When I was preparing to go out to Portland to meet Jack Graham and do the Oregon Coast workshop I was really excited to shoot his beautiful region that Jack knows so well!  I’ve shot the last before but I knew Jack would know the best spots, and he did!!!!  I packed three bodies and four lenses, the 50-140, the 18-135, the 10-24, and a 200mm Nikkor to get my 300 mm lens. After the first two days I had not taken anything out of the bag but the 18-135 which remained firmly attached to my X-T1 and a few times the X-T10.  I did use the 10-24 on a few occasions, but the rest, including the much lauded 50-140 were unused!!!!  Honestly, I could have shot the entire trip with the 18-135!  Only when I needed an extreme wide lens,  (inside the lighthouse, and some ferns on the forest floor) did I pull out the 10-24.

 

It was exceptionally liberating to have  a single camera and lens and produce such a great variety of work!  Because I have my X-T1 and=X-T10 set up to produce Velvia, Provia and monochrome with a red filter I also got a variety of images, some of which let me allow my inner “Jay Maisel” to surface! Even the close-up images were made with the 18-135 without any accessories!!!!  Thanks Mike!!  What fun, hope you enjoy these;

 

 

More later!

Our first day out on the coast has been sunny, but we got a break this morning at Ecola State Park, with some nice mist in the air hanging to the coast.  It held in the trees and gave a soft appearance to the early light spilling on the waves and sea stacks along the coast!  We have a great group of folks an they have been working hard under less tun perfect conditions!  The outlook for sunset is looking up as clouds are moving in around Cannon Beach.  WE will see, but hope springs eternal

An off shore lighthouse peaks through the towering pines along the cliffs!

 

 

Hopefully, tomorrow I can show you a spectacular sunset!
