We spent the last few days in Coos Bay with my parents and some good family friends. Two of those mornings were spent out on the boat starting from the Charleston Harbor.
I've been taking photos everyday for about three years now, but it's not often the day starts off like this. I was up, but knew to go look out the front window this morning thanks to a glance at SunsetWX before heading to bed last night. They give forcasts for sunrise at 8 pm the night before and sunset at 11 am the day-of.
My favorite coffee cup, a Fathers Day gift from a few years back. This one has been in quite a few photos.
Here's an older photo I've never shared before. Take a look at the camera info in the border.
The Chemex is my normal method these days when I'm making more than one cup. I still prefer a single cup pourover if I'm just aiming for the absolute best cup of coffee, but wish it was as fun and beautiful as the Chemex.
With my kids out of town I got up at 4:30 and drove out to Jonsrud point in Sandy yesterday. I've been reading about stitching together multiple images and thought I'd try my hand at it. I really like the detail in the mist over the green field just below the mountain.
This particular image is made from 12 images shot at 75mm on my OM Mount Soligor macro zoom. I stitched them in Lightroom and it couldn't have been more simple.
The resulting image after cropping is 62.5 megapixels. Before cropping it was 74! I put together a couple other versions that were all aligned pretty well with almost no crop needed, but this is actually the photos from 2 different sets so it wasn't aligned quite as well. I'm looking forward to doing some of these with even more images, but this was a fun first try.
