Re: superb scenery

Thanks Tomek. It was a beautiful day to be out in the mountains, it has been rainy here in Washington for too long! But every now and then during the winter season you see some really incredible things in the Cascades.

Re: superb scenery

You've a talent coming along Josh. Keep it up and you could aim for a photographic career.

Keep your eyes open for the unusual shots, perpectives and lighting. People shots need to be good, close-up, with sharp facials. Preferably without posing - catch them in the "moment".

Get yourself into good positions for taking the shots. E.g. camera low to ground, camera close to the wall - gives foreground and thus depth. The foreground trees in this shot really enhance the framing.

You've some great shots recently.

good stuff

Funny how the landscape has turned many a mountaineer into amateur or even professional photographers. Awesome shot! Hooray for winter high pressure systems in the Cascades.

Re: good stuff

Part of being a photographer is being at the right place at the right time. But that's not necessarily luck, especially when its planned out and hard work is put into climbing to the places that some of us go to. Good moments like these are inevitable when traveling through the Cascades for as long as I have.

Re: good stuff

Talking about being in the right place at the right time. Been watching the BBC Frozen Planet series.

Those guys spent a month on the Antarctic Ice, filming penguins. But, eventually the prize filming emerged - penguins, full on frontal, gliding out of the water, airborne and belly-flopping onto the ice, right in front of the lens, and then in high res slow motion. Just incredible.

Yes, special shots can just appear, so keep that lens ready. And then, other times you just have to wait.
