Portland & Seattle Trip

Portland & Seattle Trip. The University of Utah has a wonderful thing called Fall Break. Think of Spring Break but for the Fall Semester. This year Charlie and I decided to vacation in Oregon and Washington. We spent the first few days in Portland enjoying the sites and the great food and then made our way west to the coast. Spent a day or two heading north and eventually arrived in Seattle where we crashed for a few nights and saw more sites and enjoyed amazing food. Here are a few pictures from our trip:

Jackson Hole 2010: Wildlife

Thursday, 7 October 2010, 5:00am

Wildlife at Teton National Park. During our adventures through Teton National Park, we came across a few animals that I was able to photograph. I was rather unprepared to photograph wildlife as I was only carrying my wide-angle lens and nothing telephoto. Luckily, I captured a few shots of a coyote, an elk and a moose. Next time I will be more prepared. Enjoy.

Jackson Hole 2010

Jackson Hole 2010. We decided to take a weekend trip up to Jackson, Wyoming and enjoy Teton National Park. I brought along my camera and was able to capture some great photographs and the beautiful fall colors. We left Friday afternoon and got into the Teton Village after 9pm and crashed for the night. Saturday was spent running around Teton National Park and capturing pictures. We watched the sunset at Oxbow Bend and went back into town. Sunday we enjoyed the sunrise and made our way back to Salt Lake.

I managed to take over 1000+ pictures and have many to share. I used my Nikon D300 and my AF-S Zoom-Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8G ED lens for most of the photographs. My Canon SD780 IS captured a few. The tripod was used for a majority of the shots. The photographs were prepared using Aperture 3. I used Photomatix Pro for the HDR picture. Enjoy the pictures. There are many more coming…

Decided to have a little fun with HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography.

Charlie looking forward to a day full of adventure.
