Smoldering Embers by cwexplorationphotography

I haven’t posted an image of St. Helen’s in a long time and I’ve been holding onto this one for a bit. The processing on this one was tough because the wind was blowing so hard. I had to hand blend 7 images for depth of focus and sharpness throughout the frame. This was taken at twilight as the supermoon rose up over the left shoulder of St. Helen’s the summer of 2014. I think that this is one of my new personal favorites. Hope you will enjoy it as well!

Resilience by KristinaWilson

“My scars remind me that I did indeed survive my deepest wounds. That in itself is an accomplishment. And they bring to mind something else, too. They remind me that the damage life has inflicted on me has, in many places, left me stronger and more resilient. What hurt me in the past has actually made me better equipped to face the present.” – Steve Goodier

Road Well Traveled by Christina_Angquico

Today would have been my dads 58th birthday and we all miss him dearly. He was taken much too young but if you asked him he would have told you he was lucky and lived a good life. So here is a photo to celebrate him and life. Went out last night and got some decent light but as always it was in the wrong spot. Met a wonderfully brave and talented photographer by the name of Svetlana who put a smile on my face. Saint Helens flower report is that the paintbrush is out but not as thick as prior years.

Revival by glenmurray

** Please view on Black **

Perfect conditions this past weekend up at Mount Saint Helens to catch a glimpse of the Milky Way behind the mountain with beautiful wildflowers in the foreground. I first saw this composition from Ryan Dyar when I met him last year and always wanted to go see for myself. This is a focus stack of 5 images first 4 being the foreground and landscape and the last being exposed for the sky. All are two minute exposures with the sky image being 30 seconds. Hope you enjoy.
