Making Not Taking Photographs

Backstage views on making photographs professionally

San Juan Islands

Posted by Mike on May 11, 2009

I have, for some time, wanted to go back to Cattle point to get a sunrise photo.My last attempt many years ago was a great image except it was fuzzy… I could never use it for anything. Landscape needs to be razor sharp.

Mother’s day was predicted to be great weather. Sunrise starts are 5:47AM… and as a bonus there was full moon.

But the show started at 5:05AM as the sky lit up and the fog moved around.

The first four shots are during the trip to Friday Harbor at about 8:45 PM. Mount Baker is the first shot.

The great blue sky  is the full moon setting over the Olympic Mountains about 80 miles from where I was standing about 5:25AM.

Go here for one of my visitors during the sunrise photo trip… He got a blue-berry bagel for being nice and not biting me.
