Mount Sibillini. I was already about 1600m up for this after a fairly hairy drive; my legs decided they were not interested in the full 2500 to get to the peak. But I liked the view (and remembering how to photography).

aaaaahhhhhh don’t start me posting flower photos


Can you describe a bit about how you took these?


I haven’t been motivated to shoot at all this year but this past week I got the itch to get back out. Went back to this dam in northern MD that’s home to a huge population of Bald Eagles and got some of my favorite shots I’ve ever taken:


Really beautiful!!

Sure! These were all taken with a Leica Digilux 2 (which has a 35mm equivlent zoom range of 28-90mm) using the in-camera black and white jpeg setting. In post, I only adjusted the contrast slightly. The first three were taken from a boat in Crater Lake, the 4th and 5th were taken from the water’s edge in Crater Lake, the next three were at Hobbit Beach, and the last on a boat tour in Depoe Bay. That boat was moving a lot, so it was impossible to get the horizon level. Thanks!


Thanks for the details! Some of them felt familiar but I couldn’t put my finger on it, but I spent a few days at Crater Lake a few years back. Really an amazing place!

That default b/w setting really has a lot of personality!

I went on a mini road-trip recently to Yalgorup National Park. There was an incoming storm and I just loved the colours when this happens:


The deepness on the blacks in this are great. Beautiful pictures!

There aren’t many trees

most just go straight brown


So many amazing photos in this thread. Really inspiring stuff. I’ll share a couple as well. First two are at my home, the third is at Zion Nat’l park. All iPhone photos.
