SUNSET DEFINED OAK OVER A SEA OF COASTAL FOG

full_moon_in_the_oaks06-1

I suppose that it is time for me to let go of the claim that I seldom create sunset imagery. I do, and I enjoy creating and viewing them.

This image is another from the series that I took Saturday evening atop the southwest slope of Snow Camp Mountain in Humboldt County. This location is in the prairie, oak, and fir environment, yet it is only about a dozen miles from the coast. The “sea” of fog in the bottom right is blanketing the redwood forest environment which is at the lower elevations just below.

About Thomas Bethune

THOMAS ALLEN BETHUNE I have been interested in photography for most of my life. I started taking photographs with a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera when I was eight years old. My early subjects were trains and engineered structures as well as landscapes and family portraits. My interests and vision have matured, but the subjects that catch my eye continue to be of the same genre as my earliest visions. A neighbor man had a darkroom, and he showed me the basics of camera operation and darkroom processing. I took courses in art and photography in high school and college. I worked as an apprentice to a commercial wedding and event photographer, and I was in charge of a recreational dark room while I was in the military. As an adult, I earned a bachelor’s degree in photography from Humboldt State University. My experience with film formats included 35mm, 2 ¼”, and 4”x 5”. I exhibited at galleries near my home in Arcata California, and in Santa Fe New Mexico. All my current work is digital. I am scanning many of my legacy negatives and slides. I sometimes process and print the scanned negatives. I often post them on my blog. I process all of my prints with archival media. An award winning fine art photographer living in a redwood forest. BA Photography Director, Redwood Art Association, Eureka CA Co-curator, F Street Foto Gallery, Eureka CA
