Foggy Morning in the Backyard

It got really cold here overnight, but the fog rolled in and allowed for this morning light in the backyard.

An old boat area from the docks in Vancouver…


Details of the Night

These shots are normally really hard to grab at night, but this HDR turned out nice. Chaotic, but detailed and nice.

The HDR Tesla Coil in the Storm

The clouds and the storm were just about right for transmitting electricity through the ground, so I had to grab this HDR of the Tesla Coil in Vancouver.

Piercing the Sky

This is a nice HDR shot I grabbed of a Buddhist temple in Thailand. I would have called this “Heaven Opening”, but I don’t think that makes sense over a Buddhist temple. If you squint, closely at the sun rays, you can see your other lives.

The Hidden Pond

Here is a nice little foggy pond at sunset in Vancouver in the Autumn. I can’t think of a better time of year or conditions to shoot around there.

The Secret Russian Cosmonaut Bunker

Daily Photo: Stuck in Customs in Space

This shot is decidedly not Russian, not secret, not a bunker, but maybe it has held a few cosmonauts. Anyway, this place was just way too cool not to photograph.

Stuck in Customs in Space I love this shot!  It came out wicked. I used to say wicked a lot in grade school and I still like saying it.  This may or may not make me lame, and I can't be objective about such things.This is the airport in Bangkok, Thailand.  I am not sure who the architect is, but it came out quite inspired.  Taking photos of beautiful architecture is somewhat of a sport of mine.  I want to try to honor the lines and the textures via a good composition and a good HDR treatment.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Buddha said he wanted to have a word with me

I was burning hot, sweating like a nearby migrant worker, but I just had to stop to take this HDR, since Buddha asked me to and all… you don’t want to ignore that guy.
