May 2oth was “The Evolution of the Fine Art Image” seminar given by Bryson Leidich. Some of the attendees went on a cold and windy road trip on Sunday, the 21st, putting their skills into practice. It was a search for a beautiful sunset, but there was none to be found that night.

This photo was taken in the afternoon while my son and I explored Olympic National Park. The weather was wet which is not unusual since part of the park is considered a temperate rain forest. There were occasional sightings of the sun. My goal was to capture some sense of the rugged beauty of the stream.
Fuji XT-2 with Fuji XF 18-135 lens at 20mm. F16, Iso 400, .3 sec. Single shot, no compositing. Manfrotto tripod, Kirk ballhead. Developed in Photoshop.

The photo which I have titled “Sunrise at the Elkhart Depot” was taken on August 14, 2016 at 7:06am. I had been taking photos at the Elkhart Amtrak station several times that summer trying to get a nice sunrise coming down the tracks, along with a train coming down the tracks. Unfortunately, that morning I had a beautiful sunrise coming down the tracks but by the time a train came down the tracks the sky had lost its colors.
I was using my Canon EOS 6D and this photo was shot at 1/125th sec, f/10, at ISO-100. The focal length was 24mm.
