Photography By Ed O'Malley »

  • Ed O’Malley is a nature photographer who lives on the coast of New Jersey, specifically along the shore of Barnegat Bay. He can often be found sailing, fishing, diving, or kayaking – these and other outdoor activities often provide the opportunity and inspiration for his photographs.

    In addition to his on-the-water pursuits, Ed has always enjoyed stormy weather, and in particular, the winter season – the more snow, the better. In the fall of 2007, this led to Ed’s affiliation with Mount Washington Observatory as a summit volunteer. Since then, this has provided many unique photographic opportunities on the summit of Mount Washington and in the surrounding area. Coastal storms also provide Ed with many opportunities for one-of-a-kind photographs.

Oregon and Northern California…

Today was mostly spent driving, about 13 hours in total, to get setup for tomorrow (Sunday).  I drove south along I-5, through much of Oregon, and through Northern California, past Mt. Shasta, and the surrounding area.  Tomorrow’s plans will include Point Reyes National Seashore, Muir Woods (redwoods), and perhaps Big Sur.  Here are a few pictures from today (from my iPhone, so a bit grainy), I’ll probably add more tomorrow…

Almost in Canada…

Today, I explored the Neah Bay area of Washington State.  This is the northwest corner of the state, right at the mouth of the Straits of Juan de Fuca on the US side.  I was in an area that had no US cell coverage, but I happened to pick up a Canada cell signal from the other side of the straits.  As is often the case in the Northwest, today was windy and rainy, but mild.  Due to the near constant wet conditions, most of the trees that I saw today wore a growth of moss of various types.

The whole day was fun, but one of the highlights was the ferry trip from Edmonds to Kingston, WA, across Puget Sound.

It looks like you reserved the whole ferry just for yourself so the Subie would not get scratched.
