love the winter landscape and that mist floating above forests, great.
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.
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.
Thanks Ray, some day I would love to have some sort of career in landscape photography.
Thanks Rob, always a lovely sight.
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.
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.
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.
Thanks Ski, you should come for another visit to the North Cascades this winter.
Congratulations! I love the soft light with the snow in a winter landscape; it is full of peace!
Thanks Edomar, your pictures portray that very well about what you said.
