Ever wonder how some photographers can balance the light of a rising Moon with the Sun lighting the mountains? How they get that “perfectly” exposed Moon with a beautiful color on the mountain peaks? It’s really not that hard.

Didn’t really have much as I was limited to what I could do due to surgery. The whole month of October I was limited to 10 pounds. Still I shot a few football games, a breaking news story, and some of my own projects. Enjoy my Photo of the Month of October.

A few photos of Bellingham and Mount Baker as the setting Sun cast a pink hue over Bellingham Bay a few weeks ago. I didn’t expect the clouds to break and the sky to light up.

Just a quick post. As most of the world knows, the peak for the annual Perseid Meteor Shower was this morning August 12, 2016. Many said it was a fantastic show. It was nice, but I wouldn’t say it was one of the best I saw.

A few weeks ago I went out to shoot the last sunset of the year. I headed to one of my favorite places to shoot. The sky was clear, the air crisp and cold, the views were fantastic. Plus, with the cold air, the visibility was astonishing.
From Boulevard Park in Bellingham, Wash., you could see Mt. Robie Reid in British Columbia. The added bonus was the beautiful light cast upon it by the setting Sun
