I took this photograph off the coast of California. It’s pretty cool to watch a humpback whale repeatedly breeching.
This is a photograph that I took this week of comet NEOWISE. This is a 15 second exposure with a 400mm lens. NEOWISE is currently visible from North America just after sunset in the northwestern sky. It is fairly faint, but large enough to be seen by eye. An evening this week, take a look between the big dipper and the horizon just after the sky gets dark enough to see a few stars. Binoculars are helpful to see the tail.
I’ve always liked the super lush, green forests of the pacific northwest. I’ve always liked the Olympic Peninsula, but I also like this area on the southwest side of Mount Saint Helens. This particular forest was really neat because it had an open feel with a thick carpet of moss on the forest floor. It was a very quiet place.
