Moose Peak from Obstruction Point, Olympic National Park

Lake Elizabeth, Fremont, CA

Photographed through a haze of sand obstruction, an American Oystercatcher shakes to clear off excess water and to align its feathers. The Oystercatcher had walked over a hill of sand and stood stubbornly just beyond it. Because my aperture was wide open and the shorebird was far enough away from the edge there is no focused line of sand. I really like the milky foreground blurring that this provided. I look forward to experimenting more with this technique. June 15, 2017

A rock makes a strong obstacle for a wave receeding back to sea at Porthleven.

Traffic on the Benicia Bridge was temporarily stopped last night due to a large obstruction in the roadway....

Starved Rock State Park. Sometimes it is necessary to make a small diversion in the path to remain on track towards our goal.

often i wish to stand witness to 'unobstructed sky'. no skyscrapers, no apartment, no business offices, no houses, no electricity pylons, nothing. i want to look up and see miles of sky with not even a bird to disrupt the endlessness of it all.


other times i just want to look at buldings. it depends on how philosophical i'm feeling.

looking across Rosario Strait from Obstruction Pass

I saw a photo the other day here on flickr that was shot through a fence and it looked amazing.


That is a little of what I did here. I did not have a choice if I wanted to get a big chunk of the graffiti in one shot, and it turned out good to me. I happen to be standing on LRT lines which is a bit dangerous, but hey, it was worth it. :)


Thanks for the view, and as always, any feedback is appreciated.

If I can't get to the other side, I'll just shoot from afar.

A clematis running riot in our garden, has had a severe trim after shooting this!

I went down to La Jolla hoping for a great sunset, but instead I got a bunch of clouds. It still makes for an interesting photo, I'll take clouds like this over a hazy cloudless sky any day.

obstructions in nature: the idols we raise series 1/3

I am getting tired of winter, ice and snow. But I had to admit that the colors and the light up here is really something special. Picture taken while I did my turn as a polar bear guard. It's not easy to have full control over polar bears when there are so many obstructions in the terrain.

Not much green grass and flowers here.

No escaping this tomb in Highgate cemetery, London

This one from the February ice storm. Natural vignette is due to obstructions. It's difficult to describe the beauty and impossible to capture - at least for my equipment and skill level. But I wanted to share anyway and for the words I will borrow from the incredible imagination of C.S. Lewis: .


“Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you could never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are ‘patches of Godlight’ in the woods of our experience.”

― C.S. Lewis

My first post in a week, and probably also the only one for the upcoming week. Last week I was ill so I didn't post and next week I'll have an important exam.... so enjoy the silence ;)

How do you overcome?

Question remains unanswered.

Livestock in the way on the Burma Mines Railway as 1927 built Bagnall No.42 heads a freight climbing the valley towards Lopah.

But a pleasing obstruction...

trying out the welding glass for long exposure

This is my response to Steve77's challenge in the The Five Obstructions Photo group


Steve threw me the obstruction of a long shutter speed. This is 0.8 seconds which is way off my usual area of 1/200 or soo. I liked the way the saloon could be seen through the train as it went past


EDIT: It was taken in a miniature model railway museum
