Landscape Photographs


These photographs were taken over a long period of time and are landscapes of places either in Montana or Wyoming.  Part of the reason for including these in the blog is to allow people to choose photos for enlargement to be donated to the Governor's Conference on Aging and the September Evenings fund raiser for the Adult Resource Alliance of Yellowstone County.  I won't add the camera, lens and settings, just the date and time the photos were taken (if available().

Various Travels in December 2014 and January 2015

Once again it's been a while since I've posted.  I've done a little traveling in Montana and Washington since then, so here are the results of the travels.  In Montana I traveled to a meeting in Helena and a Holiday Celebration in Browning and in Seattle I spent 5 great days visiting friends and seeing the sights.  Hope you enjoy these photos.  All photos were shot with a Canon EOS 7D w/ EF-S 18-135 IS Lens.

1.  This Cormorant was seeing my ferry to the Olympic Peninsula off as we prepared to leave Edmonds.  1/27/2015 at 10:23 am.  (f/5.6; 1/3200 sec; ISO 1600; Focal Length 135 mm) 


These next several photos were taken at EMP Museum at Seattle Center.  This was a brainchild of Computer Billionnaire and Seahawks Owner Paul Allen.  It lends many options for color and unique subjects for the camera's eye.
