Where things are and perhaps where i hope to have them lead.
Quake Lake in south west Montana was formed in 1959 after an earthquake dislodged an estimated 80 million tons of rock and debris that blocked the river and formed a lake. 28 people were buried under 300 feet of dirt as the slide took out part of an occupied camp ground. Now the lake has a skeletal forest poking up through the middle of it. The lake felt both awesome and daunting at the same time.
Took a weekend trip over the hill to the Eastern Sierras from the Bay Area on the motorcycle this past weekend and brought along the camera (of course…). I have a 14mm Rokinon that has a Sony mount on it to fit my A7II. The Rokinon is a super fun and super wide lens I originally picked up to shoot friends mountain biking in NZ. Its f/2.8 so I thought it would be fun to try out some night shots while out in the woods where there is little light pollution from big cities. Couple that turned out OK. All shot on a Sony A7II with a Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 manual lens. The first shot is 20 sec f/4 at ISO1600, and the other two are 20 sec f/4 at ISO3200.
Leras Fest Nov 2014. We had our end of summer party at out The Farm. Mike made a larger then life cowboy in a day, which then went up in smoke in the same day. Great day and night had by everyone that came along. Thanks to Mike for making it even more amazing and for having such an amazing place to share with others.
