I'm a new one to SP. What kind of camera are you using to capture God's creations? Think I'll trade my camera in. Love your photos !!!

Thank you for the kind words. Welcome to SP! This picture was taken with my old Nikon, the cheapest one at the time. It mets it's fate while climbing in Olympic National Park. Many of my other shots were taken with my sis's borrowed camera, an Olympus, another cheap one. I guess all I can is that lighting is important to a photo, so maybe that's why mine turned out great. Thanks for stopping by. God bless:)

YES, you're right! But, I'll probably end up with an Olympus. In Arizona & southern Utah, there seems to be PLENTY of light. AND... God always seems to be doing His best here. REGARDS to you & your new bride; hope you don't have too many storms blowing your way. God bless !!!

In a moment, I feel calm. The perspective of the sky and serene water draw you calmly in toward the silhouette of the mountain. The silhouette's dark really makes this image. Really alluring. 10+ Vote.

Thanks for your earlier vote to my images. Pity that I never had a camera for many years. Still, over the coming winter I will write them.

Your welcome for the votes. And thank you for your compliment on my image. I was fortunate to be out at 11:30 at "night" to get this image. A lot of people talk about how great Denali is and stuff but SW Alaska has some incredibly remote places. I don't think human beings will ever venture there :)

I lived in Dillingham, AK for 7 years; (late 1970's to early 1980's). There was a 21 mile road from the town to Lake Aleknagik. The recreation was great: fishing, boating and driving on the frozen lake in the winter and spring. Lake Aleknagik was connected to a series of lakes "above" it to Dillingham, via the Wood River. I went back in March of 2005, and was stunned to see most of the lake as open water. Global warming?? Believe it!! Hiking and climbing were rare and difficult, as the alder and other brush were daunting to traverse.

Well, it was surely beautiful to enjoy this area for about a month when I worked at the summer camp there. I didn't realize the ice had melted back so much. It is a sign that this old world is decaying away. Thanks for commenting:)
