Mt. Rainier Panoramic

Hi Friends,

The image below is an 8 photo panoramic I shot of Mt. Rainier taken yesterday. WAIT! You can’t see Rainier? Well neither could we (it should be in the upper right corner of this photo). But if you look closely you may see Mt. Adams off in the distance.

We got a real late start in the day and were hoping to get some sunset shots from Crystal Mountain, but it didn’t look like the clouds were going to break so we made the trek over to Sunrise in the hopes that getting closer might yield a shot or two. Well, it wasn’t to be. Perhaps next time (I will post a few others later on).

Blessings until next time,

Chris.

Around Washington, Part 1

Good day Friends! And happy Leap Year!

Well, I’ve been working on several projects lately, including an album (quickly turning into 2 albums) of Iceland. One of which is trying to accumulate some of my favorite various pictures from around Washington State. One of the challenges I’ve had is that I have pictures spread across 3 different computers using 3 different versions of Lightroom (which reminds me-another great big thank you to Adobe for making Lightroom and Photoshop subscription-based, I say very sarcastically). And trying to compile them to one spot without reworking a slew of pictures has become very problematic. But I digress. Another is that I haven’t really taken much landscape photographs in Washington State in the last few year (that should change this year). Most have been in Iceland, Nevada, Oregon, or somewhere in between.

Nevertheless, I post here for your enjoyment a few photographs from around Washington that I have taken in the last 2 years.

And now for the shameless plug, all photographs are available for purchase. Please email me or visit what I have on Fine Art America – Chris McKenna.

Stay tuned for Part 2 coming up with a few weeks.

Blessings,

Chris.

Mt. Rainier, Part Deux

Last week, we decided to take another trip up to Mt. Rainier to hopefully get a few dramatic sunset pictures. Before we left, we looked at the sky and saw no clouds but we decided to go anyway as the mountain always gives great photo opportunities.

Enjoy, and blessings.

Chris.

Mt. Rainier August, 2014 Photo Trek

Greeting my friends.

I hope that you are all enjoying your summer and the beautiful weather that we’ve been having. Honestly, while enjoying the sunshine a lot I am now ready for some cooler temperatures.

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to join Jennifer King (of Jennifer King Photography Workshops) on a workshop/trek on Mt. Rainier. The goal was to get some good shots of the wildflowers and some sunsets/sunrises on the mountain and while the weather certainly did not cooperate with us, I did manage to get a few good shots for my portfolio.  The wildflowers were incredible, the running water (i.e. waterfalls) were breathtaking, and the wildlife was heartwarming. And even though I cannot post all my pictures, I hope that you enjoy the few that I did.

Now about the workshop. Even professional photographers need some instruction and guidance from time-to-time. I have been wanting to join a professional workshop for some time and Jennifer is one of the best photographers I have run across in a long time. I really enjoyed her tutaledge and guidance and value her friendship. I look forward to joining her on another trek next year. If you are looking for some good professional training, I highly recommend Jennifer King Photo Workshops.

Anyway, I hope that you enjoy my photographs and if you are interested in a purchase, please see my gallery on Fine Art America or email me and let me know what you are interested in.

Blessings,

Chris.

Good morning, Friends,

Just a quick shot this morning of my favorite mountain, Mt. Rainier.

I took this shot a few years back during one of my excursions to the park. It is an HDR shot (more on that in another post). And in case any of you were wondering, yes, I do have prints available for sale.

Blessings and Happy Friday,

Chris.
