out your pictures; they really have a creative
flair to them. Please, tell us your secret!!!

Are you a climber as well, or do you just like
taking spectacular pictures??????

I'm a climber, anything from Yosemite to rugged alpine stuff. My favorite kind of climbing is wild 8-day adventures into the alpine where few have gone before....of course, my camera always comes along!

If you are interested, I have several alpine climbing trip reports posted on my webpage:

You have an incredible webpage! Seattle???
I'm familiar with the PNW. You have some really
great photography.

What type of climbs did you do in Red Rocks???

Geez, I'm really impressed! It's my humble opinion that you'll go FAR here on Summitpost.

(Sorry if I ask too many questions, but that's the only way I learn anything!!!)

Don't worry, discussing anything related to climbing or photography is what I love to do, so questions are great.

I've lived in BC most of my life, but recently moved to Seattle to start my graduate studies at Univ of Wash. I'm excited to be living here, even closer to the North Cascades, my favorite place for rugged alpine climbing and beauty.

I climbed once at Red Rocks, but it was in June so we only lasted 2 days in the 105° heat before continuing onto Yosemite (my second favorite place). We climbed Epinephrine (amazing 6 pitches in that chimney, made even more slippery by the sweat on our hands) and then Dogma the next day....do you climb in Red Rocks?

No, I hike in the Red Rocks. I was just taken
aback by the way you organize your photos and
information. And, the way your camera takes
advantage of the "smallest" amount of light is nothing short of incredible. I also don't want to take up too much of your time.

Please, have a very nice time in Seattle!!!

Where in the Olympics is this? You should post it to my Olympic Range page. Sweet shot!

I took this shot in Cream Lake Basin near Mt. Ferry and Pulitzer. It was on Night 6 of a cross-Olympics traverse starting in the S. Fork, schwacking into the Valhallas, crossing over Olympus, then across the Bailey Range, and out the High Divide. It was in early July 2007, so as you can see in the photo there was still a good snowcover on the higher points.

Any suggestions for other areas I might explore this coming summer in the Olympics?

Royal Basin and Deception Basin (Mt Deception and Mt Mystery area)at the read of Royal Creek. Excellent spots! My personal favorite is LaCrosse Basin and O'neil Pass. Sounds like you had an awesome adventure there! The Valhallas are spectacular indeed, but I have only seen them from a distance. Hope to see some photos from that trip on the Olympic page soon:)

Here's a photo of our camp above the Geri-Freki Glacier in the heart of the Valhallas. You can post it on your page if you'd like, thanks.

Reminds me of my own similar photo at Big Bend ("Who Needs a Five Star Hotel?"). You should add some technical details--I'm sure many are interested. Thanks for sharing! --mark d.

Good idea - now I've added the exposure settings to all the photos in my night photography library.
(SOME OF MY NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY)

The exposure for this photo was 30 seconds (with f/4.0 and ISO 1000). 30 seconds is about the maximum amount of time you can leave the shutter open before you start to see the movement of the stars (due to the earth's spin at 15°/hr, or 360°/day). The main problem with low light photography is the higher ISO speeds, which generate more noise....
