Re: Sure...

Su'pose be some nice weather here in da Pacific Northwest for the next 10 days or so. I'll just have to get after a few more larches. That way I can give y'all the Monday blues, or coppers in this case, a week from now.

Thanks for da vote. As you can see, the untilted shot won the election.

Re: "ray gun"???!!!

ray gun = digital camera (thought I was borrowing this term from you).

the shot does make me want to get into the backcountry one more time but not likely this weekend...... :(

Re: "ray gun"???!!!

Indeed. I did use "ray gun" in a comment somewhere. I think it was with Mr. Bolton. And I was referring to digital cameras. I think it was in a Message Board post. My memory...fuzzy...fading...flushing...draining...sewage...dark...stinky...help!

Great shot!

Especially the golden color of the trees.

Best photo of Dragontail

that I've seen. The trees add so much to the shot. Is this peak and the area roughly 3 hours from SeaTac? Looks like a destination to me.

Re: Best photo of Dragontail

Well, let's see, from the moment you got in a rental car at Sea-tac, if you started driving at regular posted highway speeds and then hiked the trail at approx. 2 miles an hour...let's see...could you get to this scene in 3 hours? Um...no.

But thanks for stopping, I mean driving, by.

Re: Best photo of Dragontail

Sorry, you must have understood, not 3 hours to the summit but to the trailhead.


Klenke - Jun 4, 2010 4:09 pm - Hasn't voted

Re: Best photo of Dragontail

It's about 130 miles from Sea-Tac to the trailhead then about 5 miles and about 3000' gain to the place this photo was taken.

I suppose if you were really speedy, you could get from airport to this spot in 5 hours, but traffic and other delays will make this take longer. 6-7 hours is more realistic.

Photo for sale?

Can I buy this photo from you? I would probably want to buy more than photo. I love your photography. The larches are peaking!

Re: Photo for sale?

That's kind of you to think this photo worthy of purchasing. I have to inform you that this picture doesn't exist as a digital photograph. It was taken way back when I had a celluloid camera. I have the negative and the print and the jpeg you see above.

If you are still interested in purchasing the photo I wouldn't even know where to begin to put a price on it. Perhaps a dollar per larch tree in the photo.

oops. "more than one photo". There is another shot I really like that is similar. Just a slightly different angle. This mountain is my favorite!
