Sunrise Through the Mist

Sunrise Through the Mist

Some friends and I had come to Reflection Lake to wait for a colorful sunrise. We were certain the sun would rise, but not certain about the colors. What we got instead was a gorgeous scene of mist rising from the lake and the forest occasionally peeking through. I used an graduated ND 4 filter on the top half of this this shot because the sun was beginning to really brighten the mist.

Does it get better than this in Seattle? Hardly. When the clouds are gone, this place is a gem! This shot was taken in the summer right as the sun was setting in a nearly cloudless sky. The trees framing the scene are like a hallmark of this gorgeous, green place!

Night time

Ghostly Snake Train

In this time exposure a slow moving train on the left turns into a ghostly, slithery shape that dimly reflects the foggy mood of the lights ahead.
