Poetry – A Maple Tree in Winter

A Maple Tree in Winter, by Craig Steele

Don’t grieve. Anything you lose
comes round in another form.
– Rumi

Mourning, without a single leaf
to save its modesty, until

a single crow wings in,
settles, and while

celebrating its arrival,
draws in its murder mates, until

every limb shudders, tickled
by the heft of ebon leaves.

Photography – Ben Coffman

At the Edge of Everywhere
This photo was taken at Oregon’s Trillium Lake, with Mt Hood in the background. The lights on the mountain are from Timberline Lodge and a bunch of Sno-Cats that were grooming the ski slopes there. I was planning on shooting from this location anyway on the night in question, after three previous trips in the preceding month had resulted in no usable images.We don’t often get aurora borealis in Oregon, but it really went off this night. There were half a dozen other photographers at the lake that night, and the air was calm enough that I could hear the “ooohs” and “aaaahs” from clear on the other side of the lake. It was a fantastic night.Canon 6D with Rokinon 14mm, aperture unrecorded, 30 sec, ISO 5000

Crater Lake Panorama with Lyrids
This photo was taken during my second winter camping trip to Crater Lake. My friends and fellow photographers Jack Crocker and Robyn Clipfell used snowshoes for the little over three miles to get to our camp spots. It was a little grueling.The best Milky Way photos are taken with no moon in the sky, and the timing on this particular night meant that I had roughly an hour and a half between the moon setting and the first vestiges of the sun rising in the east, which happened to be the direction I was shooting. In night photography terms, at least for me, an hour and a half is nothing, especially when I was planning on shooting a giant panorama like this one, which is actually composed of about fifteen different photos stitched together.The temperatures that night were in the mid-20s, but Crater Lake can be really windy, and the area where we were camped seemed to funnel wind from the north out over the lake. To make a long story short, I was freezing while taking this photo. To keep my already overstuffed pack less than sixty pounds I had only brought along glove liners. This had seemed prudent while I was packing, since I can’t shoot photos with my gloves on anyway, but my hands were really cold by the time I was done.Canon 6D with Canon 24mm f/1.4L, 15-image stitch

Our Nightly Fortune
The title of this photo refers rather abstractly to the idea of stars (and, if you really stretch the metaphor, even flowers) being a kind of currency and that, like money or wealth, the appreciation of their beauty can be saved and handed down to future generations or squandered altogether.This photo was taken at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm (in Woodburn, Oregon) at the tail end of their annual tulip festival, which is held for several weeks in the spring. They have about three acres of tulips there, and the place just crawls with photographers, especially during particularly cool sunsets. It’s a beautiful scene, to be sure, but it can be downright frustrating to compose the shot you want without someone or their tripod in it.I had vowed that I would wait until late in the festival to visit, after the other photographers had gotten their fill. To further make sure that nobody would be around, I planned to visit at night. Unfortunately, a particularly warm spring tortured the tulip crop, and only about three rows of a particularly hearty variety were still around and in good shape. The other two and a half acres of tulips were a wilted, dried-up mess, lying in heaps in the field. After the initial disappointment of pulling up and seeing how empty the fields were, I felt very fortunate to have gotten this image.Canon 6D with Rokinon 14mm, f/2.8, 30 sec, ISO 3200

Tempest o’er the Field
 Temptest o'er the field
I was out chasing aurora borealis in eastern Oregon and Washington the night I took this photo. The forecast had called for a better-than-normal chance of aurora and the skies had been incredibly clear, but the northern lights decided not to show. I was disappointed, but I decided to stop by some old high-desert homesteads that I’d photographed once before to try to salvage the evening.For some reason, the valley with this house was completely cloud-covered, despite clear skies for dozens, maybe hundreds, of miles around the valley. I remember being pretty discouraged when I saw all of the clouds, but I ended up shooting photos anyway.This area of Washington is really windy, and there are these huge, wind farms with one hundred windmills all through the area. Each windmill has its own bright red light that blinks intermittently. This photo is a result of those wind farms lighting the clouds overhead. I managed to take this photo right as the clouds parted, giving me a view of the stars above as well. This moment lasted for maybe a minute or two before the clouds re-covered the area. These atmospheric conditions, while not what I considered at the time to be “perfect,” helped to create a really unique image–I’m not sure I could ever take the same photo again. In short, I thought what I was taking was a throwaway image, but it has turned out to be one of my favorites from this year. I learned a valuable lesson with this one: Don’t over think it. Take the photo anyway. You might surprise yourself.Canon 6D with Rokinon 14mm, aperture unrecorded, 25 sec, ISO 3200

Flowers, by Aaron Bowen.

“I am mostly attracted to the abstract colors and light, don’t really know how to explain it, but to me the flowers are certainly more than just flowers.”
~A. Bowen

About the photographs – These photos were taken at several different times in 2012. Aaron visits this cemetery when he is in Wichita, Kansas. He try’s to capture something different each time, look at the angel in a different way.

Photography – Gourds


Taken Nov. 2007 *, Apple Orchard, Somewhere in Kansas

About the photographs – Initially the gourds are a result of touring around Kansas, trying to visit all the weird/interesting/quirky Kansas sites. Driving past an apple orchard, in addition to lots of apples, they had these bottle gourds for sale. I thought they would be nice for photographs.

The end result and feeling behind these photographs are the sense of “loss of power, and death, and fading away.”

* Photos were taken with a Nikon D80 and a 17-55 mm f2.8 Nikkor lens.

The detail of the limbs on the trees from the underside in full summer foliage creates an interesting texture and a feel of mystery through an unexpected vantage point.

A cropped version of the previous photo. This an example of how editing can change the expression of a photo.

Aaron is a collector of Daguerreotype* portraits. The previous photo has been edited to resemble this type of photography process. The image takes on a haunting quality where one could almost imagine the sound of a horse drawn carriage filtering through the trees.* Louis Daguerre, inventor of the first practical process of photography. Additional information about the invention of this process can be found on this website.
