PENDING! The Sellers of this home tried to go the FSBO route, but were having no luck. That’s when they called Totem Properties & asked us to sell their home. We procured a fabulous offer in just 10 days. Average market time in Seaside is currently 170 days. || FOR SALE by Karen Radditz & Julia Radditz || TOTEM Properties
Hey folks! I meant to post this yesterday and do a “Milky Way Monday” and say how excited I am for Milky Way season (still am excited), but got a little busy and didn’t get around to posting it.
This is actually a composite I made. We went to the coast a few Saturdays ago to shoot the sunset and stick around to hopefully get some stars to do some star trails. The sunset half of the trip was pretty amazing, the star trail half… that ended up being a bit of a bust as some heavy clouds from the northwest rolled over our sky’s. This was a pretty long day, I woke up to meet some friends at Pittock Mansion for some an early morning sunrise which didn’t happen, then later that day we drove out to the coast and kept shooting until about 10:30, 11pm. That light that was shinning on the rocks came from the boats out on the ocean (which are quite a few miles away from us), one boat just had it light shinning in our directions and would light up the rocks in the foreground just right. I liked how the lights on the rocks were but I wasn’t really digging the sky that I captured, So I chose one of my Milky Way shots that I took from the coast last year and blended it in. It was a little tricky blending an old shot since it was taken with my old D7200 crop sensor body. Since it was a crop sensor my Milky Way seems a little more compressed in this shot then if I would of used my D810 a full framed camera, which would of had the Milky Way looking a little smaller in my sky. None the less even if this isn’t the greatest photo I’ve taken, I still had a lot of fun messing with these two images and making it one single image. I’m one of those rare breads of photographers who like editing and fine tuning my art, to make it the way I like. Have a great week everyone!

The ocean had so much to show us this weekend in such a short period of time. Sun and frigid wind one moment, darkness and hail the next. Each change illuminating the power and grace of nature. .
Looking out over the seemingly endless sea stacks that line the Oregon Coast. It's hard to fathom that after years of erosion from the waves, these pieces of land become isolated from the coast line, a small piece of the forest resting untouched.
