Germany’s city of Munich. A view from the sky.
It was a gorgeous sunrise in Seattle. Farewell 2010!
Some scenes are really enhanced with High Dynamic Range photography. Architecture – such as the Notre Dame de Paris – shown here from its main entrance – is certainly one of them. The Notre Dame Cathedral – located on the Ile de la Cite, in Paris’ fourth arrondissement – was completed in 1345, and is an excellent example of French Gothic architecture.
Paris Skyline Photograph for my 100th blog posting
I’ve just returned from a long trip overseas. I was away for about six weeks in Europe. The last place I visited – where I took the photograph you see above – was in Paris. This shot was captured in the evening from the top of the Arche De Triumph. Thanks for stopping by the check this out!
Fremont Viewpoint Gasworks Park
Gasworks Park is full of great views. This shot is taken westward, revealing the Aurora Bridge (infamous in Seattle for suicidal ‘jumpers’) and the first fringes of the Fremont Neighborhood. The waterway in the image above leads to the Ballard Locks and finally out into the Puget Sound.
HDR Digital Photos are often great for these cloudy urban landscape shots. Hope you enjoy this photo and have a great day!
Pacific Northwest Spring Photos
With some more digital processing skills under my belt, I’m presenting a Spring Blossom photo from earlier this year. They bloomed early this year, largely – it seems – because of the mild winter we experienced.
The left half of the sky was originally white and blown out in the photo above. I used the clone stamp tool to mimic the shades of blue in the clouds on the right – painting over the blown out highlights so as to match the natural blue tones in the sky.
Downtown Seattle Gasworks Park
This was my third trip to Gasworks Park in the evening. I was pleased with how these night skyline images of downtown Seattle came out.
The reflection against Lake Union turned out well – I shot this at around 4:30 in the morning. Lucky for me most Seattle parks are open to the public at 4 AM. Hope you like this one and thanks for stopping by.
Kerry Park from Queen Anne
Kerry Park’s view of Seattle is probably the most photographed Seattle skyline in the city. You can’t get much closer to the buildings then this small park devoted to its view of the city. Add to this that the perspective from Kerry Park makes the Space Needle appear as though it sits at the center of Seattle’s downtown proper (which it does not) – and you’ve got a recipe for a very popular view.
Since downtown Sea-town is on the Puget Sound, large cloudy weather systems swoop into Seattle frequently. This photo captures just one such cloudy moment in the afternoon at Kerry Park in early spring of this year. I hope you like this shot and have a great Tuesday. Cheers!
Tulip Field Close Up – Part 3
This shot provides a closer perspective of the Skagit Valley Tulips featured in the photography from this week.
From afar, the rows and columns of Tulips can seem to blend together, but up close it is easy to see these Tulips are neatly arranged. Tulips are planted in soft silty soil which seems to hold a lot of water. When you walk on the Tulip soil, you can feel the water beneath the top layers of soil, like walking on a firm water bed.
Let me know what you think, and have a great spring. Cheers!
