A beautiful dusk view of Mount Adams taken from Tahklahk Lake in Washington state. My trusty 6x neutral density filter allowed me to extend the exposure out to a full 30 seconds for some lovely, rich colours and a beautiful reflection.

A combination of a perfect gradient sky and some lovely light trails from traffic on the extremely photogenic) bridge through the 30-second exposure make this one of my favourite photos ever.

The shot was made possible by the use of a 6x neutral density filter, which allowed me to extend the exposure time, even in pretty decent evening light. The 30 second time is what allows the light trails to build up so nicely, although there were a lot of discarded shots where the trails weren’t anywhere near as nice – orange turn indicator lights blink on and off, creating a dotted line, rather than the smooth, flowing lights in this shot.

Here’s a great shot I took out of an airplane window on a shuttle flight from Seattle to Portland last year. That’s Mount St. Helens in the foreground, with Mount Adams lined up perfectly on the distant horizon. A dusting of snow and some beautiful pinkish evening light round off one of my favourite photos.

Taken with a humble iPhone, this is definitely a picture I like to use to show that you don’t always need the most expensive camera and fancy lenses to capture really memorable images!
