We spent 10 days in Oregon and California for our summer vacation. We headed south from Portland and concentrated on volcanoes and then drove up highway 101 and visited and saw 7 lighthouses. Here is the start of the trip: Day 1, flying into Portland. All these images were taken from the window as we flew from Oakland to Portland
As we flew north, the Moon rose. This image was taken with my 18-250mm lens at 73mm focal length and an exposure of 1/800 seconds at f/11, ISO 400.
Flying over clouds presents a number of opportunities. In this case, a rainstorm in the sun created a small segment of a rainbow. This image was taken at 73mm focal length and an exposure of 1/800 seconds at f/11, ISO 400.
Flying over Oregon west of the cascades allowed us to see lots of mountains off to the east. These mountains are the Three Sisters volcanoes which we drove past and watched for the next couple days. This image was taken at 61mm focal length with an exposure of 1/1600 seconds at f/6.3, ISO 400. I straightened this image and did some other adjustments in the GIMP.
As we approached Portland, Mount Hood was visible. What mountain in the Cascades will become active next or will another mountain grow in the near future? This image was taken with my 18-250mm lens on my 70D at 61mm focal length and an exposure of 1/1250 seconds at f/8, ISO 400. I did a little image adjustment in the GIMP as well.
