Shhh, they’re sleeping…Amsterdam, NLTaking this photo of Zuiderkerk from the love lock bridge was not an easy task.  Getting the time I needed for the exposure while not having anyone else on the bridge is nearly impossible.  Still after what seemed like countless hours (20-25 minutes) I succeeded.  I don’t think I will be attempting this again any time soon! :) #talesfromtheroad   #nightphotography   #longexposure   #longexposurephotography   #amsterdam   #holland   #netherlands   #dutch   #Zuiderkerk   #travel   #exploreamsterdamhttp://click-to-read-mo.re/p/98Ai/522eb3ab

The Bay In The BlueTreasure Island, CaI must admit there is something magical about photographing San Francisco in the blue hour.  Sitting there watching the lights come up and the sky falls over the water.  The magic was so powerful that I didn’t even freak out when my car was hit while I was there.  Ok, maybe a little ;) #talesfromtheroad   #travel   #cityscape   #bluehour   #sanfrancisco   #travelcalifornia   #discovercalifornia   #californiaexplored   #explorecalifornia   #baybridge   #cityscape   #nightphotography   #longexposure   #landscapephotography  +Landscape Photographyhttp://click-to-read-mo.re/p/93zJ/522eb3ab

The Great Salt LakeI recently had the um, pleasure, of visiting the Great Salt Lake in Utah.  The lake itself is gorgeous to look at and the water temperature is perfect for swimming.  You just have to get over the smell surrounding it.  That and the millions of tiny insects that make a wave effect from the ground as you walk.  It’s actually quite surreal! #talesfromtheroad   #greatsaltlake   #saltlake   #saltlakecity   #travel   #travelutah   #exploreutah   #discoverutah   #utah   #nature   #landscapephotography  +Landscape Photography +Margaret Tompkins +Jim Warthmanhttp://click-to-read-mo.re/p/8Two/522eb3ab

Join +Drink and Click™ Portland, Oregon this month at the International Rose Test Garden!  Let’s meet up at The Matador  at 4:00 (1967 West Burnside Street) for some dive bar shenanigans and then head up to the Rose Garden for some fantastic color opportunities as well as a great view of the skyline!
Now for this month’s challenge!  Don’t forget to hashtag your photos with #drinkandclickpdx  

The August Challenge is “Contrasting Colors”. The image attached to this post is a cloudscape I captured from an upstairs window during a spectacularly colorful, early November sunrise. A photo with good color contrast contains complementary colors (opposite colors, or two colors on the opposite sides of the color wheel) and high saturation.

Thanks to our great prize sponsors for August: Gary Fong Flash Diffusers, Artistic Photo Canvas, & Rocky Nook!

How Can I Pass This Up?Headed back to the house on the quad a couple of nights ago I looked up and saw the Milky Way streaking more vividly than I have in quite some time.  I had my camera strapped to me so I decided to grab a quick shot.  No tripos so this was resting on the front of the quad.  ;)  Im hunting a location for tonight if I get this lucky again!   #talesfromtheroad   #norcal   #milkyway   #nightphotography   #longexposure   #travel   #stars   #astral   #astro   #landscapephotography   #naturephotographyhttp://click-to-read-mo.re/p/8wPX/522eb3ab

Ladies and Gentlemen a year has passed already for this wonderful gathering!  This month +Drink and Click™  will be drinking and clicking at the Oregon Brew Festival ( http://www.oregonbrewfest.com )!  So come one and come all and make sure you have a safe way home!!!  +Drink and Click™ Portland, Oregon, we know how to do it right!

Psss, it might or might not be +Brian Bonham's birthday so lets make sure its a day he wont remember :)
Now for the monthly challenge!
——————————————-

The July Challenge is “Post Processing”. The image on this post was taken near sunset in Port Aransas, TX, but the water wasn’t yellow, and the sky wasn’t green. I enjoyed making it appear that way, however. :-)

I used Lightroom to make all the adjustments on this photo; the jumping off point was a Trey Ratcliff preset called “Turkish Blast.” I made several adjustments after that, including additional graduated filters and spot brushing to achieve the final effect. Find Trey’s V2 LR Presets here: http://goo.gl/bN5Zfd

Submit your Post Processed photos from a Drink and Click™ Photowalk and win great prizes! See Details Here: http://goo.gl/tsEvGn
Thanks to our great prize sponsors for July: +SmugMug  +Cotton Carrier Camera Systems,  & +Trey Ratcliff's +Stuck In Customs
