Autumn and Smoke – Some iPhone Photos

Some photos shot with my iPhone using Lightroom DNG for taking the pictures these last few weeks. Autumn came early, and then we were stuck inside for almost two weeks due to the smoke pollution from all the forest fires.

Espresso Chalet in Gold Bar

Harry and the Hendersons merchandise, Costco treats, overpriced bad ice cream, espresso, and a view. My review? Meh out of 10. Only the ice cream shot was edited – shot RAW with my iPhone. Everything else was straight out of the X-T4.

Gold Bar and Bridal Veil Falls – Roughing It

Nowadays, the last place I want to be is in a city with riots, Coronavirus, and every event cancelled. Thus, we are continuing to explore Washington and renting homes for extended weekends in remote locations. This weekend, our travels took us to Gold Bar – a place that I’d never heard of.

Sometimes an iPhone is Better

Today was my 43rd birthday. It was a great day! The girls wanted to go to the zoo and Chocolpolis – sounded good to me! I brought along the 70-200mm f/4 Panasonic lens and got some terrible shots. It was midday sun, dirty glass between a lot of the animals and myself, and very harsh ...
