An excrutiatingly early flight from Seattle to Vancouver offered at least this payoff. A beautiful display of light following departure. I chose a window seat precisely for this opportunity.

Found myself once again in Beautiful Bellevue, Washington this week. Love that place. Had a bit of a chance to go out and shoot. Despite all the color that city has to offer these ones ended up all in black and white.
The sky merging into one of the many steel-and-glass facades downtown caught my eye. Took a few shots and this one offered the best continuity of the clouds into their reflection.

This was captured at the Perimeter Highway, with the Red River cresting and flood waters moving extremely fast towards the north. It didn't turn out as I was hoping as there were few clouds in the sky, but I like the color nevertheless. A 10-stop ND filter slowed the exposure down to 51 seconds, resulting in silky smooth waters and some movement in the clouds.
I tried another approach last month, at that point opting for a black and white rendition. It offers a very different feel, but you can still get a feel for the water's momentum.
