May 18, 1980

One of the earliest memories of my childhood was the eruption of Mount St. Helens.

It occurred on Sunday, May 18th 1980, 20 seconds after 8:32 a.m. PDT as a result of an earthquake measuring a magnitude of 5.1 one mile directly below the mountain causing a massive landslide of the entire north face of the volcano.

A few years ago I was fortunate enough to visit Mount St. Helens with my father. The destruction even thirty-two years later was obviously apparent, but the diversity and amount of flora and fauna existing there now would rival some of the world’s best coral reefs. It was truly an amazing experience that I will never forget. Thanks Dad!

Remember today for 57 people that died in the biggest volcanic event in this country’s history.

Fall in Ohio’s Cuyahoga Valley

I am getting ready to leave for Ohio’s Cuyahoga Valley in a few weeks to participate in a photography workshop with my father, Jack Graham and Bill Fortney who worked for Nikon.

I should be arriving in time for the peak of the fall leaf color season and I also get the rare opportunity to spend a day photographing in and on a working Amish Farm. I have my lenses cleaned, memory cards cleared and my learning cap ready to spend almost a week with some true masters of this craft!

I hope to come home with a couple decent images of my own, but I am confident that the knowledge I will acquire will pay off for the duration of my photographic career. Getting to spend a week with my father is also pretty cool.

Here is a link to his website and this workshop if anyone is interested in more details.
