New on 500px : Darkroot Grotto by alexnoriega by alexnoriega

Diffused light filters in over a downright enchanting waterfall, situated deep in Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge.

This year is the year I’m finally getting some good forest shooting in – green has been conspicuously absent from my portfolio for too long. This spot’s been done before, but it’s still a damn special place. Thanks Teedge and Boolini for the good times en route and afterward!

Two exposures here – one ISO 100, 1s, f/16 for the base scene and water movement; one ISO 400, 1/8s, f/11 for depth of field and foliage movement.

New on 500px : Overgrown by alexnoriega by alexnoriega

Moss-bearded vine maples rise from a lush carpet of oxalis, under dappled afternoon light. Hoh Rainforest, Olympic NP, Washington, USA. This is a stitch of two horizontal exposures, since I couldn’t fit this composition in my 15mm-equivalent lens from the close perspective I chose. I’ve been on a green kick lately, in anticipation of a week-plus coming up in Olympic. Still working my way through files from only 4 days there last year, so I’m pretty stoked to see what I can do in double that time. Should give me plenty of time to come up with ways to work “Hoh” into Dr. Dre lyrics (I found me a Hoh that I like / but I can’t make a Hoh a housewife). I teach my processing techniques, and offer prints and junk. Peep my site if that tickles your fancy! http://ift.tt/YdCotQ
