Graffiti Train

3 exposure HDR
I was visiting my brother in Utah and he brought us to the Great Salt Lake because we had never been before. He knew of an old abandoned train car he thought I would like taking a picture of and he brought me to this beautiful thing! :) It was sitting next to an old abandoned building all prettied up with graffiti too both sitting right on the sand with the Great Salt Lake in the background!

Haystack Rock

We went to Pacific City this week and after the clouds burned off it was gorgeous!  I don't think I've ever been there when the tide was this low. There were millions of barnacles and mussels covering the rocks and many, many starfish clinging to the rocks as well. It was awesome. It was hard to try and find a shot without people in it because it was pretty crowded. This is a 3 exposure HDR.

Barn on 50th

I've photographed this barn before...I think in the winter or fall, but wasn't real happy with the results, so I wanted to go back and last Friday - I did. I uploaded 3 pictures - all processed very differently.

Horses For Sale

Yesterday I was able to drive around looking for things to take pictures of. I had a really good time and I was only out for a couple of hours, but it was great. It's one of  my favorite things to do.I headed to Battle Ground because that's where all the cool barns and old, interesting things are. I had no idea where roads would take me and I ended up on one where there were about a dozen miniature horses for sale in a pasture full of yellow wildflowers. It really was beautiful. One horse was very curious and watched me the entire time. Another looked up just in time for me to shoot 3 bracketed exposures. Here are a few pictures that I took.

Hoquiam, Washington Shipyard

We go through the small town of Aberdeen and Hoquiam on our way to the family reunion site at Camp Bethel near Ocean Shores every year. This Shipyard caught my eye on the way there so I decided on the way back to snap some pictures of it. Here's a zoomed up version of it but something feels off with this edit and I can't quite put my finger on it...but I'm putting it up anyway. It's a 3 exposure HDR. If you want to see a panoramic I did of the area, click the link:

Ferris Wheel (re-edit)

I haven't been going out and taking many pictures lately because I can't find new places to go to. It's frustrating and that's why I'm really looking forward to moving in a couple of months. We do have a trip planned in a couple of weeks near Ocean Shores (which I have been to many times) but hopefully it will get me out of my photo funk!

Without new pictures to edit, I have going back and re-editing old stuff. This is of a ferris wheel I took last month. The first edit can be found here:
