Full Frame

I finally took the plunge and bought a used full-frame camera.

Heart Lake

A small lake above Castle Lake.

Road Six

A brief stop on the way north to Mt Shasta.

Crater Lake

Crater Lake is, as the name says, a lake in a volcanic crater. It's quite beautiful, but at the end of the day it's a lake in a crater and not much more - so as far as nature photography is concerned, I figured I had to "do something with the sky". Now, the only thing you can do with the sky is either photograph the Mily Way (or stars), or the light show that happens at sunrise or sunset. Due to Wizard Island being in the west end of the lake (and the East Rim road being closed), that narrowed things down to stars or sunrise for me.

Virtual Granholmstoppen

With a Ricoh Theta SC and a GPS logger, I thought I'd try to create a virtual tour. After a little experimenting I figured out how to attach a tripod to my backpack in such a way as to raise the Theta high enough that my head wouldn't obscure the view forward. Then it was time to set the Theta to interval shooting, and start walking!
