30 years ago today...
Posted By: chacoansun, 05-18-2010, 06:25 AM

30 years ago today Mount St. Helens erupted. While I wasn't living there at the time I did work there from 1993-1995. I had the amazing opportunity to see the mountain through all her emotions and seasons. I took hundreds if not thousands of photos trying to capture all her moods. Mostly they were done on Fuji Velvia. Here are a few from that time. Enjoy.

Wow. Some marvelous views. It's captivating on the screen but must be even more so in person. Thanks for sharing.

That one in the snow is brilliant. Shame about the blown-out sky. Otherwise it would be a straight cover for the National Geographic.

I was living there at the time. I remember that day well. However, I lived in the Seattle area and the ash cloud totally missed us due to wind directions and such, until it came back around the earth.

Nice shots. I really like the 2nd one.

I was a kid at the time outside stacking firewood. We are quite a ways away, but I can still remember hearing the "boom" and the days of white ash that followed.

Great series.....I like the contrast in #3....

thanks everyone. It would also great to see the life coming back every spring. Just more and more every year. I would love to get back there again, but alas Michigan is along way away.
