Ramona Falls

This spider web had a cool disco-ball effect going on, it lost a little pizazz in my digital capture though.

48mm, f/6.3, 1/160, 5000 ISO [Day 148/366]

I don't like this picture at all, I'm just putting it in to contrast my following slow-shutter shots.

40mm, f/4.0, 1/160, 6400 ISO [Day 148/366]

I took this one remembering, and trying to duplicate to some extent, one I'd taken years ago with a point-n-shoot.

52mm, f/13, 1.3 sec, 200 ISO [Day 148/366]

Here's the picture from 2006 taken with my old point-and-shoot:
[hopefully the difference is apparent!]

23.7mm, f/5.2, 1/15, 100 ISO, Point-N-Shoot

I decided I didn't want to carry my tripod on the hike, so all these shots were taken with the assistance of rocks and logs. Not bad.

38mm, f/13, 2.0 sec, 125 ISO [Day 148/366]

24mm, f/13, 2.0 sec, 125 ISO [Day 148/366]

Here's kind of a "big picture" view, although I don't think it conveys the scale well; It is frowned upon to place a person close enough to the water fall to put the scene into proper perspective.

Berries on a Devils' Club bush; there were too many thorns and bugs for me to be interested in staying to take a picture of any other part of the plant. My ISO was at 4000 anyhow, and I don't like to shoot macros like that.

100mm, f/4.0, 1/160, 4000 ISO [Day 148/366]

Interesting Cliff Wall

Ramona Creek, running through a shady green pocket.

48mm, f/16, 1.6 sec, 100 ISO [Day 148/366]

Mt. Hood

58mm, f/11, 1/250, 125 ISO [Day 148/366]

28mm, f/11, 1/250, 125 ISO [Day 148/366]


  1. I'm really enjoying your blog! Great pictures and I love that you state what lens you use!

  2. Wow, that waterfall is beautiful! You can definitely see the difference between your current work and the p&s shot. I think my favorite pic is that last one of Mt. Hood. Great composition.
