Photos from my various adventures

  • About this site

    I use this site for several purposes. It serves as a very convenient way for me to share my photos with other people: family, friends, and strangers alike. It also gives me a place to critique my own work to try to learn what works and what doesn't as well as getting feedback from visitors.

    That being said, I hope you enjoy my pictures and tolerate my occasional ramblings. If you would like larger scale versions of any of these pictures, just leave a comment or shoot me an email.

Rising From the Mists

Posted by Ben on February 13, 2012

Here are a couple of shots from a hike I took with a few friends last December at Mount Pisgah. We decided that we needed a break from studying for finals and were able to find a nice hike not to far away from Eugene.  We climbed up the trail through some pretty dense fog, but as we got closer to the summit, we broke out of it and were able to see the sun for a little while (before the fog caught back up with us). These are a few pictures from that boundary area that I thought turned out pretty cool:

Treetops

Posted by Ben on February 8, 2012

Whew, the last few nights have been pretty rough trying to catch up on all the work I didn’t do this past weekend. Here’s another pair of pictures from the trip to Odell Lake:

It’s not often I catch the moon close enough to the horizon during the day to get a shot of it with anything but sky in the picture. My moon photos usually don’t come out this clear either, so I’m happy on both counts.

This one was taken on one of the cross county ski trails around the lodge. I really like the way the clouds turned out in the top left corner. They contrast very nicely against the dark blue sky from the polarizing filter. I would have liked to have gotten the entire sky that dark, but it didn’t work out with the sun at the time. I also like how the dead tree left of center kinda matches up with the leading edge of the clouds in both shape and color.

Snow in the Hills

Posted by Ben on November 7, 2011

After spending most of Saturday working inside due to the rain, I decided to go for a drive through the mountains Sunday afternoon.  Somewhat surprisingly, I ran through a snow shower up in the higher parts of the Cascades, plus some giant trees:

Streamside Colors

Posted by Ben on October 30, 2011

These were both taken on a trip along the southernmost part of the West Cascades Scenic Byway a few weekends ago.  I think the first is a tributary of the Middle Fork of the Willamette, and the second is the South Fork of the McKenzie.  The polarizer was a big help for both of these shots

Got a long week full of math coming up, so I’m going to head to bed for the night.
