Definitely quiet here on the blog of late, and this post is off topic in regards to photography… I’m off to the home opener for the Seattle Mariners tonight, and there’s a big change this season… Hall of fame broadcaster Dave Niehaus’ voice was silenced this offseason. A vivid memory of my childhood growing up, working out in a field with the radio cranked up, well before the days of .500 baseball. Above is a musical tribute by Seattle hip hop artist Macklemore, who will be performing before the game. Undoubtedly I’m going to shed a tear or two for the passing of a part of my childhood. RIP Dave.

Recently spent some time unwinding with my family along the Washington coast in Ocean Shores. A few of my favorite snaps from a blustery January day after the jump…

Watch this. ‘Nuf said. Hat tip to my buddy Scotty R. for for pointing me to this piece.

I ran across this video from last nights snow in Seattle, which many are calling “snoverrated” after much media hype, and it looks like some folks were out having some fun. Enjoy!

A sequence of the full lunar eclipse through a thin cloud cover over Shoreline, WA, on December 20, 2010. We had a lot of clouds and even rain showers around the region and I thought for a bit I was going to miss the event, but in an attempt to perservere, I laid the seat back in my car in the driveway and watched through the moonroof, sporadically opening it to capture a frame between clouds and rain drops. Then as the full eclipse hit, I got about two minutes of clear sky. Just enough frames to stitch a little sequence together in Photoshop. For gear heads, I used a Nikon D300 and 400mm f/2.8 lens, and cropped the image tighter in post production. Below a single of the full lunar eclipse.

The full lunar eclipse photographed at 11:43 p.m. as momentarily viewed between a shifting cloud cover in Shoreline, WA, on Monday, December 20, 2010. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

It’s that time where we have an onslaught of “best of” lists and trips down memory lane. It’s a given that I’m going to click through just about an gallery that involves photography and thought I’d round them up here on the blog so I could have a spot to find them again, and so you could check them out too. I’ll give an update note when I add more picture links to the list. Enjoy the feast!

Winter is upon us here in the Pacific Northwest and mountain pass road reports are essential. The WSDOT has a free app for iPhone and Android that has traffic, pass reports, ferries and more for the whole state of Washington. For iPhone users I hear there is an update in the next week or so that will also include pass camera to see that fresh snowfall! Truly useful source of travel info.

UPDATE: Hmmm… The Vimeo version is no longer posted, so you’ll have to use this link to see it at the Arc’teryx website.

I was shown this preview for “All.I.Can.” by my buddy Ian this week and wanted to share it here with you. I’ve seen a lot of ski movies, but this creates a fresh look and feel to the footage using time lapse. Can’t wait to see the whole thing when it is released. For all those mountain goers out there, pray for snow!

I wanted to thank take a moment and thank all the veterans we have served our country. I’ve spent part of today thinking about and remembering my grandfather who served in World War II. Above, is a veteran, Hu Riley, that I have had the honor to photograph more than once who is the subject in late photographer Robert Capa’s D-Day image of a soldier in the surf. Again, my appreciation to all who have served.

Grammy-award winning singer John Legend recently made an appearance for Hopelink, a Seattle-area charity serving homeless and low-income families, during their annual fundraising luncheon. I was assigned to photograph the noted recording artist during a brief media interview time prior to the lunch appearance.
