wow... and I never been there. It looks so beautiful... and nice photography - flowers, lake, mountains.
Thanks Liba. It's worth the trip out if you can manage it sometime. Very interesting visitor centers with lots of information and history. The lake is interesting, still covered with 100s of floating logs from the blast, on the left side of the lake.
Very nicely done!
I lived near Mount Saint Helens for a short time..... your photo depicts it's beauty very well.
Thanks so much Roxy. I'd love to live in that area sometime. Very nice all around.
...to echo what the other SPers said - beautiful.
Thanks Sarah! I was so disappointed when I woke, everything was clouded in. Lucky for me by the time we packed up the clouds broke and I found a nice spot.
gorgeous photo deserving of the first place finish. You have the vision and the skill. Great to have you around.
Happy climbing, Chad.
Thank you so much Marc... I'm just happy that you and others enjoy taking a look every now and then. You have so many fantastic photos from different areas, I really appreciate your thoughts. I especially like your photos of Mount Tom and Basin Mountain- I could look at them anytime.
I just came back from the Philippines where
I flew over and observed hundreds of volcanoes,
but NONE looked more attractive than Mt. St. Helens.
Didn't the 30th anniversary just go by?
Who knows where the time goes ...
Thanks Larry- Would not have have minded some time in the Philippines recently. Spent the last weekend freezing my butt off while it snowed.
Its amazing how the years seem to go by from events like that.
Thank you for posting. Your photo reminds me of my visit to Mt Saint Helens back in 2001. Greetings, Henryk.
Thank you Henry, I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Thought you were way, way, way south this weekend. Fantastic photo
Right. Last weekend featured a lot of whiteout though- looking like I may head back this weekend- let me know if you are interested. This was in July, but I liked the photo and I didn't see anything like it on the Mt St Helens page.
Well I should have noticed the fact that the complete lack of snow would indicate this wasn't this past weekend.
This is just gorgeous, Chad! The contrast of the flowers with their beautiful rose color with the mountain and the lake and the clouds floating is just ravishing! I love it!
Congratulations and cheers,
Thank you Eric- Your photos are pretty spectacular so I'll happily take those comments. It was definitely a nice day.
Thank you Ed. Lucky enough to in the right place at the right time.
Great composition, but We must remember - this is sleeping beast.
