Farewell to drilling

Last day of drilling. Weather over Mt. Emily.

The Chetco still cuts the toe the landslide.

The weather was dramatic all day. Late afternoon clearing.

I could get used to eating the fish tacos at Cielito Lindo, once a Texaco station.

There is a bit of frustration shooting with the infrared D5000. The kit 18-55mm lens is notoriously not sharp, so I tacked on my 35mm prime lens. This lens generates a better image, but there is a circular ghost in the raw images discernible at smaller apertures. When converted to infrared, they requested a variable focal length lens to calibrate, but I would have been better off to have them calibrate with this lens. There is so much to try to understand about IR shooting and I have not spent the time. I just keep clicking away, forming new questions and thoroughly enjoying the spooky quality of IR.

There were amazing clouds all day. As I filled up my tank, this appeared:

I returned to Harris Beach to catch the first sunset in a while. There just hasn’t been enough clearing in the gray to catch one.

This one is like so many I photographed last year. It was really chilly, so I missed the drop at the bottom.

A farewell look towards the west-southwest.
