August 2016

August was an enjoyable and very successful month of early morning photography. Enjoyable since I made it out often and successful because a number of these early morning wake up calls resulted in inspiring images that made it to my "keeper" list. I can't help but start off the image parade with the August full... Continue Reading →

Morning Light – July 2016

My quest for compelling morning imagery for July was mostly met with misses, near misses and plenty of outright failures. In the end I managed only two keepers. Not that there is anything wrong with 2 keepers. That makes up a fine month actually. It's just that I had planned a bunch of interesting shoots... Continue Reading →

Morning Light – June 2016

Another busy summer month with only one trip out for the early morning light to show for it. But the shots from this month are far more involved than that. This lone shoot was the result of planing that started months ago, maybe even last year. I've been spending a bunch of time during my... Continue Reading →

Morning Light – May 2016

Spring is the busiest time of year for my photography. The weather turns warm and beautiful and the night sky clears and reveals its, almost forgotten, beauty. It's also the time when my commercial / real estate work really kicks off.  And I have been pulled hard by this amazing spring weather with stunning sunrises &...

Morning Light – April 2016

Definitely a bit tardy on April's Morning Light post. Not because I haven't been out shooting sunrises because this has been one of busiest photography months that I can remember. I've probably averaged 20-30 hours of photography a week between my landscape work and my commercial real estate clients. And this month's images comes from... Continue Reading →

Morning Light – March 2016

March has been an absolutely incredible month of morning light. And I was fortunate enough to capture some images that have become some of favorites for the year. As Spring has sprung the weather has become way more favorable and much more reliable. For this first series I was headed out with an idea for... Continue Reading →

Morning Light – February 2016

Sony A7Rii + 55mm f/1.8 1/60s @ f/1.8 iso 800 It's pretty obvious from the new title that I'm changing my weekly morning light project from a weekly to a monthly. I'll still be going out weekly as often as I can, but I'm going to start summarizing my shots monthly. Having weekly posts was... Continue Reading →

Morning Light – Week 13

Sony A7Rii + 70-200mm f/4 1/100s @ f/5.6 iso 160 Some lessons need to be repeated over and over until they are learned. Hopefully learned that is. Such is my lesson about getting up for sunrises. This was one I almost missed because I put just a bit too much faith in my weather prediction... Continue Reading →

Morning Light – Week 12

Lopez Island, WA (21 January 2014) Fuji X-E1 + 50mm 1/320s @ f/? iso 200 Some off island travel and inclement weather was all I needed to call a mulligan for this weeks Morning Light post. And since I've been spending a fair bit of time cleaning up my archives I thought I would serve... Continue Reading →

Morning Light – Week 11

Sony RX1R + Zeiss Sonnar T* 35mm f/2 1/30s @ f/4 iso 1000 This week's morning shoot was luxurious as it was neither early or nor cold. As Maui doesn't have a reputation for either.  The only really challenge was that we are staying on the west side of Maui so my sunrise images would be... Continue Reading →
