Geese take flight at Marymoor Park | Photo of the Day

January 18th, 2012 at 1:29 pm by Chad Coleman

Canadian geese take flight in the falling snow at Marymoor Park in Redmond on Tuesday, January 17, 2012. A field full of geese took flight as I was heading into an photo assignment for a press performance of Cavalia, and only had a moment to blindly up my shutter speed and squeeze off a few frames, luckily capturing this monochromatic image.

Christmas tree tie down | Photo of the Day

December 2nd, 2011 at 6:14 pm by Chad Coleman

Bill Bastine, of Sammamish, secures a tree with twine to his vehicle at McMurtrey’s Red-Wood Christmas Tree Farm in Redmond on Wednesday, November 30, 2011. This is one of my favorite images from a photo assignment at a local tree tree farm… you can see more images in a slideshow on the Redmond Reporter site.

Mt. Rainier and the clouds cover | Photo of the Day

November 29th, 2011 at 1:42 pm by Chad Coleman

Mt. Rainier is shrouded by clouds moving into the region in this view from the South end of Mercer Island on Tuesday, November 29, 2011. Ten minutes earlier and it would have been a really nice frame, but from the I-90 bridge to my vantage point takes a few. Still, I personally enjoy ANY day where I can see “the mountain.”

 

Pumpkin patch at Serres Farm in Redmond

October 19th, 2011 at 4:07 pm by Chad Coleman

Above, Sally Roos, age 4, takes her picks to a wheelbarrow at the pumpkin patch at Serres Farm in Redmond on Tuesday, October 4, 2011. Sure as the seasons change, I got the call to photograph a stand alone feature photo of a pumpkin farm. I have to admit it was a nice, quiet afternoon in the country as nearly every other area photojournalist was crowding along a walkway at Sea-Tac airport for the return home of Amanda Knox. More photos after the jump…

Sunset over the Eastside | Photo

October 14th, 2011 at 11:14 pm by Chad Coleman

I’ve said it before and it bears repeating… sometimes you just have to turn around. That’s the case of this blazing sunset image I snapped prior to kickoff of the Issaquah vs. Eastlake football game in Sammamish tonight.

 

Fun in the rain | Photo

October 12th, 2011 at 11:24 am by Chad Coleman

I’ve thought many times about a “Photo of the Day” series here on the blog, but since I run this photo blog solo for the news group it just isn’t feasible. I’m going to make an effort to share more single frames without painting myself into a schedule. We’ll see how it goes… Above, is a photo from an upcoming piece in The Scene. Thankfully no camera bodies were hurt in the making of this image. Happy splashing!

Mount Rainier, a cloud and a plane | Photo of the Day

August 24th, 2011 at 4:22 pm by Chad Coleman

Earlier today I was leaving an assignment in Redmond and saw a great cloud cap on Mt. Rainier, so I pointed the car towards Mercer Island and my next assignment. Due to some minor breaking news, I got to the South end of the Island after the cloud had shifted and started to break up, but still got this frame for my personal “photo of the day.”

 

 

 

Bubbles

August 22nd, 2011 at 11:54 am by Chad Coleman

Above, Ose Esangbedo, 11, of Sammamish, creates bubbles during Day of Play outside City Hall in Redmond on Friday, August 19, 2011. Just wanted to share a fun photo from an recent photo assignment. A pleasant surprise during my edit, it brings a smile to my face when I see it. I really like the way the bubble mimics the shape of his smile.
