Reflecting Back on DLWS Oregon Coast 06/08/2007


DLWS Oregon Coast has drawn to a close, the gang has all gone our separate ways, I am beginning to recover from sleep deprivation and I can reflect back on what a great event it turned out to be. The Photo Gods smiled upon us with dramatic skies, beautiful light and killer subjects to keep us busy photographing for hours. We had an incredible group who gamely followed us and eagerly learned from us while nearly dropping with fatigue and, yet, in the end entertained us with their outstanding imagery. As Moose says “You’ll need a vacation after a DLWS event.” He is not kidding. Despite the grueling pace of 18 hour days a great time was had by all. Thanks for sharing my “backyard”.

DLWS Oregon Coast 2nd Evening 06/05/2007


What a day! Dramatic skies were our backdrop for the Coquille River Lighthouse on our evening shoot. We were greeted with beautiful light and big puffies followed by dark skies and finally the rain came. Hey, it’s Oregon. Ya gotta have some weather.

DLWS Oregon Coast 2nd Morning 06/05/2007


Despite the weather report calling for the prerequisite Oregon rain, we had a beautiful morning wandering around the Charleston Boat Basin. Details, graphics and reflections were everywhere we turned.

In the Mood 06/01/2007


The Oregon Coast has many moods…from bright and sunny to dark and stormy. I find that I prefer the charachter of a moody day and we were not disappointed. Heading out to photograph the sunset, the weather was sunny and bright, leading us to believe that we would have a nice, colorful sunset. But, in it’s usual way, the weather on the Oregon Coast changes rapidly. Heading towards Bandon, we drove right into a fog bank, loosing all our sun. Upon reaching our destination, we had swirling fog and sun. With the light dropping quickly, and the moodiness of the afternoon, I kicked into B&W mode to photograph this starfish clinging to a rock
