Clouds blowing by Pilot Rock

Moving clouds

The wind was whipping through Ashland when I took this photo about 10 days ago from a friend’s house. Pilot Rock was playing peek-a-boo as the clouds quickly moved by. I had to wait a few seconds for Pilot Rock to be this visible.

My first photo with the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge which was shot in RAW. This is up Hitt Road in Ashland looking toward the Siskiyous from Acid Castles.

Pre-eclipse Ashland panorama

Ashland, Oregon panorama

Before last Sunday’s eclipse, I scouted out various locations for photo taking. I like this particular place for landscapes, but the view wouldn’t have looked much different during a solar eclipse so I took this photo* and moved on to ScienceWorks for the eclipse party instead.

You will see a lot more detail if you have a widescreen computer monitor, maximize your window, and then click on the image. To capture as much detail as possible (and not miss out on the amazing clouds) *I shot about 8 or 10 images vertically at 24mm (36mm equivalent as I have a crop sensor) and then photomerged them together for this very horizontal panorama.

From left to right, you can see Pilot Rock, Mt. Ashland, and Wagner Butte. This panorama covers nearly 180 degrees and pretty much all of the Siskiyou Mountain Range viewable from Ashland.

Caterpillar Trail

Back on father’s day I was trying out my 24mm prime lens while on a bike ride up in the Siskiyous. As luck would have it, just as I got my D7000 out of the bag to take a photo of the Caterpillar Trail sign, a few riders came down so I got to test out the responsiveness in low light.

For the first rider I had the dial in the “Auto-No Flash” mode and didn’t have time to change it. Needless to say he blurred a bit as they were coming down the trail fast. That first shot was taken with a shutter speed of 1/160, ISO200, f6.3. I had a few seconds to adjust for the second guy pictured above. I quickly spun the dial over to Scene and then moved the scene to “sports.” I then fired off the above three shots in rapid succession. The camera fired at 1/1000 with an ISO of 500 and f4. I was pleased with the result of three well focused, sharp images (in poor light even), with a frozen rider in each.

A road to the top of Mt. Ashland

There is a saying that “many roads lead to the top of Mt. Fuji,” but the same is also true for Mt. Ashland. Here is one such road. This one begins by going down for a few dozen yards, but it is all uphill from there.
